I would have written a good post for today except that…
well Mr. Kaos had other plans.
You see we took K and her class on a field trip… and when that field trip was over and the kids were back in class he lured me downtown with the premise of buying K a book on space for her birthday…
He wasn’t honest though. He totally had other plans. It was 11:30 he pointed out… and he was hungry so after parking the car he had the nerve to make me walk around downtown holding his hand while we looked for a place I wanted to eat.
Can you believe the nerve?
And once we chose the place… he turned off his damn phone and only paid attention to me.
Once lunch was done I had to walk around holding his hand until we reached our destination… the Big Local Bookstore my brother works for… though he wasn’t at work. We browsed for a while until we found what we needed and then we headed out into the sun.
Let me restate that… the sunshine. In Portland. On a rainy day.
We walked toward the car only to realize that Ben and Jerry’s blocked our way… what else could we do? The man took me out for some ice cream.
By then though it was time to return to the everyday. He had an appointment. I had to pick up K from school.
I brought her home and my mom volunteered to take her up to watch a movie…
so what did I do?
Well it was the perfect day… so of course I took a nap.
good times can come on surprising days.
