Five Questions Friday: BB

Q: How about that eclipse?
Eric: Ahh, it was amazing. More so that it went directly over our house so we had 100% totality. Never saw anything like it. And great to share it with our friends Jud & Suzanne. But I probably should have worn those glasses.

Q: What are you talking about? Jud & Suzanne brought you glasses! You didn’t wear them?
Eric: I know just kidding. You are so easy.
(side note: Thanks to Suzanne for bringing the black and white “eclipse” cookies! I have a big sweet tooth so the “heavy sweetness” was perfect for me—ha ha.)

Q: We are now done with Summer Workshops. How did it go (from your point of view)?
Eric: Oh I think they went very well. We may need to add another week next year because both groups are coming back and we will need space for others.
(We’ll see… your workshops are a lot of work!)
Q: I heard it’s not Jaxson but Coco Kitty who is the instigator. Really?
Yup we all saw it, and multiple times during all the workshops. She was taunting him by getting closer while he was sleeping and when he popped up his head she would arch her back and make her ‘noise’ while showing her teeth.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: You listening to your Dad and allowing him to get you sucked into Big Brother. You are banned from watching that next year. You tell your Dad I said so. 

Five Questions Friday: We Are Not Alone

I have not posted since… I’m not sure. Did I post early in June? I think I did a few. But I (and Eric) have good reasons. We have been busy! Plus, we’ve had a lot of out-of-town guests.

Q from my Dad: Do you like having your father-in-law here for two weeks?
Eric: Didn’t you ask me that last year? And I think I said “what am I supposed to say?… No?” Well, I can add that I don’t like when you text me on my phone to “come to your office” which is our lounge chair in front of the TV.

Q: How much longer until we have no visitors and are alone again?
Eric: I have no idea… it started in May. My parents, your uncle and aunt, cousin and her husband, our nephew Ben, your Dad, your sister then we go to Maryland and see everyone again and then your mom here… I don’t know, is anyone else coming?

Q: Well you have your two workshops coming up.
Eric: Oh yeah. I’d say it won’t be until the end of August.
What was your favorite thing we did in Nashville for our mini-mini-vacation?
The last night we were there at one of the honky-tonks and your cousin took video of me and “puppet-kiki”.
(for those who are like “what”? I was so tired and Eric wanted to dance and I said “no” so he grabbed my hands up in the air and was attempting to dance with me. My nickname is “kiki” to my nephews so Eric was calling me “puppet-kiki”.)

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: That one is easy. Me making dinner and we all sit at the table and your dad was watching tv on his phone with his headphones on! I put an end to that.

Five Questions Friday: My Phone is not in the Truck

Q: Why is there cauliflower all over the kitchen?
Eric: Because I’m making something new: fried cauliflower.

Q: Now that you found your phone in the truck, are you still insisting that you never left it there?
Eric: I’m not answering that question.

Q: I heard this today… Do you know what the oldest city in the U.S. is? By the way, Tripp got it right on his second guess.
Eric: St. Petersburg?
Oh, close. 
Eric: Wait. No. I meant St. Augustine.
Ding, ding, ding… you are correct. And I’ll give you that as your first answer so you beat Tripp. 

Q: Have you ever played dungeons and dragons?
Eric: Uhm, not really. I think I tried with friends but we couldn’t figure out how to play.
I don’t get that game at all. Just saw them playing on TV and thought maybe you knew.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: Our lawnmower breaking down. But the service center fixed it quickly so all is good now.
