I was going to write all about how I went to the Ducks game last night and how I know absolutely nothing about hockey but really like going to games because it's so action packed and fast paced and really cool to watch and the fans are CRAZY. And then I was going to write about how I got to have lunch with Gloria today and how it's nice to have friends who have known you so long -- long enough to remember those days of really bad hair and still want to spend time with you. (Happy birthday Tammy & Gloria!).
But all those things got pushed to the side of my brain because Ben the Blessed Nephew, the Golden Child, Heir to the Knecht Family Silver and Part Time Winston Churchill Impersonator has returned from his sojourn in the Frozen Tundra. And he brought his mom Stacy with him. There are few people funnier than Stacy. It's a good thing she made it into our family. She'd be wasted anywhere else. We spent the evening watching Ben do amazing things like crawl and drool and gnaw on the doggie bed. He's a genius.
