I’ve been taking advantage of this time off from work to fit in a parade of appointments – OB (of course), dentist, annual physical, hair stylist, brow waxer, piano tuner, locksmith, charity pickups and so forth. Most recently, I visited the eye doctor and came home with new specs.
I love my new glasses – I’m sure I’m much smarter in them. Now I probably still look like Lucy, but with Tina Fey’s glasses.
Do any of you remember Timon and Pumba, the meerkat and warthog from The Lion King? When the baby lion runs away and is recued by the duo, they convince him that he’s going to have to start eating insects instead of hunting game if he’s going to live with them. The lion reluctantly slurps down some grubs, and admits that they are “slimy, yet satisfying.”
Q-ster loves that part, and it saved me yesterday when he was looking at dinner suspiciously.
“It’s a casserole, honey.”
He noticed the sauce on the broccoli. “Ga-WOSE!” (Gross)
“You can try it later, if you want.” About ten minutes later, he was willing to take a bite of the sauce-covered broccoli.
“Slimy!” He made a face and pushed the bowl away.
I thought quickly and replied, “Yet satisfying!”
He paused. And then he ate the whole thing.
Whew. Saved by a movie.
