Man: So anyway I’m really tired because I couldn’t fall asleep all night.
College student: Why not?
Woman: You shouldn’t take hot baths at night.
Man: Well, you did, and you slept fine.
College student: What bath did you take?
Man: Your mom’s leftover bath. The one you gave her.
College student: That was Invigorating! No wonder.
College student: Yours is Relaxing.
Man: Thanks for the warning.
Man: I was in the tub for hours.
Man: Reading a fat book.
Man: Do they have bath things for, like, Charismatic?
We went somewhere and did something.
I remember now: Somewhere = this new park thing. Something = rowed around in a boat, crashing a lot because the waterway was too narrow for a rowboat.
When we got home I took off my hat. I had hat hair so I did the mussing-up thing.
Gamma said this: “Dad! Now I know why people say you look like George Clooney!* You totally looked like him there for a second.”
I said, “huh?” and tried to flatten my hair back down.
“Put your hat back on and take it off again,” she suggested. “See?” she said.
Maybe I should have Beta get me a George Clooney bath thing.
If they have them.
The girls had a recital the other day.
Gamma sat on my lap for a while. When she got up to run around again, my suit glittered for a long time.
*In fact, I am the only one who says this. The programming seems to have worked on Gamma, to the extent that she thinks people say I look like GC, not that I actually look like him. She says he is an ugly old guy and I am better looking.
This reminds me of similar things my dad used to say. Funny how silly stuff moves through the generations.
