The Snap

Chicken’s Cat, Val, who is chunky and
vocal and loves the boys better.
Chicken adores her.

I’m not sure I can articulate the thing that causes the snap.

There is a moment when my brain–which has been running like a hamster on a wheel for some time–simply stops.

The hamster is thrown off the fucking wheel, into a wall, and it just lays there for a while, looking dazedly around while the wheel continues to turn in the background.

The hamster threw me off of the wheel today.

The only productive thing i did was buy milk, and check in on my offspring.  For those curious, Squish gave a speech for Student Council and feel she did well, Zoomboy has a C in English now, Big T is as flamingly liberal as I am and thinks Trevor Noah is doing a splendid job on The Daily Show, and Chicken has procured a 5 yo rescue cat named Valyrie.  Mate had his own snap tonight and almost fell asleep before we served him his cake.  All the kids are a little put out that Mate and I didn’t make much of our birthdays this year, but what can I say? We’re both lying dazed by the hamster wheel, going, “Oh for sweet fuck’s sake, we have to get back on that thing?”

So tomorrow expect Fanfic Frida– and if we want some interactive stuff, PLEASE send me pictures (either on FB, Twitter, or here) of the couple you most want to see. I got some VERY wonderful John/Jack pictures for my birthday, and if I don’t hear anything definitive, I’m doing John/Jack again, because I think we could do some hurt comfort there, don’t you?

And from here on out, it’s a dead sprint to GRL, so expect to hear some of that.  I’m hideously behind, I really am.  But I guess I needed to catch my breath before jumping on the wheel again.
