Meredith has a half day at school today, which means it’s also Show and Tell Day! After thinking long and hard about who or what to bring, she finally decided that Alex the Cat was the perfect choice.
Meredith: I thought about bringing Rainbow Bear, but I love Alex the best. If Alex was a REAL cat, I would feed her and take good care of her.
Me: Wouldn’t it be weird if Alex came to life and you really COULD feed her?
Meredith: No. But it WOULD be weird if my shoes came to life in the middle of the night and killed my family!
Me: Yeah. That would be weird. And disappointing.
Okay. If any unfortunate events take place in the Pudding House, please be on the lookout for this guy (and his identical twin):
This evening, Jeff and I will be kicking off our week long Eight Years of Marriage Jubilee with sushi and the possibility of Tom Russell! According to the people who make up these things, Year Eight equals Bronze, Linens, and Lace. In other words, I’m still holding out for Year Twenty Four—The Year of Musical Instruments! (Cross your fingers for me and my dream cello! Eight down, sixteen to go!)
