My dear friends the Ms came over for dinner tonight. The patriarch of the family is in the National Guard and is currently deployed, and the matriarch doesn’t cook, so I was more than happy to feed them - especially since they are so good about watching Ray, most recently on Monday evening.
They seemed to like the food I prepared - sweet potato veggie burgers with slaw and avocado mash on ciabatta with homemade peach phyllo pastries for dessert. I just felt bad that Ray was so tired and cranky from his shots yesterday that he wasn’t awake for long, going to bed less than an hour after the Ms arrived.
The younger M daughter is a theatre actress with a sharp sense of humor and countless ideas for short scripts. I suggested she start a Tumblr to post her ideas, get feedback and create a digital archive for herself - and 37-year-old me took a great deal of satisfaction in being able to teach a 16-year-old something they didn’t already know about social media.
