Weekend update

So, we promised to take the kids to the dollar store that’s next to their swim school. Or rather, was next to their swim school. Now it’s a mattress and furniture liquidation place. To make up for that, on Saturday, we went to stinky feet Burger King play place. Yeah. I know. The high life. Someone make it stop.

Those who live in big plastic bubbles shouldn’t throw cheeseburgers. Shilling for Burger King unintentional.

I bought Andrew a pair of new spring shoes since he totally blew out the original pair I bought. I. Mean. Totally. But he’s undecided. So, today I asked if they’re his or mine. Because, get this, we wear the same shoe size. I would totally wear those shoes.

I finished my short story, Speechless. It came in just under 5,000 words. Anyone want a 5,000 word YA short story in first person, present tense that manages to combine speech team, vanilla chai deodorant, and dead sexy class clowns? Yeah, I didn’t think so. (Earlier today, Bob asked if I were writing about him; given the above list, I’ll let you answer that yourselves.)

And, last, but hardly least, I think we may have spring here in Minnesota. Shhh. We don’t want to scare it away.

  1. TWRP would take it in a heartbeat… they’re actively seeking good YA.

    Just saying.

    And, my DD doesn’t like the play places anymore, much to my dismay…

  2. Yeah, enjoy BK while you can. Things change.

    Spring in Minnesota? Sure, I’ll be quiet, do nothing more than breathe warm breaths your way… hope it stays!

  3. I just inherited a pair of great nike sandal hand-me-downs from C. C has not only surpassed my shoe size, but D’s too! Can’t wait until I can inherit some of his t-shirts. 😉

    Sounds like an intriguing combination on Speechless.

    M, thanks for the suggestion. I’m not sure it’s a WRP story. I’m not sure I’m a WRP writer, for that matter. And I don’t mean that in a bad way.

    This one is a little odd and it may end up being one of those stories only I like. Wouldn’t be the first time for that.
