Today, I would like to take a little break from my Journey to Stossel.
Today, I would just like to keep it simple, and share with you six things that happened this week:
- I went on my son’s day camp field trip to Millennium park, and learned that one of the biggest activities amongst elementary school children these days is putting their heads together over a cell phone and singing along to hip-hop songs played on speakerphone.
- On said field trip, we played the game of “Who Would Win in a Battle?” The boys were unanimous in thinking that Superman would beat everyone. Batman. Darth Vadar. Iron Man. Ninja Turtles. Johnny Test. Everyone. This surprised me. It turns out those laser eyes of his have earned some R-E-S-P-E-C-T from the 5-8 year old male demographic. (Not so surprising: that Yoda would beat Phinneas AND Ferb.)
- My son annoyed me for the first time, ever. Oh, sure, I have felt inconvenienced by him at times, but never annoyed. Like, real deal annoyance: the kind one has for that annoying stranger on the bus. The details and circumstances are not important, as I feel it was an inevitability. Still, it broke my heart.
- The thought crossed my mind: Maybe sessions of Congress should be turned into a reality show. With solo interviews, Congressmen speaking about their strategies, and weekly votes on issues. (Just to take the temperature. I'm not talking about changing the lawmaking process. Stahp.) I'd watch it.
- I decided I might truly dislike one of my cats. I've joked about it with my friends, (#Kendallisajerk) but yesterday it felt undeniable. You have to really know me to understand how odd this is. I was always the girl who got cat calendars from everyone on my birthday because I was THE GIRL WHO LOVED CATS. So who am I, now? Because I mean it, man. Kendall is a jerk.
- My favorite quote from my almost-6-year-old son, yesterday: “Welp, now I know what it’s like to be a kid.“
So that’s it. Six things that happened this week. A little breathing room. Now, on to Fox News...
That's my piece, and that's my peace. Thank you for taking the time to read my silly words. It means the world. Carry on....
