I’ve pictures I need to finish posting, and when I’m behind in that I avoid posting at all because it makes me feel guilty. But an un-updated blog is a thing of woe, so I’m going to tell you some silly little recent stories to tide us over until I get to the pictures.
I ate school lunch opposite S-kun today, and since a bunch of kids are out with the flu, there were a lot of extra milk cartons. S-kun took four in addition to his own – not that he needs it, at half my age he is already half a foot taller than me.
ME: I know that you have English next period, so if you’re drinking all that as an excuse to leave my class to go to the bathroom…
HIM: No! I am drinking it because milk makes my bones strong! (does muscle pose).
ME: Really? Because I’ll be keeping an eye on you, and if you try to run away…
HIM: I don’t run away! I have courage! (makes more poses and drinks the next carton through five straws at once.)
Half-way through the next period he beckons me over.
HIM: (whispers) Can I go to the bathroom?
ME: I TOLD you this was going to happen! Can’t you -
(He squirms pitifully and puts his hands between his legs.)
ME: Oh, fine – get out of here.
