But right now I am very sleepy, so all you get is this anecdote from today, the first full day of the San Antonio/my sister's wedding portion of my trip.
I was at the pool in my parents' subdivision with them, my brother and sister-in-law, San Antonio Roommate Holly, and Lisa and her fiance Gary. When I noticed what appeared to be a giant insect swimming toward Gary. And I very helpfully shouted:
THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING SWIMMING TOWARD YOU.
Which, naturally, alarmed him. The thing turned out to be a frog and the situation was diffused by its removal from the pool. But it did make me wonder about my ability to be of use in a crisis situation. That "definitely" was just window dressing there, wasn't it? Wasted time. It wasn't as if Gary would have doubted my sincerity if I had been more brief.
What next? IT DOES NOT SEEM UNREASONABLE TO THINK AND I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM UNJUSTIFIED IN DISPLAYING SOME DEGREE OF ALARM WHILE POINTING OUT THAT YOUR HOUSE APPEARS TO HAVE VERY POSSIBLY CAUGHT SOMEWHAT ON FIRE? God help us all if our survival ever depends on my ability to speak concisely.
Coming soon: My trip to New York! The Sharon and Eili's Wedding Recap!
Coming much sooner: Brushing my teeth and going to bed!
Nighty night, Internet.
