My favorite time of year …. and I bought my pumpkins today.
I tell myself that one day my daughter’s traits will serve her well as the head of a company – or even maybe a small banana republic.
But for now, her skills are just massively impeding my ability to parent.
She really detested corporate euphemism.
Every time she heard senior management talk about “transformation,” she felt sick.
They made it sound like everyone was going to come out as beautiful butterflies on the other side of it, but she knew well enough that it just meant a bunch of them would be fired.
It seemed that the fewer the items on her “to do” list, the less capable she was of finding time to accomplish them.
she wanted to be grateful, but somehow she kept sliding into tepid apathy.
Needless to say, the dog has more instagram followers than I …..
They said animals might behave strangely on the day of the total eclipse.
But truly – we couldn’t tell whether the dog was affected at all by the eclipse …. because acting strangely was sort of her ‘thing.’
At least she was awake for the event, which gave her a slight edge over the teenagers in the house.
