This is a new level of commitment; writing a blog post on my phone while I sit in the community centre, using their WiFi and staying within striking distance of a birthday party.
All the boys were invited, which is very sweet, but with George’s separation issues I didn’t feel right leaving altogether. However, I also have zero interest in The Amazing Mr. J’s magic show, and I am not at all feeling casual interaction with strangers, so here we are.
The birthday kid lives in our neighborhood and is just turning five. The other parents are all a LOT younger than I am, as a consequence. I’m just not feeling it.
Children’s entertainers are a unique breed, aren’t they? Damn, this guy is loud. He is out-and-out screaming to an audience of maybe a dozen kids. It’s a bit much.
