Armpits, Covered Dishes and Pop Bottles
This is a picture of Spencer and IV playing with a friend who is a little older. If you look closely, you can see that he is teaching our boys a very important right of passage: The underarm farting sound. Ah, Yes! What little boy doesn't think this skill is the life of the party?
Speaking of parties, have you ever noticed how CDO we women get at covered dish suppers? (CDO is OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order.....)
We all whisper to each other "What did you bring?" "Who's potato salad is this one?" "Is that Betty's deviled eggs?" It is like we all become super paranoid about germs and only eating food from someone we know. If I know her then she MUST have a clean kitchen and wash her hands, right?
The men are totally different. It is a personal challenge to sample each dish. Their chinette plates are so full they need sideboards.
Spencer has been going to enrichment camp for the past two weeks. He came home Friday and asked me how to play spin the bottle. WHAT???!!!He is only 7? I explained the game to him, which he thought was a gross cootie-fest. Then he told me which little brat, I mean little girl, asked him to play spin the bottle. Isn't it weird how so much has changed in the past 20 years but stupid spin the bottle has been around forever?
And as a final note- have you seen the trailer for Half Blood Prince? Oh wow!
