Hobo Law #42: When in doubt, act like a dork! Apparently its very disarming
If you’ve never checked out Fluid Pudding, give it a go. Its hosted by 5 different blogging friends, but it was originally just Angela. Now she’s the Monday person and normally I don’t like “Mommy” blogs, but she doesn’t exactly….fit the stereotype. Here’s an exerpt:
Scene: Thanksgiving morning. MC [Angela’s 6 year old] and I [Angela] are having one of those precious moments in which we cook together. We are making an apple salad and pretending that it is for our fabulous new restaurant.
Me: So, who will come to our restaurant?
MC: Mombo and Baba. Spongebob. Daddy. Aunt Boogie.
Me: I hope they like apple salad!
MC: I know what we can call our restaurant!!!
Me: What should we call it?
MC: Fuck a Duck’s.
Me: Okay. But know that we shall never speak of it by name. At least not in front of The Others.
Its too bad I don’t have her old archives before she converted it to a group site. She made them into a book! From my memory…
MC: [3 years old, spoken through the baby monitor at 3am] *whispered* Mom! Moooooooooom! There’s something wrong…..there’s something wrong with my butt.
Personal Note: 10 min jog + 35 min on arms & legs vs fettucine alfredo, cookie dough
