The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

It’s been a weird day. Our neighbors came over and asked if they could have our swing set for their kid. I get it – their kid looks longingly at it every day from two yards over and my kids are too old to play on it.

It’s a nice one though. It’s one of those wooden ones – two swings, a slide, a little clubhouse type thing with a roof and a sandbox area underneath. Matt built it when the boys were about four and two, and it’s been very well-loved.

I couldn’t really say no when she asked. Seriously? What am I hanging on to it for other than the fact that I don’t want to admit my kids are too old for it? So Matt helped the neighbor dude dissemble it and moved it two houses down. I hope the little boy loves it as much as my kids did.

In other less depressing (to me) news. Killian and Corwin and their friend Torin (who used to live where the swing set now lives) have been making a movie for Torin’s school project. It’s a violent, sword fighting version of Green Eggs and Ham.

Yeah. I don’t know either. But apparently, in this version, Sam-I-Am is willing to use all out force to get the other guy to try the eggs and ham.

So, obviously they needed green eggs. So I was explaining to them that they needed to whip the eggs to get them to scramble properly.And all three boys immediately started singing the theme from Indiana Jones.

Yep. This is where I live.

    *hugs* Awww about the swingset.

    LOL about the film! That's pretty clever.

  2. I also live where you live. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it took me three full months to emotionally accept that my eldest is going to high school next year.

    I mean, he had a swingset of his own just last week, didn't he? (Oh, wait, that was ten years ago…)

    I can see this film leading to a Broadway Musical! Is there any chance for a bit of mixing of Seussian metaphors and creating a bit part for Cindy-Lou-Who?
