hey. how are things? i'm currently in a hotel room all by myself with quietness and no legos and no squished blueberries to clean up and no asses to wipe and no cat vomit to mop and, well, you get the picture. it's kind of blissful, actually. oh, i'm not totally heartless. i miss my boys a lot. but don't think for a SECOND that i'm not enjoying the hell out of this little work vacation.
where to start? i think i'll ease back in with a shortish post. you know that asperger's kids aren't supposed to have much of a sense of humor? mine is one of the exceptions. i mean, he's no comedy genius, but he makes me laugh. he is gaining some confidence, and really flourishing at his new school. more on that later, but i think that's one thing that is helping with his humor.
today's song title brings to mind an exchange we had in the car the other day.
me: what were you looking at on the lego website earlier?
em: ninjago stuff. they have some cool new things on there. editor's note: NINAJAGO. holy shit.
me: like what?
em: oh, like these snake temples, and a helicopter, and a card holder. editor's note: i am paraphrasing. i have no idea what the hell any of this stuff is.
me: a card holder? you mean, like a lego holder for the ninjago cards?
em: yeah. pretty cool.
me: dude. a holder made of legos for the cards? why would you need that? can't you just hold the cards in your hands?
em: yeah, i guess you can. probably they make them for zombies with no arms, then.
words of wisdom, folks. words of wisdom.
