Not Too Bad.

I don’t think it’s raining right now since I have my headphones on. I went outside earlier after my mom washed out the hairspray and other crap that Katie put in my hair yesterday. After my mom washed my hair I went outside to play with Bootsie. She is a stray kitten that my sister has welcomed to our back porch. She’s so cute and yet very jumpy still. Loves me not so that’s a plus.

While I was outside I was hoping for two things that I wouldn’t see a snake, I am always afraid to see one since that one time my mom and sister found one in the backyard one summer. Not cool. The second thing was I didn’t want it to start pouring. My wheelchair doesn’t work well with rain. So I think I stayed out there for maybe 20 minutes. If I could I want to sit on the porch at her level so she can really rub up against me like she does with my mom and sister.

Even though being outside was good. Not back inside its kind of dull. I think I’ve learned something the first few pages from Denise Richards book The Real Girl Next Door. That even though you might have a bad day, somewhere in that day something was good. That is actually true and I love knowing it now. Today hasn’t been too bad, even though there’s no sun out. I’ve read and apparently my mom got me a movie to watch. I Am Number Four. Yep, not bad.

Interesting Facts and My Feelings Towards Them.

  1. 27% of U.S. male college students believe life is “A meaningless existential hell.” (That’s actually kind of funny!}
  2. A dragonfly has a lifespan of 24 hours. (Thats just sad!)
  3. A giraffe can go without water longer than a camel can. (Why is this the first time I’ve heard this?!”
  4. A monkey was once tried and convicted for smoking a cigarette in South Bend, Indiana. (Only in Indiana!)
  5. According to a British law passed in 1845, attempting to commit suicide was a capital offense. Offenders could be hanged for trying. (Well thats stupid!)
  6. An average person laughs about 15 times a day. (Ha! Obviously somebody has never seen our lunches at my nana’s!)
  7. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying. (Everybody will be using this now.)
  8. If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes. (This is actually very clever to remember now.)
  9. In 1980, a Las Vegas hospital suspended workers for betting on when patients would die. (Oh my god! Thats funny, sad but funny.)
  10. It’s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. (Don’t try this at home!) Obviously whoever wrote doesn’t have a good sense of humor.

Welcome Back

Today was an interesting day. I expected a regular day of going to nana’s after my hair appointment and having a nice chat and my mom and sister do her errands for her and afterwards eat lunch and go home after an hour or so. Oh, not today. After my hair cut, we went to nana’s and my Uncle David was there. I haven’t seen him since he and my aunt moved up to Indy and today I knew we were in for it. I was more than ready for it too.

My Uncle David is a little crazy, but yet my entire family is that way so why shouldn’t he be any different? Wheneve he’s around he always has stories to tell. Has a little bit of my papaw already. He’s gonna have a cow if he finds out I said that, but oh well. We had ALOT of conversations today. One part, however I think needed to be left out of it completely because everytime mom and David would go out for their smoke breaks that subject would make its way back into the conversation. One minute it would be about roads and traffic and the next it would be about something racy.

We have an inside joke with our family. Alcohol makes you drunk, right? Well we apparently don’t need alcohol. All we need are RC’s and we’re gone. We get into these different conversations and just start shouting and laughing all over the place and you can’t calm us down. It’s not smart of us to be outside after a few drinks of RC either. Not unless we really want to see us at our loudest. That kitchen, if the walls could talk, hell if there’s a ghost in that house (better not be!) they’d tell you ALL about our stories. I’ve missed these I’m not kidding you. I hope to do this again. Even though I don’t know if my stomach can take it all again, but I would do it again.
