(Like bamboo earrings)

We went to Denver for the weekend, to see my esteemed uncle in his esteemed academic field give a big, honking talk. It was lovely to see family, and the afterparty was one of the dorkiest things I've ever attended, and I went to math grad school for christ sakes. Like a group of academicians happily playing kazoos alongside some fiddlers dorky. But who's judging.

You, right?

On the flight there, I took Hawaiian Punch to the bathroom at the front of the airplane. Tiny little room, tiny space to barely swivel, let her wash her hands, swivel to open the door and let her out. Hawaii stepped out in front of the plane, looked up at me, and said "We forgot to pull up my underpants!" 

Gentle reader, I think I pulled a muscle laughing. I backed her back up into the bathroom (why?) and pulled up her underpants. Oh, and she likes to wear two pairs. So she had one around her ankles and one mid-calf. When we came out, the collection of travellers around the aisle at the front were all laughing and chatting us up and saying friendly things. Hawaii, being three, went back and raved the story to Jammies about how great it all was. 

She heard me recount the story several times over the weekend, and I think I screwed up - I think she started to percieve that there was something embarrassing or humiliating about her role in the story. Just based on the comic timing and which parts make people chuckle. I feel a little bad about that.

School starts tomorrow and I'm behind and I hate that feeling. Should I do work tonight? I think I'll go suppress this ominous feeling in the pit of my stomach by reading in bed.

I let my son (4.5) go to the bathroom himself at our condo complex pool the other weekend. After a while I see the lifeguard at the pool entrance who takes IDs and such laugh a bit. Then kiddo's face poking around the wall, looking for me. I start to go over there, he sees me, and starts walking towards me. Waddling. Swimtrunks around ankles because he can't pull the trunks up over damp skin. It was pretty funny.
