Hex bugs and girl talk

Not much joy yesterday. The day got away from me, I’m afraid.

This morning, I played Girl Talk Jenga with Gracie, which was a lot of fun despite it’s offensive (to Gracie) hue of pink. It was educational to boot. Important lessons learned:

–  Gracie’s hero is Scout because “he’s always ready to save us from something.”

Constant Vigilance

–  What bothers her most about other people is when they fail to do what they are supposed to do. This from the girl whose aversion to the laundry hamper drives her to stuff dirty clothes in strange places. Like her bookshelf.

–  The most daring person she knows is me. That was every bit as enjoyable for me to hear as you think. Also, it’s possible she needs to get out more.

–  Hex bugs and Jenga don’t mix.

Later today, I will take my girl out for dinner to celebrate her swim trials. I can’t wait to see her kick some serious water. Also, she is great company, so I’m looking forward to our “date.”

  1. I think that sounds like JOY to me. Maybe yesterday was a day of recovery for all the joy today.

    I love Jenga and had no idea it could come in such a pepto-bismolly color. I’m new to hex bugs as of this post. Thanks for including the link so I can buy them 🙂
