'The pattern is full, Kenneth.'

This was a week of overlooked and unexpected things, not the least of which was how all of us have undervalued the utility of Rebecca Black’s single as it relates to teaching the order of the days for those learning English as a second language. It was also the week where once again we learned why mommie bloggers rarely continue on after their children reach school age. This past Thursday (i.e. yesterday was Thursday, Thursday, oo-ooh-ooh, hoo yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah-ah-ah) the point was driven home again. While it might pithy and amusing for a mommie blogger to run out a few hundred words on why Lil’ Iodine won’t poop, it’s something else entirely when Dr. Random walks through the door and announces, “I got on the waiting list for potassium iodide at the vitamin store!”

YMMV.

Therefore it’s little wonder why I have to distract the boy with things like this.

Not that it’s an easy path to take.

Imagine how I felt when he asked, “I don’t get Norman Mailer, do you?”

You’re free to take that on one and if time permits next week I’ll talk about how everybody hates Mom.

    Not getting Mailer might be not getting war, and maybe he’s better off for it.

    I saw Mailer at Occaquan, where they bused the protesters from the Pentagon. He was one of the first to get out and go home, prbably directly to his typewriter. He may have been a Noted Celebrity Miscreant there, but the event was really Abbie Hoffman’s.
