Um, flowers. LOLOL. There are so many!
The rest is a missing persons' prob for county law enforcement, srsly bc on the parenting front, all I ever say lately is, "I hope when you look back, you don't feel too bad abt all the time you wasted & goodwill you burned up for no reason."
Speaking of declarations & police activity, Amtrak is running the Northeast Corridor again. I told Sloane, in the interest of conjugal disaster-preparedness of my expectations in case of disaster: Don't call me. You would probably be busy & that would be my presumption.
I mean srsly. Like I want a cell-phone call from a disaster scene.
HONEY? HI, I'M OK! I LOVE YOU. I SAID, 'I LOVE YOU!' WHAT? I CANT HEAR YOU, THE HELICOPTERS. HONEY? OH, RECEPTION, LET ME GET AROUND THIS PREGNANT WOMAN HANGING FROM THE LUGGAGE RACK. OK, HOW'S THAT, CAN YOU HEAR ME? YAH, I'M OK, HONEY. I LOVE YOU.
Srsly, no one make that fucking call to me omg bc first of all, I'm the last to know anything, so you'd be explaining for 10mins straight & second, I'm fine waiting until things have been assessed by a person not suffering from a major shock.
The exception is if something needs to be in the public record, like the guy who called his wife from Flight [whichever] to tell her Hey, we're going in with hammers! Or whatever.
"But in that case," I told him, "you'd better be sure to seize control of the phone call immediately."
"Oh, I've already ... I know." He had the amused-in-resignation tone of a guy well on the road in his twentieth year of wedded bliss, "I've worked it out."
That iris in the foreground is the Mme Chereau iris, planted for Iris. It's fun to say, Oh, it's the Iris-iris, not least of which is bc is how I would call for her ("Iris-Iris!"), my cat who would come when called.
In the front of the rear vase is the first of my first peony harvest (the Karl Rosenfield) finally omg bc such a hard time getting them to even shoot, peonies (user error) & now, at last, flowering, just on time for my birthday, birthday flower.
It's a holiday weekend! Two here! I hope our son returns in time to travel with us but we'll have along every Eliott Smith CD to remind us of him LOLOL xoxox
