Grateful

You’ll all be glad to know that Zed was on the Grateful train yesterday. He didn’t complain about me asking him to water my plants (I forgot, which is why my thumb is brown), didn’t complain about me having him fold his clothes, was grateful he got to go to basketball practice, and was grateful many times over that he got to go to the Desperado’s game last night.

He must have thanked me 10 times for taking them, and also thanked my friend Judy for getting the tickets. He watched the game pretty well, and kept an eye on the dancers too. The game had a dramatic ending, with the Desperado’s scoring a 3-point field goal with 3.3 seconds remaining in the game to pull ahead 53-51 for a win. It was pretty amazing actually, as they were down 37-14 at the half. But, in the 3rd quarter they held the opposing team scoreless, and enabled the dramatic comeback.

Elle was grateful to, but not as overt about it. She wore herself out at her brother’s practice, running around and playing. By halftime she was ready to go home, and when we couldn’t find the cotton candy vendor, she about lost it. I don’t think we saw one the whole time we were there, although we saw plenty of other people around us with cotton candy. I think they must have gone down to the first level to find it. A second helping of peanuts brought her back though, and the night was saved.

It was a late night though. We didn’t get home until almost 11. Nick was out late too, hanging out late into the night with his writing pals at Denny’s. It’s good for him though, so I don’t mind.

This weekend will be busy. Soccer games, hair appointments, bathroom drywall installation, a trip to the city dump, maybe some egg dyeing, Easter brunch with the family. It should be a blast! Have a great Easter ya’ll.

To the hag in the lane-switching, brake-slamming Acura on the Tollway last night: Nice. Real nice. Karma will get you. Just remember that.

To the speeding jerk-off crotch-rocket riders on 75 last night: I won’t feel one bit of pity for you if you have an accident. And if you cause someone else to have an accident like you almost did me, remember what I told the hag: Karma will get you.
