Summer Conversations... or, Why Reading the TV Ticker is a Great Lifeskill.

The days are passing too quickly. Summer is evaporating before my very eyes. Football starts Monday. How is this possible?

I plan on cramming every bit of summer fun into these last days of summer. Or, I might just stay home and watch movies in the air conditioning...... Let's just wait and see.

Summer has been going on long enough that I'm comfortable with my next declaration. People, I vow to you all. I declare with a loud voice. Sponge Bob stupid will not be on my TV again this summer. Amen.

I know there are 2-8 blog readers out there that like to click their feelings at the end of each post. Please, don't hide your true cartoon thoughts.

Now, on to more important summer things. Today, PrissE and I had some floating time. Seems like it's been too long since we had a good float together. I'm not talking about ice cream.

During today's float, we discussed current events with the lifeguard. Because we can people. We can discuss current events with teenagers and no one gets hurt. That's why.

Today's current event was the NFL lockout ending. I was delighted to share my current event knowledge. The conversation went a little something like this:

Me: I read today that the Cowboys have released a bunch of players to get under that new salary cap.

PrissE: I'm so impressed! You read an entire article! Was it online or in a magazine?

Me: Oh NO! It was the ticker running across the bottom of the TV while I watched Sports Center. That information is accurate.

PrissE nearly drowned from laughing so hard. Now do you see why it's so important to share your current events with the lifeguard?
