So, everyone's been gearing up to leave. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but Bean and Sam are both gone now. This is slightly bewildering. Julia is having a week down in the city, so I feel a little like a jellyfish. But I'm not a hermaphrodite.
Anyhow, I have been scribbling down things of note, but I can't find it. But here are 2 gems from yesterday.
Cafe lunch: the legacy continues.
I sat at a table with 3 complete live wires. One decided to reach for my plate after I'd switched to my salad (the greens were WAY salty...) and so we had to have a little talk about how asking if someone was done and if they could have their food before making a snatch for it. Moments later, she did the same thing with the lady across from her. So I made her ask...
"Aooooolll dooooone with Tomatoes! Alllllllllllllllll done!" Complete with tomahawk chopping motion...
To which the third lady - without missing a beat - solemnly declared: "Amen."
Lunch proceeded as usual.
At dinner, the 3.5 year old started talking to his mother:
"We're going to heaven soon..."
"Um, no we're not..."
"We are if we don't eat any food."
"But we are eating food...right now."
Came completely out of left field.
So, I really don't have to throw a little self-pity party here for myself, right? You can feel that slightly-panicky-sinking-stomach-breath-caught-in-throat feeling when I think about missing Bean and Sam, right?
Hope all is well,
