I cannot think of one good reason why you would want to know this, but I have been sick more in the last two months than in the last two years. No joke. The same old congestion, cough, sinus pressure. Ugh.
That's why I've been sort of "off" this week - yet another relapse. Those incoherent sentences? And rambling stories? Yeah, that's my best work right now.
So, this morning at dance class the forced mommy conversation for an hour was torturous. Here's a snippet:
Mom1: "Lily wants her hair long and curly and BROWN!" (said in a fit of giggles).
Mom2: "You're kidding!!!! Taylor would kill for hair like Lily's! (this is shrieked at Mom3).
Mom3: "Little girls just love African Americans! The dark eyes! The skin!"
Me (inside my head): Wha....?
Mom2: "My daughter just loves to dress up!"
All three moms laugh as if this is the most hilarious comment ever.
Mom1: "Lily wanted dark skin, dark hair, dark eyes. Poor thing. She's blonde and blue-eyed!" (again with the hysterics).
Me: "Your husband might have had some questions".
Everyone looks over at me. Silence.
Can someone please tell me how this was not funny? Is it the DayQuil?
So, my day really turned around when I saw that the chalkboard sign of 'Specials' outside the seafood restaurant next to Starbucks, where S and I always go after class, had been messed with.
In 'Sea Bass' someone had erased the 'B' making today's special "Sea Ass". Which I thoroughly enjoyed.
And if someone can come to my house and help me bang my cell phone against the wall maybe together we can extract the picture I snapped.
