"Deep Thoughts" with Jethro

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

- C. S. Lewis

"Cool" Doesn't Need a Reason

What do you do when you find a patch of spilled paint in the backyard?

You paint the bottoms of your shoes, of course.

It was silly of me to ask, but I couldn't stop myself:

Why are you doing that?

Because it's cool.

Duh.

It's Yin Yang All Over Again

Out for dinner the other night we were served a basket of fresh bread accompanied by a stylized dish of butter and tapenade.

Michael commented,

Hey, look, it's a Déjà Vu!

when its waves rise, you still them.

Awkward!

One of Michael's new favorite words is "awkward". However, somehow he has gotten the idea that it is synonymous with "weird".

On our recent vacation, we saw a sea hare swimming by us.

Sea Hare, off Captiva Island, FL.

Michael exclaimed,

Awkward!

The Worst Dog Sitters Ever

While watching Curtis' parents' dog, Shelby, I noticed that her face was looking a little weird.

I deduced that the spots on her face were hives.

Michael exclaimed, his voice full of concern,

We are the worst dog sitters ever!

We were able to control the hives with regular doses of childrens' liquid cherry flavored antihistamine, but they always came back as soon as the medicine wore off.

We never did figure out what was causing the hives, but they went away as soon as she went back to her own home.

I guess she was allergic to us.
