Meat and You

It's not really a floor...

He's on my list.

'What will your obituary say?' at

I can see dying in a modern art museum. I will probably be killed by an artist when I scowl, wrinkle my nose, and say, "*That* is *not* art." I will probably be impaled by said non-art.

Easy-Bake Oven? Never had one.

Let's try again...

'What will your obituary say?' at

Laughing hysterically. What a way to go.

Kid Rock? How about The Rock.

'Cause really? Who would you rather have?

Flush that idea.

The Boy's class has a stuffed bear that each of the kids gets to take home and do who knows what with it. Yesterday they were naming the bear.

Me - How was your day?
Boy - It was okay, but I got upset.
Me - Why?
Boy - When we were naming the bear, everyone laughed at me.
Me - Why?
Boy - They laughed at the name I wanted.
Me - What was it?
Boy - Meteor, The Toughest Bear.
Me - That's a cool name. What were some of the other names?
Boy - Beary, Zach and Cody.
Me - Well, I like Meteor. What did y'all end up naming him?
Boy - Beary.
Me - When you bring him home, we'll call him Meteor. That is a much better name than Beary.
Boy - Okay.

Attention First Graders! Have some imagination! Beary? Seriously? Gag. Meteor, The Toughest Bear is *so* much better. And stop laughing at my kid. I'll use the stink eye on you.

During Meteor's home visits, each kid has to bring a photo to school of him doing something.

The Boy's suggestion? "You know my bank that looks like a toilet? Can we sit him on there and take a small piece of paper and make it look like a newspaper and take a picture of that to take to school?"

Me - (Sure!) Uh...probably not. Some people don't really care for toilet humor. So maybe we can do that and take a photo for us, but send a different one to school.

See First Graders?! Imagination. You all have one. Use it.

Poetry in motion

I'm editing a video about a guest ranch and one of the shots is an old-style church with buggies, a wooden fence and a pony. I thought to myself, "How bucolic."

Bucolic? I can remember words like bucolic, but I can't remember easy words like shoe, fence-post, and fraction? (Really)

Anywho...see for yourself.
