The Byzantine Dominican (here) only has 3 posts on the front page, but all of them are worth a read.
It occurred to me the other night, if the Ironic Catholic’s kiddos are chic(s), and I’m an EC, would that make my kiddos chec(s)? And when they don’t understand something I have just told them in plain English, they would then be blank checs?
If all three of them are invited to different social occasions on the same day, is the youngest therefore a third-party chec?
Jumping on a trampoline: bounced checs
Sleeping in a seemingly anatomically impossible configuration: rubber checs
ByzCat’s kiddos on a sleepover or playdate: guest checs
Displaying a typical (for them) aversion to umbrellas: rain chec
Anybody got any others?
I got up at 1:30 this morning, intending to awaken oldest sleeping chec to come outside and view the Quadrantid meteor shower (when moon & clouds don’t interfere, supposedly one can see 100+ meteors per hour). When we went to bed at 9 p.m. the sky was nearly perfectly clear – I went out to check the view before getting him out of bed and ARRGH! the only thing visible besides the clouds was the FULL MOON, directly overhead, and so bright it was casting shadows. Needless to say we’ll have to try again in April (the name of that one escapes me for the moment).
