Laura had to have two baby teeth pulled this morning. The details are neither relevant to this post nor interesting, so will not be forthcoming. But after the giant wads of gauze in her mouth were no longer needed, Laura said, “The only thing that would turn this into a better day is if Henry could sleep over.” So I called Henry’s mum, Trish, and voila! Henry is here. (By the way, just to connect the dots, Henry is Jamie’s brother.)
The sleepover started around 3 PM with homemade slushies. I made the slushies with the new shaved ice maker that I got today at Target. After two solid hours of Wii Dance Dance Revolution, Henry and Laura decided to play the new Wii American Idol game that I also bought today at Target. (Insider’s trading tip: Buy stock today in TGT – Target Corporation.) Why such purchases? It is summer! Every day is a play day! I was feeling frivolous! I was feeling fun! I was feeling frolicsome! Perhaps a bit of nitrous oxide leaked from Laura’s mask! Anyway, working as a team, Laura and Henry opened the package and hooked up Laura’s new Wii American Idol game.
Laura: “Oh, look, it only has one microphone.”
Henry: “What about the High School Musical microphone?”
L: “Hey, you’ve got a point there.”
H: “If it doesn’t work we’ll share the American Idol microphone.”
L: “It might work. Let’s give it a try.”
H: “Can I use those scissors?”
L [opening the microphone package]: “I’m kind of busy with them just now.”
H: “Don’t cut the green wire.”
L: “I won’t”
H: “If you cut it, it’ll explode. Usually.”
L: “I didn’t cut it.”
H: “If it exploded, you’d blow up. Your face would be disfigured. Horribly disfigured. For life.”
L: “Well, then, I’d have surgery.”
H: “Yes. You’d have to have surgery. Or you’d be doomed. For life.”
See why I totally heart Henry and Trish?

Now available in my freezer, slushies sweetened with unfiltered, organic apple juice. Maybe I should have bought the chemically sweetened blue and red syrup.
See how I totally blow at photography? But I didn’t cut the green wire.
