Today was part one of I drive the kids shopping for their Christmas presents for one another, relatives and me while trying to keep the presents secret in their translucent bags and playing dumb in case I see what they bought me. Tomorrow we hit the quilt shop and scrapbooking store. Much more interesting.
I stopped in La Panera for snack, M got a soup bowl instead of a pastry, he loves savery things.
I decided to put the Christmas Star CD in. Ben remarked that the music felt lame without actual snow. I turned off the cd and said, “no, if it was lame, it would sound like this,” and began singing, “La-st Christmas, I gave you my-y heart, the very next day, you gave it a-way-ay.” He replied that that was either a false choice or a loaded question.
I sighed, “Why did I make you study logic?”
Ben replied, “It was recommended to you. Mom, if Susan Wise Bauer told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it?”
I’ve got to stop asking rhetorical questions.
