How sweet it is.

Thursday, October 18

It's Spirit Week at my daughter's high school in celebration of their Homecoming, with today being "Sweet and Sour Day". I don't remember any such thing when I went to school. Come to think of it I didn't even attend the Homecoming dances. But I'm happy to see that she's having fun with this. This is how she and her friend greeted me at the breakfast table this morning . . .

If you can't tell from this photo, they are "nerd and gangster" respectively. My daughter is the nerd, taped glasses and calculator in pocket, and her buddy is the gangster, complete with an aluminum foil grill on her teeth and a g-unit belt. I thought it said "gun it". Her pants were so low on her thighs I was afraid she'd left them in the back seat of my truck when she hopped out at the school.

When I packed her lunch this morning, I couldn't resist slipping in a little note that read, "You're such a nerd. Love m."
