1. I was in Walmart the other day and passed a display of scarf and glove sets. The packaging read, "Set of two, gloves and scarf." Um, shouldn't that be a set of three? Or do you only get one glove?
2. I've decided that if we have any more sons, we're going to forget the whole "teaching the proper anatomical term" nonsense and just refer to it as Body Part #37. This way, when he decides to shriek about it in public, oh, say, in the grocery store, what he'll say will be, "Mom! (My brother) just bonked me on my Body Part #37!" instead of the other, more embarrassing alternative.
3. We were in a parking lot tonight and saw a darling little Japanese toddler bend down and touch the snow with one finger, obviously entranced by it. He was so entranced, he had to commit the moment to memory by using the taste method, the time-honored method used by all toddlers everywhere. Before his horrified mother could stop him, he'd popped a whole chunk of dirty, muddy, tire-marked snow in his mouth. Turns out that "What do you think you're doing? Spit that out!" sounds the same in any language.
4. I've lost four pounds doing the Body-for-Life program this week (yes!) but I'm sorry to say, I got sidetracked tonight. I came down with a killer headache and nausea thing (no, I didn't eat the muddy snow too) and had to resort to Ibuprofen and Coke. That will probably set me back a bit, but I have to say, getting off this first four pounds has felt so good. I can do it! It is possible!
And now I'm going to bed. Good night.
Anybody wanna come help me clean my house tomorrow? I'm having company on Sunday and I'm nowhere near ready ...
