Zac has some great ideas. Saturday he came home with one. He said that when we have kids old enough to participate, he wants to do high point/low point of the day with them at the dinner table each night. This, of course, immediately led to high point/low point of our day.
I went first....on Saturday, the high point of my day was a day hanging out with Maggie and the babies. Caroline and Penelope can brighten up any day. The low point of my day happened right after I got home. Dad called me, he had a job. One of my neighbors had called him and put him on high alert. As you may have guessed by the name of my blog, I live in a trailer, in a trailer park. Mom and Dad had a renter they evicted this fall. Apparently when he moved out, not only did he leave a mess all around the trailer, but he left the doors unlocked. Some of the trailer park kids found this to be pretty fortuitous playground. They had been in and out all week. When I got there, the lights were on as was the stove...set to 500. The neighbor lady pointed them out.....I wrangled kids and promptly walked them back to their respective homes and chewed ass. If you won't watch your kids, don't be surprised when I lay down the law. And in that same right...I guess that I shouldn't be surprised that, with the exception of 1 parent, they really didn't care that their kids were at risk of falling throught a rotten trailer floor as it was burning down....or that they could be abducted at any point, by any random person driving through the park. But I said my piece. Darn trailer park.
Zac told me his high point and it cracked me up. Ya'll know he is ridiculous by this point. Zac told me this was his high point was being being able to stop on his drive and take a pee in the middle of the road. Yep, peein in the road. It went a little something like this...
"Ya know one thing I love about working in super small towns? I was driving to a job today and I super had to pee cause I drank a bunch of coffee and I just stopped and peed in the road. That never would've happened in St. Louis. In St. Louis you are never alone for a second!. Here no one is around. I could've taken a dump this morning if I wanted to." My response.."Please don't do that."
Hahaha he kills me! Seriously, who says that!
His low point I'm afraid was not nearly as amusing. I guess some guy completely blew a stop sign and Zac had to swerve to miss him...that was how his day started. Luckily with a lot of coffee and a little road everything improved. Thank God for wide open spaces!
Now I am curious, what was the high point of your day?
