1. Headphones are heartier than they seem.
To my delight, I turns out that you actually can machine wash your iPhone headphones - with a double rinse, no less - and they will still work.
Also, having nothing to do with headphones, I've been considering making my own laundry soap. I know I don't have lots of time, but it looks pretty easy. Is this ridiculous?
2. Butter is delicious.
You know how you remember that things tasted better in childhood? It's because they did. I cook Jordan's eggs in butter. I slather butter on his toast. Until recently he was drinking whole milk. Put on weight! Grow, grow!
And then you get older and more moderate/insanely restrictive about your fat intake. All that fat just tastes good.
3. Nick will never, ever relent on the office koi pond.
Which is too bad, because it's ever more inviting. It's not even the heat of summer. It just looks so smooth and cool and delightful.
4. Jordan's favorite color is pink. Really.
I got to his daycare yesterday and they were all running around with sheer scarves, waving them to "Let's Go Fly a Kite." Jordan didn't know I was there, and so I watched silently. He had a green scarf, and he said to the teacher, "I need yours. It's my favorite color."
"What's your favorite color?"
I relayed this to Nick, who got a look on his face and asked, "What color was the scarf?"
"Pink." I was all ready to accuse him of being sexist...when he said, "Oh, good. I was worried it was blue and he didn't know the difference."
5. Any smidgen of ability I ever had to maintain a poker face has gone out the window.
Apparently it's abundantly clear to everyone that I have no tolerance for much of anything anymore.
