Readin’ Writin’ ‘Rithmetic


Overheard at the breakfast table this morning while playing Candy Crush Saga together:

Peanut, pointing at the level indicator on the screen: “Level 2”

Me: “Yes, it is level 2.  *pause* Peanut, are you learning to read?”

Peanut: “Yes, Daddy.”

Well, that clears that up… at least until I ask if he knows how to balance the Federal budget and the answer will be the same.

Something I found myself saying on social media this week (now deleted):

I would go to a prayer meeting if there was bourbon and Count Chocula afterward… well, unless it was cheap, rotgut bourbon.

That is all.

Great Expectations

A statement overheard during the weekend:

You don’t have huge expectations for a day that starts out with a child handing you poop that’s fallen out of his diaper.

That is all.

It had to be you, lovable you

Overheard at the supermarket this afternoon:  nothing says “love” like a hairy heart-shaped box filled with beef jerky.

Rain! The crops are saved!

The California drought nearly ended yesterday (at least in our front yard) with a dramatic downpour….


…until the rain stopped after about 90 seconds.  That is all.
