Wednesday Random Things

More thought pebbles: Dude, stop whistling. This is an office. Whistling is the most annoying sound on the planet to people other than the one doing the whistling. And to top it off, don’t whistle the Foxwoods theme song. If it stays stuck in my head I WILL go over there and inflict you with […]

Freshly Bathed Boy

Is there a better smell in the world than your favorite boy fresh from the bath? I love the smell of his shampoo. Over the years I’ve exaggerated swooning whenever I smell his hair after it’s been washed, so to this day he makes me smell his hair first thing after his bath or shower […]

Another Day of Pool

Okay, I think in the past 48 hours, I’ve spent 8 in my sister’s pool. Now before you say “are you insane!? It’s September 21st! You’ll die of pneumonia!” let me remind you that they bought a heater for the pool, so really it’s like swimming in a giant hot tub. Yesterday it was a […]

Ahhhhh, that was a good day

I’m almost sad to be home and in the house. Time for bed, though. We had the Johnny Appleseed festival (pretty decent, but dudes, figure out the parking. I was thisclose to saying “screw it” and just driving home. Have you considered doing a shuttle bus from the Watertower Plaza or something?
