Trying to enjoy the holidays
The boy went to The New York Historical Society the other day for a children’s event. I couldn’t go with him. Cause it was the last museum that Alison and I went to together.
And we drove past it every time we went to the goddamn hospital.
Me: Did you have a good time?
Him: (nods enthusiastically)
Me: Good. I’m glad. I’ll go with you someday. Just not…now.
Him: (nods enthusiastically) OK, papa!
On a more upbeat note, been trying to enjoy the holidays however I can.
Some friends came by the pad for a game night. We were supposed to play some online games but my cousin and her fella were backed up with work and had to bail so we resorted to the usual board games with the usual bunch.
We ended up playing the following:
I’d usually include some conversation from a night like this but most of it isn’t PG so just lemme say that it was a lotta fun.
Me: We need to have a podcast called: Deep Questions, with Chad Blake.
Cuba: Do it!
Blake: What? I have a lotta questions.
The last time I went to his birthday party, Alison was there with me. I had a moment right before we walked in but RE Mike was there just at that moment so that pulled me outta my head.
In fact, the Gymgirl and my friends made the night so much better than I expected it would be.
I suppose that’s the thing about good friends/souls. They make life bearable.
Gymgirl: I’m gonna ask them if they have peanut butter for you.
Me: What? Don’t do that.
Her: I’m doing it.
She asked. They didn’t. Was still touched she tried.
