Kryptonite

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

To the naked eye, this is a fairly lame photo. It’s just a desk with some papers and a book on it. Plus some salami, cheese and a glass of water.

To me, this is a photo of my oldest son’s Kryptonite.

He hates to read. He hates homework. And he hates anything else that his teacher shoves in that yellow folder.

“Hate” is such a strong word. But it fits in this picture.

He hates it all.

Except for the salami, cheese and the glass of water.

The Ultimate Tribute to Gas Grill Mortality

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

This is my father’s barbecue.

It’s missing two dials (for which he uses pliers to adjust), is covered in rust and cobwebs, and singes the hair off of anyone who dares ignite it.

He refuses to let us replace it, stating that it works just as well today as it did when he first bought it.

Back in May of 1986.

Long live Frank’s grill.

Free Crab

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

I love this sign.

Every time we eat at this restaurant, I stop and look at this sign and inevitably crack up.

It makes me want to look at the person standing next to me and say, “Get IT? . . . See, because the sign reads ‘Tomorrow,’ but then if you really come BACK tomorrow, then the sign reads ‘tomorrow,’ and . . . [nervous laugh] then, of course, you never really get the crab for FREE . . .”

But I never, EVER get to say anything because my husband always grabs my hand a few seconds after I’ve stopped to read the sign and says, “Yes, hon. They GET IT. Now stop embarrassing me.”

Then, of course, he heads inside and neatly ties a bib around his neck before diving into his fish dinner.

Low Man

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Here he is as promised: High Man’s little brother.

Low man, just like his older sibling, was also trying to tell me something as my husband and I were making our way to Reno.

“You’re the only people my brother and I know who will drive four hours round trip for a hamburger and a set of tires.”

That just makes us interesting. Or really picky.

High Man

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I met this fella at a truck stop on the way to Reno.

In retrospect, I realize he was trying to tell me something, like, “Hey, woman. The tires on your truck will barely make the trip. Here’s the number of a Pep Boys in Sparks where you can get a good deal on a new set.”

Fascinating how they can speak, but the living don’t listen.

Tomorrow I’ll introduce you to his little brother.
