I’ve heard people say bloggers paint a hyper-stylized portrait of their lives. Maybe they’re right. Maybe it’s more art than reality. I don’t know. These thoughts are too deep to have heading into a holiday weekend. But, in the interest of balancing the universe and all, today I’m going to keep it real. Here are a few scenes/notes from recent weeks:
My daughter is singing The Cure. All by herself. Just broke out into spontaneous Cure. Next thing I know, she’ll be dying her hair black and using my eyeliner.
The ice cream truck is driving around the neighborhood at 8:42 pm playing Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells. I’m at a loss for words.
I’m not unlike a toddler: I can only handle so much excitement before I need a two hour nap.
Imagine you’re the door-to-door verizon guy looking to peddle your wares. You knock on the door to what appears to be a completely normal house. The door opens and out bolts a dog who piddles on your feet and 6-year-old in handcuffs.
Wishing you all a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend! Enjoy yourselves!
