• Conversations with Tracy & Jami

    Me: I need to put the trash cans out but I don’t want to go potatoes.
    Jami: I hate it when I go potatoes!
    Tracy: Sometimes I grow roots and just sit there quietly judging people in my potatoes glory.
    Jami: I am couch-potato-ing as we speak!

  • Conversations with John

    John: I’m calling the ASPCA.
    Me: You probably should. My new puppy was popular at uke club tonight. I spent half the time not playing because everyone else wanted a turn on her.
    John: I’m glad I have context because that sounded terrible without it!

  • Conversations with Mattie

    After practicing my ukelele for a while this evening, Mattie made this declaration:

    Great. Now I have the tune you were playing stuck in my head.

    Suck it up buttercup… I didn’t say it but I sure thought it! Kinda makes me feel good to know my playing is catchy on some level though, so thanks for the sideways complement, honey!


    I made some truly awful squalling noises on the violin.

    Me: Listen! Its a dying cat!
    Mattie: I get it. You can make noise. Please stop.

    He has no sense of adventure. I’m super excited for my first violin lesson tomorrow afternoon!
