I decided to wake my family up with a little music … a little heavy metal ditty called “Bang Your Head” by Twisted Sister. I’m not sure God would approve, but it put me in a good mood. And reinforced to my kids that I’m just a tiny bit crazy, which is always good for your kids to know so they’ll behave.
Eva’s sitting next to me putting pieces of granola bar into an envelope she found while tornado-ing through my desk drawer. Wonder who she’s gonna mail it to. For the next [fill in the blank] years, I have made my desk drawer a junk drawer for babies and toddlers to rifle through. Like a mini toy box, if you will.
A friend of mine once met a new neighbor and the neighbor asked her what church she goes to. My friend replies, “The Church of Lazlo.” That made me practically pee my pants. Why? Because it’s the name of an alternative radio show in Kansas City. I may be Catholic, but I like to mess with religious people for some reason. We take ourselves WAY too seriously!
