Double. For me, hearing things when I was little took on double meanings. When we were little my mother would say in her very heavy Brooklyn, New York accent, “Don’t look a giftoss in the mouth.” For years I never knew what that meant, until I heard “Don’t look a GIFT HORSE in the mouth.” Years later, my brothers and I were comparing things we had heard growing up. This giftoss brought lots of laughter. We laughed even harder when our youngest brother thought it was a sexual reference.

Scorched.

I figured out how to make brown rice. It’s perfect every time. I put it in a sauce pan, heat it until it starts popping. I add water and boil until it’s al dente. Perfect.

Unless…I heat it on high and walk away for something shiny, forget the rice is on HIGH and the rice burns to the pan. I run to the stove, put the pan on the carpet on the porch thinking “hot pad.” Guess what? That hot pad melted onto the bottom of the pot. All kinds of chemicals stuck to the pot. Black rice in the bottom of the pan.

I was living an I love Lucy episode. I used to watch I love Lucy when I was four. She frustrated me when she would get into trouble. I would watch wishing she wouldn’t do those crazy things she would get involved in.

Me and rice are going to pay attention to each other from now on.

Swollen is the word today.

Makes me think of feet. It’s important to me to use my own photos because of copyright. I can’t believe how many pictures of feet I have. With shoes and without.

I swelled these up a bit and boo boo’d the veins and the nails are a bit long. Just saying.

Today’s topic is guarded.

When my son was four he had a plastic dinosaur puppet from Pizza Hut. He would put that dinosaur outside of his bedroom and slam the door. That dinosaur guarded his room while he fumed. I still remember how I giggled. So cute.

This stuffed animal is the perfect good night for a father and son. The father can whale on the son as he laughs and protests. Expelling energy for a boy as he heads to bed. The good night whale.
