As he was about to leave this morning, Ken patted me on the head and said something very general that means “goodbye.” I thought the neutrality of the head pat combined with whatever it was he said, it being so bland I can’t even remember what it was… was all a bit sober & businesslike, even for married folks. I called towards his back “Pretty soon you’re going to start calling me Pal” and he yelled from the door “Have a good day, Sport!’ Without missing a beat Emily answered “See ya later, Kiddo!”
Speaking of my buddy Ken, he is a freaking genius. He waved his hands very quickly over the computer keyboard, chanted mysterious things in a language I don’t understand, sacrificed a small woodland creature and somehow that combination magically got the Flickr uploader to run a hell of a lot faster. It’s still not wicked-fast, an actual computer term printed on actual computer guy t-shirts worn by actual computer geeks, but it’s just about as fast as I can handle. Yesterday I added Thanksgiving pictures from our visit to my sister’s house in California, Ken’s birthday dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse and a couple from home. There’s also a few new ones scattered here and there, but like Easter eggs, another official computer term, you’ll just have to hunt around for those!
Liz is off school today, in celebration of one of those self-created school holidays… Teachers Pray Over Grades Day or something like that. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but they sure do look like they could use the break, so whatever. I’m not complaining because No School Today translates to Liz and me enjoying a full day of Contemplative Sports, with special emphasis on heading out for some shoe shopping. Catch ya later, amiable chums!
