a game we all can play

Aydin: "Quick, think of a word for changing your clothing that begins with 'D'."
Me: "Ooh--oh, no, that's throwing someone out a window."

Steve giggles.

Thea: "What is?"
Steve and I, in eerie geekchild sync: "Defenestration."

Aydin nods in something like amusement--or possibly horror.

Of course it took my brain another three hours to spit out "disrobe."

less "ship of fools," more "clown car of maniacs"

On Saturday I had a conversation with a gentleman who was pretty sure that he was a unicorn. And also Bruce Lee. I...yeah.

I would really like it if today was a little less with the crazy.
