August 28 recap
Laugh of the day:
Overheard Zoe talking to her Sesame Street stickers in the car, “oh, Cookie Monster, what are you doing on my leg? No, you don’t belong on my leg, you want to go on my cheek!”
Sin of the day
Forgive me other farm share member, I may have sinned against you. While packing up our corn (fresh corn! yay!) I noticed one of the ears had a cocoon or some really big, hard insecty thing inside it. I couldn’t deal. I put it in your box. I didn’t take anything out of your box, so technically, you’re getting out more corn out of the deal, so maybe it’s not really a sin. As an aside, now I have confirmation that the corn is pesticide-free.
Unexpected discovery of the day
Zoe and I were out running errands today and were in a mall in the suburbs. As we were walking out, I noticed the floor tiles had a bunch of fossils in them. Lots of very cool amonites (they look a little like swirly snail shells, but cooler. I pointed them out to Zoe and she started hunting for them. Some people have this gift that they can find fossils anywhere. The geologist that I worked for in high school and college had that knack. He literally stumbled over previously undiscovered dinosaur tracks. Multiple times. I never had that gift, I’ve only ever found the most common of fossils. On the off chance that this skill is learned and not inherited, I figured I’d start training Zoe early.
