Have you ever been to the zoo? You know that smell of large animal poop that seems to hit you periodically as you walk around? I never know exactly which animal it comes from, so I always associate the smell with the elephants. While at the grocery store today there was a huge man and an older lady, who I assume was his mom, shopping together. Each and every time we got anywhere near them, I was practically overpowered by that exact same smell. As in, yes, they smelled like elephant poop.
Please, dear friends, if my personal hygiene ever begins to lag so much that I start to smell like elephant poop, love me enough to tell me. Write me a note, buy me some Dial, tell me straight to my face, I don't care...just don't let me walk around like that!
Conversations with a four-year-old while at the store: "Mommy, could God turn Reilly into a banana but give her a human voice?"
We did a mock tournament at karate last night, which was fun. I participated, even though I don't have any plans to compete in tournaments anytime soon, and had a really good time. But BOY was I nervous! We had to do a Kata in front of the three instructors and everyone else (there are probably...30 students at least, most of whom I attend church with!) but I figure, hey, if I can't do it in front of my friends, then I'll never be able to go and actually compete! They scored me with a 7, a 7.5, and an 8 (out of 10) which I thought was pretty good, considering I've never done it before.
Oh, and I got to spar, too! Yeah, I hit people! Can you IMAGINE?! I know, the mind boggles!
I never realized how much I love malted milk balls until I got some to put in The Kids Easter baskets and now they're gone and I want MORE!
Yeah, it's still not spring yet. Today it is 45 degrees and raining. It's getting depressing. I'm wanting to eat chili, for heaven's sake, and chili's a WINTER food! (Troy would disagree, but, hey, I make the shopping list around here!)
