Brace Yourself: It's a SpongeBob Birthday
I think that if a child invites only his best friends, a birthday held at home can be really great. There were no scheduled activities. Big brother invited six friends, and along with his little sister and brother, they ran laps around the house for three hours. When it was all over, I was laughing madly and flogging myself with an empty pizza box. (That's what happens when you overdose on SpongeBob and preschoolers.) I cleaned for about two days. The pinata candy in the shower stall is still an unsolved mystery. It was worth the trouble, however, since the kids had a blast, and big brother declared this year's party "The BEST DAY EVER!"
Dear Internet Traveler,
Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
