There’s a little red Corvette parked in my driveway. And you should know that when I say little red Corvette, I’m actually singing it. Like Prince.
The Corvette is a loaner from my father-in-law while we work out our car situation. Our neighbors don’t know that, though. They only know that it showed up on Christmas and Dave has been driving it, which makes me look like the coolest wife ever.
I actually gave him the video game Spore for Christmas, which means I’m -3% as cool as they think I am.
Our Christmas Not On Christmas was wonderful, by the way. Julia found the Barbie and the Diamond Castle dolls she’d been longing for under the tree. Lucy got toys, but who the hell cares about that when they come wrapped in PAPER. We played together all day long. The whole family. And that was my best Christmas present.
Dave has been home for four whole days. He’s had the girls in his lap for most of that time. They can’t get enough of their daddy.
This has given me plenty of time to build civilizations on that video game I gave him for Christmas. And that means I’m actually -112% cooler than the neighbors think I am.
