Thing clock smell gift shut class sticky skip spent swing.
Those are the vocab words for this week.
In case you were wondering.
Happy Senior Citizens Day!
This has been my favorite coffee cup in the world ever since I was a little, tiny baby boy.
I was an old man even then.
I mean I thought it was hilarious to be drinking out of this cup every day for breakfast.
Because I obviously wasn’t a grandma.
And if you believed the cup then you were an idiot.
If that’s not an old man joke, I don’t know what is.
Speaking of really great jokes, I heard one the other day.
How does a man on the moon cut his hair?
So good, right?
It kills me every time.
(wipes tears of laughter from eyes)
Yesterday was a real scorcher.
I mowed the front and side yards as early as I could after my check-up.
It wasn’t early enough to beat the heat.
I would’ve had to mow it five months ago if I wanted to accomplish that.
I finished mowing around 1pm.
At which point the heat index was 114 degrees Fahrenheit.
Fuck. A. Bunch. Of. That.
I was a good boy and rested periodically as I mowed.
And drank plenty (2.5L) of water and electrolytes whenever I rested.
After I stopped mowing, I cooled down and ate some lunch before heading back to work.
I wrapped work in time to read a little bit before feeding the kiddos and heading off to Aldis’s baseball game. Another two and half hours in the heat.
But he caught the winning out of what turned out to be quite the nailbiter, so all the sweating on uncomfortable bleachers was totally worth it.
I’m super proud of the little dude.
The whole team was struggling a little because of the heat and the fact that they had to play a game in it after being at school all day. They were knackered, but they didn’t give up.
When he caught that fly ball the stands exploded with cheers and the team rushed the field and hoisted him into the air.
It was some real movie type shit.
It was awesome.
I mean if he hadn’t caught it, the other team would’ve won.
It was really that intense.
Then it was back home to shower and get to fucking bed.
We were all worn the fuck out.
Today is Wednesday.
You wanna know what’s really awesome about today?
I get to buy comics.
I didn’t make it to the shop last week.
So I have two weeks worth of treasures waiting on me.
I’m so freaking stoked.
Like buy you a Heinie stoked.
I have a bunch of other errands to run too.
Before and after comics.
I should go make more coffee.
I’m gonna need it today.
See ya’ tomorrow.
More soon. ~SC
