Did ya miss me?
June 29, 2007
I know I was only gone for about 18 hours. But I exceeded my bandwidth and had to move up to the next plan. I guess that is what I get for being cheap.
Every month a few days before the end of the month I would start getting emails saying that I was about to exceed my bandwidth. This month it happened earlier than usual but after careful consideration, i.e. deleting the email as soon as it came in, I decided once again to just ignore it.
Yesterday afternoon I went to my blog and it was no longer there. Poof. Bandwidth exceeded.
And so I decided to spend the extra $5 and upgrade my plan.
Here I am. But not really here because I am frantically doing half done projects around my house before my house swallows me whole. I am finding myself completely drained by the albatross.
The fact the my next door neighbor insists on using manure in her flower gardens is also making me irrationally angry. IT STINKS like, well, shit. Horse shit, cow shit, I have no idea which one it is but it has the sweet pungent smell that makes me breath through my mouth rather than smell it. I am getting angry just thinking about it.
But in other news. My 6yr old son just lost his first tooth. It has been loose for quite some time. And then was hanging on by what appeared to be a single thread of gum tissue for a couple of weeks. And he refused to just yank it out. Last night right before bed he was standing close to me telling me a story when I noticed something different about his smile.
“Where did your tooth go?!?!” I exclaimed.
“What tooth?” he answered.
“The loose one right in the front that was hanging there all crooked…”
So I suggested he go look in the mirror. Yes, he had no idea it fell out.
Once I reassured him:
a) That no, the tooth fairy would not expect us to sift through his poop to find the tooth.
b) And that yes, she would leave him money if he wrote her a note explaining the situation.
c) And that no, you couldn’t lie to the tooth fairy and say that you have had ten teeth fall out and lost them all so that she will leave you way more money because the tooth fairy is all-knowing.
d)And that yes, she probably does hang out with all the other all-knowing people like Santa, the Tooth fairy, and God.
Once he knew all those things, he was happy. And dictated a note to the tooth fairy.
After all that he finally said that when he was eating some cantaloupe after dinner he felt something hard in his mouth, but thought it was the seed and swallowed it anyway.
Miracle of all miracles I remembered to do the tooth fairy and he woke up a very happy boy clutching his “golden” dollars, which he has probably already lost.
