*Sometimes you wonder how much a four year old is listening, and how much of an adults conversation they are actually "getting". But, I figured it out, one day this week, when he said, "Mommy's job is more ridiculous than Daddy's job!"
*I was putting cream on his legs, which have a lot of eczema on them right now. I told him, "I really wish we could make this rash disappear!" He answered, "Well, we could get a magician. Are there any magicians around here we can call?"
*(The weather has been in the 30's in Pittsburgh this week). Dylan and I were sitting at the kitchen table, looking out at the back yard. There was a whole bunch of birds that we watched fly around and around and around in circles. They all seemed irritated and confused. I had this thought... When birds fly south for the winter, do they always come back at the same time every year? They must be really ticked off this time. "We cut our Florida trip short, for THIS?!"
*I woke up to snow on the ground, and in the sky, this morning. HaHaHa...Very funny, Mother Nature.
*When I was in high school, I had to take a typing class (on actual typewriters - imagine that!) One of my best friends was in the class with me, and we sat with our desks facing each other. The instructor would give us timed typing drills. Almost every time he would yell "STOP!", you would hear "click, click, click, clickety click..". "WHO WAS THAT?!", the poor man would scream, a vein in his head bulging. My friend would sit there, innocently looking around the room as if to try and guess who it had been, and I would have to bite my tongue to keep from laughing at her. Poor thing just could not type to save her life. I loved that class, and actually enjoyed the timed drills. So, when I found this link , I enjoyed reliving my youth. Each time the drill ended, I imagined I heard, "click, click, clickety click". I discovered I can type 50-60 words a minute, with pretty good accuracy. Anyone want to hire me?
*If you ever wondered how fast (or slow) you read, you can also go here.
And, you were wondering what you were going to do this weekend?
