So it's almost here, Easter, for those of you who are good catholics, it means next friday you can eat red meat! But seriously, it is Easter, and we all know thats when we celebrate the reanimation of zombie Jesus with chocolate bunnies and deviled eggs (seriously whose idea was that?). For those of us who are parents its another excuse to get your child more toys/games/etc. In our case, I made the mistake of showing the wee one the Dora the Explorer Microphone, not fully thinking of the ramifications of my actions (no remember pre children, my favorite thing was buying the most annoyingly loud toy for any of my friends kids). All through Target she's pressing the button and singing along..."Come on vamanos, everybody lets go! Come on, let's get to it. I know that we can do it." Which mind you is cute there first two or three times, but after 10 minutes of various songs, I wanted to put it back, and we all know how hard that can be once they have it in their hands. So, its been hiding out since we got home last weekend, and I really don't know what to do, I need to explore it to see if there's a volume control, but I fear there isn't one. What do you do in these situations?
It's been this way for almost two years now, and next Friday I'll be 38, which puts me closer and closer to 40 and further and further away from 30. 20 year reunion, yes I'm sure its sometime this summer, and yes I'll probably go to see everyone who didn't like me then, but now we're all Facebook friends. See how many kids everyone has, see who's already going grey (this guy, but it blends well with the blonde). I remember my 10 year, sorta, the first night was a drunken haze, the bbq the second day was a total blurry hangover. And the dinner the last night was really nice down at the train station. Queue Boyz II Men's its so hard to say goodbye (which every senior class from 92-95 used as their anthem), and scene. But seriously there are a few people who I genuinely miss and will enjoy seeing. Did I mention my birthday is next week? Presents are not optional, please send cash or gift cards.
