And so it came to pass. And so it was. And so it was meant to be…
Last night I sent Darling out to fetch the scripts from Tarzhay (whom we use as a pharmacy, just because I am there four days a week anyways) and he took a little longer than expected. No surprise there. Darling can turn a lawn mowing job into a whole-day affair. Darling can make car washing into a weekend project. Yes, Darling can stretch out things to do into more things to do, the complete opposite of DG the well-skilled procrastinator. There I was, sipping a glass of
sake (it was awful) Frog Hollow, minding my own business. The rain returned with a vengeance and fog was settling in all around our little-town-that-begins-with-R. It was seriously the perfect setting for a suspense or horror film. I could hear the “tick tick tick” of the clock. The house was making creaking noises. I could hear the dog’s every breathe in her cocoon behind the couch (and over the air vent). Rain was falling with a deafening sound on the roof above (this happens when you have a cathedral ceiling). The slider sprang open, the dog and I jumped ten feet and Darling appeared from the storm…
Anyways, he blurted out, “GUESS WHAT I FOUND!” And I knew right away what he was talking about. Perhaps because we had just spent three months searching for it. And we spent three hours playing it last night.
Oui! We Wii’d last night. Sounds dirty, doesn’t it? We only played the one that comes with the console, Wii Sports. We were in hysterics. We worked up a sweat, too! You see, with this video game system you actually have to GET UP AND MOVE. Like, the golf game? You have to get up and practice your swing. Bowling? Heck, that was HARD! It was more fun than real bowling! I’m not kidding!
After breakfast we are going bowling…
