I think I’ll go inside the bank from now on

Drive Up Bank Teller: Welcome to Wachovia!

Me: Hello.

Bug: (from back seat) Mama.

Me: (closing the tube and sending it whooshing back through the tube) Just a sec, Bug.

Teller: Just a deposit today?

Bug: Mama!

Me: Hold on, Bug. (to teller) Yes, just a deposit. Oh, and could we get a lollipop?

Teller: Sure. Oh, and ma’am?

Bug: MAMA!

Me: (to the teller while ignoring the yelling) Yes?

Teller: I need to send this back over to you to sign before I can give you cash back.

Me: Oh, ok.

Bug: MAMA!

Me: (signing the deposit slip) Just a sec, Bug!

Bug: MAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA

Me: (exasperated) OH MY GOD WHAT BUG.

Bug: You forgot to buckle me in!

Me: (whipping around quickly) What?

Bug: My buckle! You didn’t do it! When we left the PMO! YOU DIDN’T BUCKLE IT MAMA.

Teller: (sending tube back) Is there anything else I can help you with today Ma’am?

Me: (fumbling frantically around in back seat trying to buckle the carseat) Um, no! I’m good! Thanks! Just forgot to buckle him in, haha! First time that’s ever happened! Ever! Isn’t that right Bug?

Bug: MAMA FORGOT TO BUCKLE ME IN! MY BUCKLE WAS NOT SNAPPED!

Me: We only drove two blocks here! Silly me! Can’t believe I did that!

Bug: MAMA YOU SHOULD NOT FORGET TO BUCKLE ME IN. MAMA, DID YOU KNOW THAT. YOU SHOULD NOT. FORGET. TO. BUCKLE. ME. IN.

Teller: (giving me a look) Yes ma’am, well you have a good day now.

Me: (sighing) Thanks for the lollipop.

Must be those prune trees next door

I don’t know what’s going on with the birds around work lately, but today we went outside for playground time and were immediately under shit siege. Poop rained down from the heavens in a mighty mighty shower and coated everything in its path. The kids of course were blissfully unaware of the gruesomeness of their recess time, though they might have gotten a little bit of a clue when I yelled RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY hysterically and flung their tiny bodies under the awning. What’s worse is that see sawing and licking the slide are equally fun playground activities to them and are done with gleeful abandon. Routinely a kid would come up to me with a quizzical look on his face, shove a finger under my nose and say “Uhh?” and I’d look down to see a giant purple and white glob hovering there, taunting me with its germy birdy germiness. And while every preschool has its share of contagions, I’m not sure the parents would be very excited to see a sign on our door that said “Dear parents, no big deal, but we wanted to let you know that the PMO has had several cases of AVIAN INFLUENZA.”

I’m just guessing.

You can tell that people my age are now starting to be in positions of power in the entertainment world. First, My So Called Life comes back, then this. Can 90210 be far behind?
