This weekend…

this weekend we saw Avenue Q. We thought we had tickets to the Saturday night show. Then one of us (Hockey God) freeked out and thought we had tickets to the Friday night show. This thought occurred to him right around 3 p.m. on Friday.

No, we had tickets to the 2 p.m. Saturday matinee.

the guys at the coffee shop: You’re taking the kids to Avenue Q?
me: No. I am open-minded, but not that open-minded.
them: whew.

* My mom had to rearrange her whole frickin’ weekend to watch the kids, but she didn’t bitch. That much. Because it was one hundred degrees here.

* my mom: What was it about?
me: Muppets.
Wacky Boy: Gay Muppets.
me: Some were straight.
Wacky Boy: Some were bisexual! (as if he saw the show. He didn’t. He ate waffles at Grandma’s and took a bath.)
my mom: I don’t even think I knew what “bisexual” meant ’til I was out of high school?
me: Yeah. Things are different now.
Steve: None of them were bisexual.

* no, not kidding about the heat. I melted. The kids melted. We all fought and cried (except Steve, The Man Who Will Not Break or Have a Tantrum) and it was awful until Steve said (panic in voice), “Want to go to the movies?” We saw Wall-E, which was adorable, even if it was sci-fi, masking as animation.

* Also we went to Good in the (neighbor)Hood and had sno-cones and listened to good music and it was so hot? I didn’t even want a bratwurst, which is very un-Wacky Mommy-like. (I LOVE YOU L, FOR COOKING IN ALL THAT DAMN HEAT.) (everyone, yell hi to L!) And later, we went out for Thai food.

* also, tell Zip you love her. I love you, Zip, you’re my girl.

* we had dive-in movies (with the wading pool filled up, the laptop on the picnic table, a box of truffles and a big bowl of popcorn) and watched Alvin and the Chipmunks. (It was cute, but the second half dragged.)

* we star-gazed with the kids, lying on a sheet in the backyard. It was awesome. “Now I’m not counting,” our son said (after counting 23 stars — overcast night, muggy), “now I’m just star-gazing.”

That was the best part of the weekend.



* also, we

    I used to bog but the wet, spongy ground with soil composed mainly of decayed vegetable matter really dragged me down, so instead I sewed a pair of curtains for the laundry room doors that just don’t work anymore (the doors, not the curtains) and I generally sat around in the air conditioning wondering….what the HEdoubletoothpicks is WM doing in the heat?

    Now I know, so I can rest well for work tomorrow.

    PS: HI LLLLLL! Love you ZIP. Cuz who does not need a good L and a lovely zip? Huh, who?

    We almost died at the Good in the Hood. We came left after an hour, went to friends house for more ice water, went home and almost collapsed. Ms. L. didn’t even look like she was breaking a sweat. I checked. She is heartier stock than me.

    It sounds like a wonderful weekend to me. It’s just too darn hot to star gaze here. Maybe we’ll do some winter star gazing?!

    I loved that dog of yours, Zip. I’m sorry we lost her. She and my sister’s dog were Wacky Dog’s best friends.
