I had something all worked up in my head for today.  I had a big sweeping, heartfelt piece about baseball and  boys, poetry and dreams, but... (I'm whispering) she keeps staring at me.

I'm not really sure who she is, I think she might be one of those new pop stars I can't keep up with, I mean she looks as surreal as Lady GaGa.  'aLisuBath' could definitely be the name of a pop star or band.  Maybe she raps.

No, I don't think that's it, N did this and he's got some curious friends so maybe I should take a closer look here.  I thinks she is outside, that's a swirly-sun there setting down behind the house.  I am not really sure what that is on the peak of the roof, but upon closer inspection, it's a bird.  Yes definitely a bird... or a spider.  She clearly just got that perm she'd been so hoping for and she has a bow in her hair, or a bat who's friends with the spider/bird.

She's happy, or is she sinister?  Frankly, she's starting to freak me out.  I mean what the hell does she have on, is that a checkered house coat over yoga pants with Baby Janes that tie?  Who wears that out?

And why, dear God, is she levitating?

Oh!  I remember who she is, she went out with Tana, N's imaginary friend which is weird because Tana is already married to Aly,  Z's imaginary friend.  Or is it the other way around.  Anyhow, I guess it didn't work out because I found this picture abandoned in the pile of retired huggy people.  I'm glad, she didn't seem right for  Tana who, I thought was a girl.  No that's not right...  Maybe aLisuBath was on a date with a teddy bear named Pinkie, yeah... now I remember...

I need a life.

From Marci's '...things you don't expect to hear from the backseat...'

Dad:  "You guys have lost five socks this week"
Zack  "Pretty impressive."

He really was impressed.


  1. Maybe this is an Elizabeth..? I know we had quite a challenge in our house learning to spell that one!

    I'm with Zack being impressed about the quantity of lost socks. I'm blaming the dryer.

  2. I have tears in my eyes laughing, Bill. You really have a gift.. glad you started this!
