Because I feel bad about my grumpiness, I would like to propose a new Sack Lunch tradition --
My Treat to share:
The Indian word for elk is "Wapiti."
In English, Wapiti means "white rump."
In the summer, both my boys are renamed
Can you guess why?
I took a picture of them running around in their swimming suits. I was trying to discretely hint at the difference between their bronzed backs and their little wapitis.
And that is my Treat for today. Some of you might think skin cancer, but I think that kids running around all summer long, in their swimming suits, is the best part of being a kid. And what summer used to be. Good, good stuff -- Wapiti. Think about it.
Oh, and one more thing -- homemade (or friend-made) Strawberry Jam. There really is nothing better than a couple of bottles of that appearing magically in your fridge! (thank you!)
Now, what's yours? Come on, please don't be shy! It's ok to de-lurk, even! This is a safe blog, where everyone is welcome. Share! Please!!! Even if it is the carob chip cookies your mom made (when you were secretly wishing for real chocolate chips!) I promise I won't think your idea is stupid, and I will never laugh at you. Ever.
(And just so you know, my 100th post is coming up. Soon. There might be a prize involved. And it might, just might, in some Random Integer kind of way, be tied somehow to this post. So . . . if you're interested . . . it's something to keep in mind, 'cause some of you felt a little bad the last time I had a contest . . . )
