  • Mood:


We're having another "rant at nothing in particular" kind of day. It started when we called Mom for our weekly chat. She told us that our stepsister is currently campaigning to get a trip to Disneyland for her birthday. Of course, we're totally all for that. What we are not all for, and yet it seems to always be the case with these people, is that the plan is to go on a Saturday. Seriously? Saturday? How many thousands of times do we have to tell you never ever to go to Disneyland on a Saturday?

One time, Mom was considering taking the sisters and in-laws to Disneyland, and they were saying it would have to be on a Saturday because the in-laws don't want to take time off of work. We were so upset about it that we were willing to reimburse the in-laws for the money they'd lose by not going to work on a Friday, just so that would not go on a Saturday. For crying out loud.

On the other hand, the way so many people seem to have annual passports these days, it's possible that, Saturday being a blockout date for the more popular passes, it's actually less crowded now. We may need to ask around.

What else did I want to talk about? Oh yeah, cute Primary stories. There's a little girl who likes to come to the piano after Primary. I'm not entirely sure what her goal is, but today she kept asking, "Do you know this one? It's pretty hard." And then she'd half-heartedly press some of the keys with her knuckles. One time I think I asked her what she was playing, and she didn't answer.

Athena started teaching a Primary class today (theoretically she's supposed to teach the 8- and 9-year-olds, but in practice, today she taught (she thinks) 6- through 11-year-olds). One of the girls asked her how she got to be so smart. I would want to ask the girl, "How do you know I'm smart?" Or rather, "What makes you think I'm smart?" I wonder if it's the glasses... On the other hand, on further consideration, the question came closer to the end of class, so maybe it just means the lesson went well. (Today's lesson was on Naomi and Ruth.)

Today I'm thankful for the opportunity to go to Disneyland on weekdays, having another lovely day at church, tenors who can get away from the melody, counterpoint, and it being dinner time soon.
