My sister is so like this. (Pun intended.)

Listening to the radio I had to chuckle when on a talk show a woman mentioned that her family has a Stupid Kid Tax. Anytime a child causes injury by doing something inane, that child must pay the co-pay for the medical treatment. Now the kids are getting savvy asking whether the co-pay in the hospital emergency room is more than the co-pay at the Qwicky Clinic.

I really didn’t think I was asking for the moon, when I asked A. for a class list yesterday. She told me I could make one myself. I could just have the students write their names on a paper.
Yeah, I knew I could do that, but it really isn’t official. I showed her an old list I had with kids’ names, student numbers, etc. and explained that it’s usual to get these lists for attendance records and grades. She really looked perplexed.

Have a ____ Day
by Lou Lipsitz
Have a nice day. Have a memorable day.
Have (however unlikely) a life-changing day.
Have a day of soaking rain and lightning.
Have a confused day thinking about fate.
Have a day of wholes.
Have a day of poorly marked,
unrecognizable wholes you
Have a ferocious day, a bleak
unbearable day. Have a
riotously unproductive day;
a grim jaw-clenched, Clint Eastwood vengeful
law enforcement day.
Have a day of raging, hair-yanking
jealousy and meanness. Have a day
of almost grasping
how whole you are; a finely tuned,
Have a nice day of walking and circling;
a day of stalking and hunting,
of planting strange seeds and wandering in the woods.
Have a day of endearing nonsense,
of hopelessly combing your hair,
a day of yielding, of swallowing
hard, breathing more deeply,
a day of fondness for beetles
and macabre spectacles, or irreverence
about anything you want, of just
sitting and wondering.
Have a day of wondering if it’s
going to help, or if it just doesn’t matter;
a day of dark winds
and torrents flowing though the valley,
of diving into cool water
and gasping for breath,
a day of sudden hunger for communion.
Have a day where the crusts you each
were given are lost and you stumble
with your fellows
searching endlessly together.

In Web Therapy Lisa Kudrow plays a psychologist, who could use a few sessions herself. Kudrow’s character Fiona Wallis provides 3 minute sessions because in a 50 minutes session there’s so much time wasted on dreams, feelings, past experiences, and what not that don’t add up to much in her book.
I love the dry humor.
