The drugs I am taking are ironic. No, not the Alanis Morrissette Unfortunate, Maybe Sad, Yet Not Truly Ironic Kind of drugs. No, these drugs are Moronically Ironic. They are suppressing my appetite, so I should take them with food, but Hey! I am not hungry so I take them on an empty stomach, then I feel sick which does not make me feel like eating much. Rinse, repeat. Our local Girl Scout delivered our single box of Thin Mints yesterday and an entire sleeve is laying around on the kitchen counter. I am sure it is in a state of shock since I suspect sleeves of Thin Mints do not see the outside of their boxes for extended periods of time.
Anyway, after these weeks of being a bit housebound, Kansas City is staring down the barrel of an entire week's worth of weather which will break the 40 degree boundary. In that vein, I have planned a week's worth of outside activities for us.
Yesterday, seemed like a perfect day to head out to the Ernie Miller Nature center. Team Chaos agreed:
Excitedly, they posed outside of the center, jabbering about the owls! snakes! turtles! and fish! waiting inside. As we approached the door, warning bells flashed in my brain as I saw a special signs posted to the door. Despite my careful perusal of the nature center's website, they were closed for Martin Luther King day. Bastards. Why could they have not put that up on their website? Crap.
Many tears flowed. Big, huge, tears. They were distraught, heartbroken. The owls! The owls!
I managed to get them going on nearby path.
Today, we are headed to the zoo, which I am positive is open.
