Here in Orlando, our Universal parks sell “Thing” T-shirts. And it’s always the same: dad wearing Thing 1, mom wearing Thing 2, older kid wearing Thing 3, and younger kid wearing Thing 4. Just once, I’d love to see those numbers swapped around.
I’ve started commenting on the doodles again. For the most part, I don’t plan on explaining the origins of holidays – you can always Google that if you’re interested. My new rules for commentary: only say something if I have something to say, and only say something if I can say it in two minutes or less. (Commentaries used to take 15-20 minutes each to put together, which is why I stopped them.)
