Well, that’s done. 5 down, 2 to go!
Actually, the graduation ceremony was lovely. Total length of time was right around 60 minutes. There were only a few boring speeches; the valedictory speech was a hit and the principal mentioned my boy by name in his speech.
After the ceremony, most of the parents were on the auditorium floor offering congratulations and taking pictures and such. When we were done with all of that I was heading for the seats and the upper floor…and as I raised my foot to climb the first step, something got in my way and I crashed to the steps in a rather ignominious fashion. Well, ignominious might be a little harsh, but it was bad. I hurt all over.
Available came to my rescue and helped me climb the remaining 20 or so steps. We had just reached the top when I heard a big crash – I paused, looked over my left shoulder, and saw the ball and chain – my dear husband – picking himself up off of the step in the exact same place I had turfed it only moments before.
How’s that for freakin’ weird?
He fell much harder than I – he actually banged his left cheek on the step. Poor Available was almost hysterical, she was so upset. I’m thinking we should sue.
No, not Available – the venue!
We went out for dinner at the steakhouse, and then we had cake! There were presents…
Anyway, we are both a little worse for the wear today. Everyone slept for kind of a long time this morning.
Getting old is rough, I guess.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the best day of the ball and chain’s life! Our 24th wedding anniversary! Gosh, I hope we will be able to sit up and take nourishment.
Over and out.
