1. Had a debate with a 12 year-old over which book was better: CATCHING FIRE or MOCKINGJAY. (I was for CF myself.) It's pretty cool to have literary discussions with kids. I might just like them better than with adults, because with kids, you get to a point in the discussion where you just have to draw your wand or your lightsaber, you know? Grown-ups don't always get that. They just want to talk things out. What gives?
2. Had take-out twice. One time burritos. One time sub sandwiches. Neither was great, but there was just no time to make food this week.
3. Acted as backstage chaperone for highschool choral show. (Actually, I haven't really done that yet. I have to do it tonight....in a few minutes to be exact. Wish me luck. I'll need it.)
4. Oh, and this:
Yes, that is a little toilet seat on the very top of the wagon. Don't ask.
The Good Knight (and his mustache) direct the wagon packing.
The annual Good Knight/Read Across America Play at my school. This year, we did the brand new story: A GOOD KNIGHT'S REST. It was really tons of fun, probably because there was lots of falling down. Except for me. I didn't fall down, though I did get a squirt gun to the face and a gigantic fluffy-puffy marshmallow stuffed in my mouth. Good times. Oh, to live in your own story, even for a moment. Sigh.
What did you do this week?
