I want to talk about this commercial for a minute.
First of all, if I was sitting in first class, I would not be drinking water with lime.
Secondly, my mom's reaction: WHY doesn't she just switch seats with the blond guy?
I LOVE the blond guy - I mean, I'm glad I'm not sitting next to him for hours on end, but he's great.
And finally, we, here in Tuvalu, believe this is a weak campaign.
It does not make us think of insurance, it makes us think of how we can't afford first class.
I was watching some television with my mom last night, you know, because it was Thursday.
We missed Jeopardy! which was a shame because I like to run into the kitchen and listen to it on the radio (the television is delayed a little compared to the radio) and shout out the answers microseconds before she can. Yeah. I cheat.
Anyway, we missed Jeopardy! and there wasn't much else on.
I tuned into a home improvement show in which people were showing off the renovations of their bizarro RV's. One woman rebuilt the inside of what looked like one of those ambulettes for only $400. She had built a lot of things from plumbers pipe.
Another fellow built a lovely home in an old school bus.
My mom's reaction: (burying her head in a pillow) I can't do this anymore.
So we watched some Seinfeld.
Today is Youngest's last full day of school.
He asked if he could burn his vocabulary book.
I let him go in yesterday (he has a viral infection in his chest wall thankyouverymuch) because he wanted to take the social studies final exam.
He got a 92.
I felt a little sad when I was making the last lunch of the year, but then I got over it.
Youngest has changed so much this year, he's really matured.
We are both anxious for him to have a growth spurt as he's still kind of short.
Middle lazes around, or is in town with friends.
I don't see him much.
He's got one more test next week.
And Oldest is working on a demolition crew. Did I already tell you that?
He seems to like it and comes home covered in dust.
I've got some running around to do.
I need to pack some things for wedding and write down phone numbers.
(Mom, don't forget to bring your instant coffee over.)
And what did I spy on the kitchen counter just now?
A very important paper that Youngest needed to bring to school today.
I guess I know what my first errand will be.
