Human Highlights: Pantless, Slimy, Golf

Human Highlights is a Sunday tradition at Commode To Joy. It’s a friendly reminder to forgive your human moments, celebrate the highlights, and enjoy life’s little lovelies in the interim.

……………………………………………….

Human Moment: We have a lot of windows at our house. So many that I resigned to wearing pants regularly, because you never know who might turn up when.

Earlier in the week, it was late enough in Miller’s nap that before I started the shower I ran upstairs to check the monitor…with my pants around my ankles and a full moon in back.

At the top of the stairs I have a clear shot of the front door. As I cleared the landing, I noted two things simultaneously: A truck was parked in our drive, and a man was getting out of it.

I squatted mid stride and hiked up my britches. When I stood, the man spotted me and waved.

I’m telling myself that he was still getting out of his truck and looking elsewhere when I emerged from the bedroom. I’m telling myself that I was moving quickly and a bit of a blur. I’m telling myself that even if he was looking the island was blocking the “view”.

Right? Right?!

Highlight: Miller and I saw a commercial for Elmer’s glue slime. He wanted to make it, so I bought the ingredients. He had more fun counting and mixing ingredients; I had more fun playing with it.

If you’re interested, here’s the recipe for a single batch:

  • 4oz Elmer’s Glue (white not clear)
  • add 1-1/2 tsp baking soda, stir
  • add food coloring (and/or glitter), stir
  • add 1TBSP contact lens solution, stir

Life’s Little Lovelies: Couples Golf 2017 has commenced. Thanks to high handicaps and a few surprise clutch shots, we came in second place.

Shoutout to Regan for showing up – on her due date! – and playing all nine holes. Turns out golfing doesn’t induce labor.
