1. Yesterday we heard a radio ad for Tully’s where they talk about how they listen to the sound of the beans popping to know when the coffee is roasted just right.
Radio: “…at Tully’s, we roast coffee with our ears!”
Vincenzo: “Oh, YUCK!”
Rocco, looking out the car window on the freeway: “Car! Car! Car! Car!”
Vincenzo, drily: Thank you, Captain Obvious.
3. You all remember how I let Rocco’s hair get so long this summer that people started mistaking him as a girl? Well here’s what happens when you let the same thing happen to your five-year-old and then it’s picture day at school.
I can just see the photographer making “I can’t believe this kid’s lousy excuse for a mother sent him to school looking like this” eyes with Vincenzo’s teacher as he pulled out his black comb and went to work.
BTW, I showed the picture to my mom and she thought it looked nice.
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Spinach and cheese ravioli (store bought)
Salad with apples and blue cheese
