1. With the kids home from school, things have slowed down a lot. I've been able to reorganize my pantry, wash all our windows, and answer a ton of emails. You guys, I've overcome my fear of going in the pantry now--it's so nice and clean! If you've been reading this for awhile, you know that's miraculous--after The Incident of the Rat in the Nighttime, I was severely traumatized. I think I've overcome, y'all!
2. Last Friday night, I went out to eat with some other moms from the school. We had our hair did, and our goin' out clothes on. As we sat in a large booth, chatting and laughing, a very inebriated, much younger dude came and sat with us. We ignored him. It seemed like the smartest thing to do. He sat there, hunched over, looked at each of us and then yelled, "Merrrrrrrrrrr!" Like it was meant to be a purr or something, but just didn't quite get there. We ignored him some more. Then he went away. Is there some secret language of drunk people that I am not wise to?
3. Last Wednesday, I took the kids to a community pool. While they were swimming, one of the other kids there decided to make a significant "deposit" in the pool. Then we left. Then Ava came down with strep throat. Is there a connection?
4. And one more bonus: This year our church had two Easter services. One was in our regular location, and one was in a local pub. We reckoned that Jesus turned water into wine, dontcha know, so He'd for sure hang out at a pub. I sang a Cyndi Lauper song, just for kicks. Jason bought a beer for a guy that came to visit. (Incidentally, when we lived in Dallas, I used to say that we should call our College Bible Study "Free Beer"--I thought more people might come. No one else seemed to think that was a good idea.)
Okay, guesses now, please! Which one isn't true? And let's see your two truths and a lie in the comments!
