Friday Fun

Today was VIP Day at the day school. Mary was VIP for her niece, and I drove our grandson back over there later in the day to see Corbin's amazing wild animal show. A good time was had by all.

I do find it telling that my 15 year-old noticed a lot of wild, erratic behavior. "Well, yeah," I said, "you get a bunch of kids all excited about visitors, pack the visitors into the school, and have kids and visitors going from room to room to see displays about different nations, complete with food. Then you put all these excited people into the gym and parade reptiles and exotic mammals among them. There's gonna be wild, erratic behavior." "But Mom," she said, "the worst were the parents. The kids were wild, yeah, but the parents were the ones who couldn't seem to control themselves."
