The rain continued for much of the weekend, during which I discovered a very disturbing development: I spend entirely too much time bitching about the weather. It’s pathetic, really. I was really excited about getting laid off in May. What a great time of year to frolic outside while poor working stiffs wither away under fluorescent lights! Instead, the weather has gone from 15 degrees below normal to 15 degrees above normal in the space of 18 hours (after setting a record for the wettest June ever). Mother Nature as ripped me off big time.
Conjuring up indoor games that don’t involve the TV has forced me to scrape the limits of my imagination, but most of it involves watching what Robert gets himself into and riffing off that. Recent activities include:
- Freestyle Cat Pummeling
- Broom Javelin
- 10-Meter Walk Backwards For No Apparent Reason
- Scribble Frenzy
- Couch Diving
- Greco-Roman Laundry Wrestling
- Synchronized Fanny Wiggle
- Cat Food Roller Hockey
- Daddy Dressage
- Umbrella Vault
- Dryer Door Slam
- Intra-Storm Puddle Dancing
If Robert ever gets a sister, I imagine I could add Daughter Polo to the list.
