I'll Come Around to See You Once In a While

A man and his granddaughter at the orchard.

I had a great night tonight. The guy came over to eat. I made enchiladas, rice, beans, de gallo, guacamole and we drank some Mexican beer. Stinky was here for dinner before she went to her youth group, so they got to know each other a little better. Of course, when I say "they got to know each other a little better", I mean they bonded some more by talking about me like I wasn't there and both doubted that I will start swimming laps this Winter, like I keep saying I will. I'm not sure I like this kind of bonding one bit.

On a little different note, Facebook has been good for watching my daughters' relationship progress from a distance. Here is a little exchange I happened to stumble upon on Stinky's Facebook page:

Stinky's status update:

Glow stick night games!! That's what's up!

Coadster's comment:
    • That's what's up? Please stop saying that! For everyone's sake :D

  • Stinky's response:

    • I'm finna punch chuu in da face!

  • Coadster's:

    • If I were home right now, I'd slap you!

    • Stinky's: I'd karate chop the shit outta youuu! :)

    • Coadster's: I'm sooooo scared! NOT :D

    • Stinky's: Love youuu!

So, um. Yeah. I'd say we're really getting our money's worth out of Facebook these days. Where else can you have these kinds of meaningful exchanges with your kin?

Is Wilson's orchard still open? They had the BEST apple pies. Your girls sound like mine.

So, did you laugh or wince at the Facebook stuff? I think it's way more fun than if they were having philosophical chats. pft.

I would wish for all of my brothers to be Facebook savvy, but I might be sorry. :)

Sounds like a great meal you all had last night!

Your mexican dinner sounds great, and I love the bonding even if it is at your expense.

I always feel oddly flattered when people bond over me as a target :-)
Your girls are funny! I love watching my kids' FB convos too...just them being them.

I'm going to have to spend more time on my FB. I hardly ever look at my kids! Fun stuff here.

It sounds like you and the guy and Stinky are getting into a nice, healthy pattern. Cool beans. What a nice way to spend the evening.

Very important communication!
