Thank goodness I'm a grownup now, where the only April Fool's
jokes are attempts by my kids, namely my daughter. Lauren
tried to tape a "Kick me! Not!" sign on my back during an unscheduled hug, thinking I wouldn't notice (Ha! Still taller! I could see her holding it behind her back). I suspect the "Poke me! Not!" didn't last long on my husband's jacket. Though the "Pet Me 'Cuz I'm Cute!" sign on the cat is probably still there. :0
Lauren's basketball team won their championship game. The first quarter was 0-0, with the other team being warned twice for illegal (3-on-1) defense and then given a technical foul. They finally got the message, and our star players were able to score.
Went to Coldstone
afterwards, where I tried their ice-cream for the first time. Huh. I like the mix-ins, but the ice-cream is kind of weird. Too sticky, and much too sweet. Yick.
Finished watching Big Eden
, which I highly recommend to just about everyone. There was a lot to love about that movie ( Collapse )
We also saw Stop-Loss
, which has a dumb name (marketing-wise), but which was much
better than I expected (and the name is the fundamental aspect of the story, once you find out what it means). ( Collapse )
