Listening In. . .

Overheard in the Target dressing room:

Obnoxious Whining Child: Mooooommy, the door won’t close, it’s gonna open! Someone’s gonna come iiiiiiiin!”

Mom: “Nobody’s coming in, honey.”

Obnoxious Whining Child: *Indiscriminate and increasingly shrill whines of disbelief*

Mom: “Look, even if someone walked in, Mommy’s a kick-boxing instructor. So they’d better watch out.”

The whining stopped immediately, no further questions asked. That mom is AWESOME.

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
