I woke up this morning thinking about how much I like the word and. It suggests more. That which is not yet but will be. Hope. Changing seasons and Christmas morning and Jubilee and . . .
Yesterday Jacob walked into the room and I said, “Yo, Home-slice.” He responded, “Yo, home-skillet.” This is the part where you admit you’re jealous of our hip lingo skillzz. Fo’ shizzle.
Right now Jacob is watching the movie, The Gospel of John, and he’s making me laugh. Not that the movie is funny. For a contemporary Bible movie, it’s amazingly well produced, accurate, and provocative. No, I’m laughing because Jacob keeps opening a card he got for his birthday. It’s one of those cards that plays music when you open it, and this one plays the theme song from The Three Stooges. It’s just not quite the soundtrack you’d expect for the story playing out on the screen.
Speaking of screens (lame segue, but oh well), if you haven’t yet, you should visit Grace and Curtis’ wedding website at TheRomjues.com. They’ve posted stories, photos, and other fun info. Just try to ignore the sad lack of hip lingo skillzz.
And now for a glimpse at what I learned from mixed nuts: It’s really okay that we don’t always agree on everything, because that way I get all the cashews.
So, tell me. What’s in your “and”?
