Well. Here it is: The brand new day. I may spend it in a spa, getting a facial, enjoying a massage, having things waxed. Perhaps I will visit shops in downtown and not come home until I have a gift for everyone on my list safely stowed in my sleigh. This could be a baking day, or better yet: Tamale day. Tempting. Very.
I am certain that I am not prepared to make every one dress-up for a long over-due family portrait, but that day is coming. Look out V2 Family... I will be
Something inside of me is very attracted to this... to floating away with the breeze, to seeing the world below, and the blue above and beyond. Bundled up, a bit dizzy with the height, I think this would be... honestly, I think it would be cold, loud, and unnerving. But I do love watching the hot air balloons, and imagining the sensation of riding untethered.
Maybe today I will walk in the rain, get pushed around in the wind, kick some puddles.
But if you figure out that I am on the computer, posting about the progress on the robot float, or pip-pipping about life at the Bird House, or if I am doing any of the aforementioned activities, then know I am in big trouble.
There is only one thing I should be doing today: Thinking about the Christian Emperor, Constantine, and how I can send Max to school looking just like him for their ancient history pageant. Actually he is playing two emperors, but he cannot remember who the second guy is. (Rest assured fellow cast mates, Max will come through!)
Alex suggests Max wear the same "fancy toga," but when Max changes character Alex says he should: "Turn your back, apply a fake mustache, then turn dramatically and say your lines." And Alex demonstrates with his hilariously accurate theatrical Roman-Emperor voice, then he spins and speaks in a distinctly different old man, Roman-Emperor voice!
I wish I could spin dramatically and produce a fancy tunic and toga.
How about you? What are you doing this brand new day?
