we went out for brekkie, then to a local zoo today that has a new budgie aviary,and had a great time. then dw in the spirit of things, went to get her talons sharpened and painted
, so i cooked while i treated the boy to his first viewing of mister rodgers "on demand", followed by old lawrence welk episodes. he was mesmerised by melodic, pastel banality long enough for me to cook dinner.
<<<singing "beautiful day in the neighborhood"...>>>>
the kid is so caucasian it's almost sickening.
i keep telling him he was born a poor black child, but he tells me that's improper, and i forgot the comma between poor and black (made ya look).
so, while muzak filled the house, i made broiled buffalo chicken wings, baked spuds since i had the oven going, and garlic sauteed spinach from the garden. i was amazed that an entire 12 foot row of spinach barely made enough for one meal when wilted down.
it was an odd meal. the boy didn't really go for the wings, so dw made him dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets. i tried to go the "winged creatures like birds are the evolution of dinosaurs" route, but all i got was stares..
apparently, dinner shouldn't always include a lesson.
