Day 13

 

If you look closely, you'll notice:
a) I'm not wearing my glasses
b) I'm thoroughly amused

Ben and I came downstairs for dinner. 

Dad was sitting at the table with no food in front of him, and he calmly asked to be served. 

The meatballs were on a pan on one end of the kitchen, green beans in a bowl on the other side, and there was a stack of plates. 

Well now what do we do?! Ben and I looked like complete idiots. We scrambled around, trying to figure out what kind of tool to use to serve green beans. Ben didn't want to use the same tool for both, I said it didn't matter...

"OK, here. Your job is to hold the plates. That's it." Ben told me. 

"How many green beans do you want?"
"Fourteen."

I shit you not, Ben took the tongs, and one by one, placed them onto dad's plate. It was pretty innefficient, but I got a big kick out of it.

Just Ben and I being stupid was the highlight of my day.

Mind you, I stayed home from school today, so most of the day was pretty uneventful and almost lousy. 

However, I received a surprise music stand today! One of those nice solid black ones that we use in band. 

It's beautiful. No graffiti, no bent corners, nothing is stuck. It's smooth and black and crisp, and it's got that new stand smell. I just want to admire it for awhile longer before I actually use it. I've never seen a new one before. 

I wonder how idiotic I sound to people who don't play music.

Cheers, 
SWH
