This has been a weird week. Not necessarily bad, just weird. Arun has really, really been out of sorts and his schedule this week is all over the map. Furthermore, he veers wildly between his dual roles of Goofball and Ragdoll. Poor kid. I had wondered if this would happen - meaning, since he was such a late teether, if perhaps a ton of choppers wouldn't come in all at once.
In other news, he has progressed to "counting" in the teens. Once we get past single digits, he starts to say "dah DEEN". Unfortunately, I can't apply for his Genius License yet because he has also progressed into what's termed "over-generalizing" with the word "Ball". I could understand why he would declare that apples, lemons, and even the moon are "balls", but in his little book last night, he was claiming various articles of clothing were also "balls" and well, that shit just ain't right. Silly rabbit.
A note about the Cerebral Venus Book Club. Someone commented last week that she was relieved the date had changed to May 1st, on Tuesday because she is off early from work that day. I'd like to clarify a few things. I will throw up the book club post that Tuesday, then take a posting vacation and just leave THAT post up for a few days so that we can focus on the book club conversation. That way, you folks don't have to weed through the outdated drivel regarding my meaningless life. In short, if you can't jump in on the action on Tuesday, the action will still be gong on Wednesday. One of the points of this book club is that it is convenient for folks so for me to leave it going for a few days will ensure that anyone who wants to participate is actually able to do so.
Another very, very important point - just because you haven't read the book does not, I repeat, DOES NOT mean you can't join in the conversation! Quite the opposite. In my other 2 book clubs, frequently someone will not have read the book, yet they still want to come and see everyone. And they certainly don't sit there mutely without offering opinions on topics that aren't necessarily plot specific. The way I see it, the book itself is just a starting point for conversation. If you have a comment, but haven't read the book, feel free to just jump in and start off by clarifying "Hey, I couldn't read the book but.........
