Gordon: Hey, come outside. Bring the phone.
They hung out in the front yard for hours. We were fifteen feet away.

We are all a bit stressed out right now for certain reasons, and I walked into the kitchen to find Kid 1 particularly freaked out looking.
Kid 1: I had coffee in my favorite Frenchie mug half an hour ago. I left it on the table with some coffee in it, came back, and it’s gone. So I started looking for it, opened the dishwasher, and found it in there. It was clean and dry. The dishwasher takes three hours. So I stood there and thought, “Well, I took my anxiety medication last night, and it can technically cause hallucinations.”
Kid 1: And then I looked in the sink, and apparently we have two Frenchie mugs and I must’ve put mine in the sink and forgot. I was so relieved, I can’t even explain it.
I have knitted two 1/2 scarves and froged both of them, because I hated them. Knitting is a stress relief for me, so I desperately need a simple but not too simple pattern that would use approximately one skein of yarn and could be finished in reasonable manner while watching TV.
I’ve tried this scarf shawl thing called Clapo-Ktus, and nothing against it, I thought it was pretty, but it’s mostly purling. Somehow I must’ve developed uncontrollable rage against purling. We are to this point now. Purling makes me hurl. At some point, I threw it down, said “Fuck this,” and walked away. The dogs were scandalized.
Watched a really touching documentary on Netflix about Walter Mercado. If you get a chance, it’s poignant and a little sad, but mostly it will make you feel loved.
The latest episode of Ryder is a bit cliffhangery. Do you want it today, knowing that the next one won’t come out until Tuesday at the earliest, or do you want it on Monday?
Speaking of Ryder
Gordon: Are you okay?
Me: Ryder is #44 on Kindle.
Gordon: Like 44 hundred?
Me: No, 44.
Gordon: Great, not only do we have to finish now but it also has to not suck.
Here is to not sucking.
