Of course, I’ve spent a great portion of the day leaving nasty, mean spirited posts on facebook,because that’s just the kind of vitriolic guy I am, but I’m not going to spend my blog on that tonight.
There were a few good, in-between moments to the day that I’ll talk about instead. We had lunch in the park. Not truly a picnic,since we didn’t spread a blanket on the ground but just sat on a bench, and we had sandwiches from Boulevard instead of bringing food from home, but we brought the rabbit with us and let her laze on the grass with her little leash on and when I was watching her, she just sat right next to a tree and when Isabel came to take over I was giving her a lesson on rabbit psychology, how they’d always look for the safest place and just stay there and as soon as Isabel took the leash she started romping around all over the lawn. Existence exists for the purpose of making fools out of parents who try to turn a picnic into a science lecture.
Then, we spent some time working on a jigsaw puzzle and, at 5 o’clock, went bowling. Bowling is like English lessons. I’ve often noticed that my once a week students, even if they take lessons from me for years, don’t really make any progress. Those who have several lessons a week, maybe for several hours a day, make very swift progress. Likewise bowling. We go once every couple of months, probably no more than 4 or 5 times a year, on average. Which means we’ll never get any better.
Then, a bit more work on the puzzle, a few more nasty comments on facebook, and here we are. Another day done, another blog written.
