Ever have one of those weekends that when you think back over it, makes you laugh at all the random weirdness? Here's the first installment.
Friday night we attended a 40th birthday party for a friend of my husband. They know each other through sports and the gym, so while they speak frequently, they really don't know each other that well. At any rate, my husband bought a card and was going to take some of his home brew beer, just to be nice. Unfortunately, he never quite got around to getting that part together, and as it was a no gift event, we went with just card in hand. Which turned out to be a good thing, seeing as how they don't drink and there wasn't a drop of alcohol being served. Which is totally fine, we have no problem with that. It just made me cringe at the social awkwardness there would have been had he showed up with a big growler of beer in hand. Phew! The Godiva cheesecake made me forget about the near miss pretty quickly... absolutely chocolate heaven!!
Saturday, after a morning debacle of rescheduled baseball games being canceled again, I attended a graduation for the massage students I've taught classes to over the last year. One of the speaking teachers went around the room and asked the families of these students to comment on the changes they'd seen in their family member-student over the year. Basically it was an opportunity for the families to say they were proud, etc. Many of them had been practice bodies over the year and commented on the improvement in skills.
Three quarters of the way through the room, the father of one of the twenty-something students says, in a booming voice, "Well, *Amy's never given me a massage, and she likely never will. It's just a personal thing for me." Awkward silence filled the room as everyone digested this totally unnecessary comment before he went on to say he was glad she found something to "stick with". I might add, she was valedictorian, and is exceptionally brilliant. Just sayin'.
While at the graduation, one of the other teachers was there with her three week old baby, that I got to hold and snuggle for a good solid twenty minutes before she was scooped up by someone else. Baby love!!! Itty bitty fingers and toes and lips and nose!!! However, I overheard the mom telling a couple of other teachers that they go diaperless at home because she is using the Infant Potty Training method. I wish her well.
Hope your weekend was good. Or at least entertaining. I have more happenings coming tomorrow. It was a full weekend...
