Asteroid Edition






Asteroids!  That would explain this week, if Zombie Asteroids swung by, but they had limited bandwith and a spotty connection and got kind of lost on the way.   

Kudos to Esperanza for suggesting this week's Awards Theme!

The Asteroid Explosion Award goes to Anonymous, whose son was so distraught about this thing the doctor did that he said HIS DAD HAS TO GO TO JAIL and also that DAD HAS TO APOLOGIZE FIRST!  Let's all sing the chorus:  I mean it, my feelings are hurt, you can't make me.  And Anonymous performed Mama Magic, talking through the hurt feelings + apologies tangle, as well as the limited medical exception to the private parts rule.

JenR wins the Impact Crater Award, for her series of flooring surprises in the new house:  sanding won't help this decrepit floor look any better;  whoopsie, the subfloor in the bathroom is rotten!; and all this means replacement.  Like she is made of money, so she also needs to borrow from her mom.  Gah!  (But yay, mom, for not only offering, but making it sound like the only sensible thing to do.) 

Meteoric Wisdom Award to Miranda, who observes:  "Adult" children are really something.
 Let me know if you need emergency Samoas when Lent is over!

Sue wins the  Synchronized Marital Orbit Award for this:  A "discussion" with hubby yesterday when he knew I was hurting and offered this: "You shouldn't have eaten that chocolate marshmallow heart yesterday." (Don't worry, I let him live)   We are sorry the evil headache is back; glad the next appointment is scheduled; and we kinda like your sweetie despite this one error in judgment.

Cluesticks and asteroids to the fireplacing cancer.  Hugs to Purple Kangeroo, and many good thoughts for the recovery of your loved one.

Asteroid cake-pops and/or tasty meatball "asteroids" to all!  Thanks for playing!

Join us next week, here and at the Wednesday Book Club, where Sue will host a discussion of What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.  It looks like other readers include Liz, Esperanza, PK, Sarah, and me.  Friends are welcome to join us at the book club!

ETA:   Liz, I totally left out your Frozen Tears That Leave A Book Blazing A Trail Across The Sky Award, for bringing the sobs on the bus. Gonna be a good discussion of the book next week!

Terrific awards! What great names you gave them.

I would like to remind you, however, that there is NO PRESSURE to give the awards show a theme. Remember? YOU WROTE THAT.

I know! There are NO official themes, but I need a place to start with the ceremony -- a writing prompt. And Esperanza's was perfect!

Great awards kathy a!

And I agree, my sweetie is pretty awesome.

Lovely awards, Kathy. If you still have cookies left after the hundred days of Lent have passed, I am totally sending you postage. :)

I put a post-it on the Samoas: "for Miranda, for Easter."

esperanza said...

Um...Miranda...Lent is only 40 days. Might feel like 100 without those cookies.

Can anyone doubt Miranda's sacrifice?

esperanza said...

Oh no, not what I was saying. She is a far stronger woman than I. Says the person currently trying to write a sermon on discipline.
