and read lots of books!
bebe is often gone on book tours. she picks one book and then takes it around to everyone.
she likes to hear each person's interpretation of the material before forming her own opinion.
"now, here you believe that the pink elephant represents your mother's wayward tendencies, while the yellow zebra acts as your own reconciliation of those tendencies in a cleansing and forward-moving manner- am i hearing you right? very interesting. that's not the way steve saw it at all..."
"these kids are a little too happy for my tastes."
after dinner bebe stripped down to the choobs and searched for babies in one of her "baby" magazines.
"where are the tantrums?"
"the dirty diapers?"
"day long crying jags from teething, skinned knees, broken toys..."
"i don't even see a bad haircut anywhere! is all of this some kind of elaborate put-on to persuade people into thinking they need services and products that taken out of context would seem absurd, useless, and even wasteful? what the jeebus is going on!?!"
that's pretty much it, bebe. nail on the head.
"oh. alright then."
after all that, it was time for some jammies and something a little more transparent to read.
by the end of the evening, everybody was wiped out.
big thanks to steve and jodie for stopping in to hang out with us, listening to us bemoan the less fun aspects of our lives, and especially for bringing along an extra ticket to the celtics game! Thanks Guys!
