For Richard Stands
When Nick was a kid, he thought the Pledge of Allegiance went as follows: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for Richard stands, one nation under God, invisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Nixon was President at the time, and so "for Richard stands" made sense to Nick. The nation being invisible made not so much sense, but who was he to question it?
We watched the Hangover on Saturday. Actually, Nick watched it. I gave up after about 20 minutes. I just didn't think it was that funny.
WHAT is my problem? People thought the Hangover was hilarious. Other people love Will Ferrell, and I'd rather be burned with cigarettes than watch his movies. Other people laugh out loud at the Fokkers. Me, I get so irritated with Ben Stiller in those movies I want to bludgeon him.
I like comedy. I like to laugh. I want funny...but my funny doesn't seem to line up with the normal people of the world.
We Used to Talk Like Grownups
I made myself some pasta last night while Nick was watching TV. He came downstairs and saw that I had a bowl of something.
"No. Tata with broccoli."
