I think we have a theme going this week; but, frankly, I am way too buzzed on Snickers and Coke to even care. Both teens are out this evening at a corn maze event, which means that I can sit around and knit without feeling frumpy. I can also rummage through all the Halloween candy without having to share.
Not enough people handed out Twix this year. There was a paucity of Almond Joys, also. What is this world coming to?
Anna almost didn't go tonight, as there was a last-minute wardrobe crisis. She tried to pull me into it, but I just looked at her and said, "You look dressed to me." That was the last I heard of it. So, why didn't I think of that line 2 years ago?
Larry and I made Theo get a haircut today. I could see him thinking, "One more year...just one more year..." It's rough having people care about how you look. I swear, that kid will never get his hair cut again once he leaves home. I've been trying to get him to apply to a military-type academy, just to make sure he visits a barber while he is in college.
So! How 'bout that election, huh? I don't know what I will do with my time now that it's all over. I mean, I don't have to check the news sites and the poll data every hour anymore. I keep explaining to the teens that normally elections are not this exciting (or amusing). But, of course, they don't believe me. After all, old people don't know anything. It's a wonder we can even manage to survive.
