I woke up this morning with a slight crick in my neck…which I shrugged off as normal
after playing in the snow with Charlie and swimming at the Y, this slight crick turned into a rather obnoxious neck ache…
so tonight for the first time ever I used an “extra strength Pain Relief therapy patch” (that works on contact for cooling pain relief–says the package). I have to say I give the pain patch a thumbs up…because I can now turn my head without wanting to groan aloud…although I do smell a bit like old people…if i walked by a blind person…they would think I was 80.
Does this mean I am old?
Another beautiful part of my day was making Spongebob Squarepants Mac and Cheese with Charlie.
Lindsey: “so…who is this?”
Charlie: “that’s Spongebob, he lives in a pineapple.”
Lindsey: “oh, a real pineappple?”
Charlie: “yeah, like the fruit.”
Lindsey: “When you buy a pineapple at the store do you wonder if Spongebob lives in there?”
Charlie: (in a sweet, ‘it’s hard to break this to you’ voice) “no, Spongebob lives in a cartoon, we don’t live in a cartoon…and we eat real fruit, not cartoon fruit.”
This continued all through the making and eating of the mac and cheese. I learned about some starfish guy, and a squirrel who lives in a bubble…and how we can’t ever meet a cartoon because we aren’t in a cartoon. It was pretty amazing really, fantastic lunch conversation!
