* We went to see a friend’s son get his award from his swim banquet today. I really do miss how proud kids are of themselves sports and other activities in high school. *sigh*
* On our way down and back I had Mate listening to Hamilton. “Isn’t it great?” I enthused.
“It’s won several awards,” he said stoically.
“But yeah, I just, you know, wanted to share it with you!”
“Then stop giving me intros to the songs!”
He’s right, you know. That teacher thing never really goes away.
* This happened (I posted it on Twitter/FB but I’m still giggling)
Me: *spazzes out*
Me: *with dignity* Bug.
Mate: You’re not gonna kill it like that!
Me: I don’t need to kill it. I just need it to know not to surprise me.
Mate: Dogs—get that!
Dogs: GET THE BUG!!!!
… and that is why the expression is
“Dead as that bug on my rug.”
* Also still giggling because the promotions department is trying to figure out WTF gives with Hiding the Moon. It’s a crossover between Fish Out of Water and Racing for the Sun, so what does that make it? Fish 4 and Racing 2? The fuck?
