Recently I had the always welcome privilege of spending some time with Sweet Girl. Following is a reconstruction of a conversation we had...to the best of my recollection.
SweetGirl: [Geekwif], did you know that I remember when I was a baby?
Geekwif: Really? Wow!!
GW: What do you remember?
SG: When I was One, I was One for 10 whole days!!
GW: Hmmm. Are you sure it wasn't for 365 days? (Okay, give me a little grace here. Just remember, I don't spend much time around kids, and in my defense, I did realize how silly that question was shortly after it escaped my mouth.)
SG: (Stunned silence, no doubt in serious wonder about the sanity of her godmother.)
GW: (After realizing the error of my ways) So, 10 whole days, huh? What happened after that?
SG: Then I was Two! And then I was Three, and then I was Four (her voice rising in excitement and pitch with each number), and then I was Five, and now I'm Six! ("Six" being nearly supersonic.)
GW: Wow!!!! (Trying to sound incredulous.) So, how long did that take?
SG: Um...(pausing as though to calculate the exact number of days this incredible act of rising ages took)...um...100 days!!
SG: No! No! Um...one million days!!!
GW: Wow!!!! That's a lot of days!!
She's just too dang cute for my own good.
I won a book! Do you know Camy yet? She is - according to her own description - "the loud Asian chick who writes loud Asian chick-lit". She's been giving away books from her abundant collection (her husband gave her an ultimatum), and I won the drawing this week! Woo hoo! I'll be receiving the book pictured here sometime soon. You can be sure it will soon end up on that list of books I'm reading over to the right on this page.
My Blogiversary and a Milestone
Blond Girl reminded me that I missed my one year "Blogiversary". Yup, I've been filling up these pages - sometime regularly and sometimes sporadically - with "figments, wonderments, acknowledgements, deducements, arguments, and [hopefully] entertainment" for over a year now. The official "blogiversary" date was June 17th.
I also missed the milestone of my 200th post, but not by much. Turns out this is my 201st post!
It seems my previous post may have implied that our puppy was home. Raspberry isn't home with us yet. She's coming home next Sunday. Woo hoo!!
