The best and worst of this week.
Hit: Currently hanging out with a screechy, happy baby. Abby is enjoying playing “Super Baby” over my head.
Miss: Abby just drooled in my mouth. Bullseye. A malicious pigeon couldn’t have done any better.
Miss: Had to be at school from 7:00 to 7:00 yesterday, capped off with a two hour open house to meet parents.
Hit: One of the parents told me that her son loves coming to my class.
Bigger Hit: She also told my boss.
Miss: Bit into an apple that had, without giving any outward sign, gone quite bad. It tasted like a sawdust filled sack of peelings. It also instantly sucked all the moisture out of my mouth. I’m pretty sure that my evil stepmother poisoned it, because I got really sleepy afterward.
Hit: My stepmother is anything but evil.
Miss: Had to spend all of Wednesday night alone doing work on programs that have acronyms that I can neither remember nor explain.
Hit: My wife came home and told me to go out to see Jupiter low in the night’s sky.
Bigger Hit: With a pair of binoculars, I could see three of Jupiter’s moons. That is the first time I have ever seen the moons of any planet other than my own. Told my neighbour to come out to see it.
Huge, Embarrassing Miss: Told my neighbour that the bright moon we could see was Titan. Titan is one of Saturn’s moons. I feel like such a moron. I should have been able to name off Jupiter’s major satellites: Ganymede, Io, Europa, and Callisto. Seriously, who does that? The Galilean satellites are the most well known non-planetary bodies in the solar system. I’m so dumb…
