Tonight was school Open House. At the Middle School. It was two hours long. Many parents actually showed up. The rooms were crowded, it was hot, there was no parking and the chairs were hard. I can't imagine being a student again. We only had to sit on those classroom chairs for part of an evening... I can't imagine a whole day of it! I don't remember the chairs being that hard when I was in eighth grade. Or maybe the nice, cushy, good-for-sitting-on part of my bottom has actually migrated to the front of my midsection as I've aged. I mean matured. Because the act of sitting down is quite a sensory experience for me, I've noticed.
On an UP note, I made Mexican Corn Chowder and corn bread with fluffy honey butter for dinner tonight. My only regret was that we didn't actually get to sit down as a family unit and talk about how divine this meal was. And how amazing the cook is, having the time to make such a succulent dinner, what with all the activity that she already has going on in her life. Man, I would have sat on those hard chairs for days, as long as I was shovelling in that corn bread. Seriously. You should try this combo. It's that good.
