2) I'm the kind of person who discovers that a bird has build a nest in my garage, and then props the garage doors open for a few weeks so the 4 little eggs can hatch into 4 little chirping babies, and fledge into little birds. Even though it's not convenient for me. ~sniff~ Our baby birds fledged this week, and I'm proud of them. They were wrens, and so darned cute. I daresay, I might miss them.
3) I'm. Not. A. Hugger. I'm trying though, I really am. There are times when a hug is what you need to give or receive and I am going to master this technique. Really. But for now, if it seems like I give the one armed knuckle bump in place of the hug, don't be offended. It's a slow process. That said, I hugged a woman friend this week. It... ok. I did alright. I think I even held back on the cringe. It's not my fault, I was overly hugged in my young life by my father's woman friend. I just think that I used up a large quota of hugs in that time, and now it seems almost too intimate. Yea, I'm the woman who will talk about my "international wax", but won't hug because it seems to personal. Ah well.
4) The last class night of Summer semester was last night. (YEAH! and there was much rejoicing). And we had to give an oral presentation (with a power point slide show) on the reproductive system (cringe). The prof assigned us all different aspects of the reproductive system to talk about. I was lucky - I had infertility caused by diseases.
Huh & Wha were no exception to this assignment, and I admit, I was a little anxious to see what they would produce. Wha actually came through with a cute little presentation on Male Puberty and Menopause, giggling at just the right place to break the tension. I would give her an A believe it or not. Huh, however, was not exactly as prepared. Instead of... you know, why don't I just give you a "race report"...
Huh stands up and says, "Miz Tanna, I'm gonna jus do this from my desk, OK? Ok. I did my report on (suchandsuch) but I didn' do none of them fancy schmancy stuff (I believe she's referring to the power point presentation)." She then proceeds to speak for about 3 minutes. At the conclusion of her, uh, presentation, she says (and this is a direct quote, I wrote it down RIGHT when she said it so I wouldn't forget it...best quote of the semester),
"It would have been bettah Miz Tannah, but I wuz under the influence when I did it."
Going to miss that girl...
