** What’s up with the toe socks? You know, the ones that look like gloves for your feet?

** There are no words for the shock of looking out onto the basketball court and realizing your daughter’s teammate is a head and a half shorter than she is. Damn, that’s tall. And she was only ten.

** I was sidelined by necessity at Myrtle this week. Long sleeves, parked under an umbrella, limited time at the pool and no time on the beach, but I figured we could make it work.

I believe they’re sincerely stunned at how much a sunburn hurts. Shoot, maybe that’ll help them remember to put on the blessed sunscreen regardless of whether I’m chasing them around with the tube or not.
