This Horse

May 3, 2010

I found this little horse when I was running around the park with Seany a few weeks ago. It was early in our run, so it was before I had to focus all of my attention on trying to keep up with Sean and his long football legs.

I picked up the horse and showed it to Sean, then put it in the little internal pocket of my running shorts and forgot about it. Until the next time I wore those shorts running and he was still in that pocket.  I liked having him in there because it felt like I had someone rooting for me on my run.  Then I forgot about him again. Until…..

He was on my faucet this morning?!

Paul Quintana had been doing laundry, so maybe the horse fell out of my shorts and was in the dryer or something.  I kind of don’t want to ask him about it because I kind of like the mystery.


Rosetta Risotto

May 2, 2010

Today was Ruby’s 3rd birthday.  My mom says that she is a teenager now, and ready to have babies.  I tried to see if i could bring Murphy over to spend some time with Ruby and make the cutest dog babies (puppies) ever.  But Murphy was busy, and it seems awkward to plan these things out anyway. Like arranged marriage.

So my mom took Ruby to Petsmart, and she got a new duck, and got to visit with the other animals until she barked at a rat and my mom thought it best they leave.   Then we had birthday dinner, which included risotto, which my mom kept calling “rosetta.”

Ruby had strawberries and cheese for her birthday cake, which she ate sitting at the table. Because one of the many weirdo things about that dog is that she loves fruit.
