Today I had a day off, and I had three goals, to wax my eyebrows, color my hair, and work on a garden row. Two out of three aren't bad, and the garden will be there next time I have the time, I guess. The day started off badly with my waking from an incredibly realistic dream of Hotter dying, to a not-dead Hotter letting me know The XY was on the warpath over Middle Child's winter coat getting somehow damaged (oddly it was discovered on HIS watch, but he blames ME). I was peeved and pounded out an angry e-mail, then debugged my laptop (which had somehow become infested with adware) and got dressed and took Hotter to the grocery store. I also discovered that while organic coconut palm sugar makes very FIZZY water kefir, the result tastes positively vomitous. A lot of people seem to favor coconut water in water kefir, but every time I've tried to incorporate anything coconut, I've gotten puke-scented swill. So I think I'm done with trying to board that particular bandwagon! Finally, it would be great if newborn humans were born with the same unerring ability to locate nipples that cat-feet are naturally gifted with (I thought the girls had recovered from our mammography misadventures of a few days ago, but I was wrong, apparently).
Speaking of boobs and babies, yesterday as I was dropping food off at a table, I heard a person at another table urging a lady breastfeeding at the next table not to cover up on their account (she was attempting to feed her baby and juggle a blanket, with mixed results that were pissing the baby off). The next time I dropped food off at a table in that area, the nursing mom had discarded the blanket and the baby was drinking quietly. The two fabulously gay men whose food I was dropping off looked at the four appetizers they'd ordered between them, blinked (two of said appetizers are bigger than most meals), and then one of them leaned over toward the mother and baby and said "hey can I borrow that blanket to hide under while I eat this? Because this isn't going to be pretty."
Sometimes people are kind of adorable.
How are all of YOU?
