This Week's Hairbrained Musings from the Train (2)
*Crap happens. It happens even more when the dog eats watermelon.
*The first time your child shows you she can tie her own shoe, you fill with pride (even if she is eight years old). The second time isn't so bad either. By the 4,377th time you witness this "amazing feat", let me assure you-- you will no longer give a crap. You may even fantasize about ripping out said shoestrings and yelling, "Oh yeah! Well tie that, why don't ya?!"
*My children are incapable of learning choreography or doing anything resembling dancing. We have spent over $700 this year to really drive that point home... and we have the video to prove it.
*Regardless of the circumstances, being mooned is always funny in retrospect, and never at the moment it is actually happening. I was reminded of this Friday in the school cafeteria-- by a first grader! What a way to "end" the school year. You see what I did there, don't you?
*Do not ever ask me in a condescending tone of voice if I "could go any slower or take any longer" in the grocery store check out line. Trust me when I tell you that, once you ask, I will find a way.
Until next time...
