☼ The little one had his first flying lesson today. I was all cocky thinking "huh, he's gonna read a book and do some tests, like driver's ed"
Except this kind of driver's ed involves a propeller and wings and ZERO EFFING PARACHUTE.
Because people, listen to me.
Dudes. He met the guy, he shook hands, he got in a metal contraption (along with the instructor and my husband) and he flew the plane to the lake and back.
I was at work so you can imagine the JFK Jr. and Buddy Holly, Jim Reeves, Otis Redding, and Ricky Nelson images I had to endure. In my head. Humming La Bamba while I tried to breathe. There is a website for my insanity also.
Anyway, he flew and he survived but I can't get back those years and years he took clean off of my life.
Please don't tell me flying is safer than driving a car. It isn't your 17 year old kid soaring over the clouds.
The instructor asked my husband if that is as excited as the little one gets (yes, he is freakishly calm)
☼ I changed the commenting so I can reply to your comments under the comment you post. You do have to actually stop back by to read the answer though. FYI.
☼ I am out of stupid, stupid and also stupid picture space so until I purchase more at $3 a month (stupid!) there will be no photos. It pains me. It used to be $5 a year. I realize that I spend that on magazines and hair products easily but if you say it, I will send you a Finn turd with fluff from his latest stuffed victim in it.
☼ I had big plans to go to bed early last night but instead, we layed (laid?) in bed and watched the entire first season of Samantha Who? which could very well replace Dead Like Me as my favorite defunct series to watch over and over again. My sister watches Gilmore Girls like it's her job, for crying out loud.
☼ I was going to use up all the hair products I had (which could very well take a while) but I read about this on a blog. I got the shampoo and conditioner too. I am not replacing Aveda, just trying something different. I think I will try the antifrizz serum next.
☼ I saw the cutest pedicure on FB yesterday. If I could post a ^#*%@#$ picture, I would. I have a gift certificate for a pedi from my husband. It is the "all the bells and whistles happy ending pedicure" I have been saving it for a special day.
☼ I discovered a new online music site called Jango. I am kind of over Pandora.
☼ I need some birthday cake and a beer to wash this day away
