I went with a friend of my mom's read to some special needs kids today. I wanted to get out. So, when she asked me if I was interested in helping her, I agreed. It was fun, and I wore a red-and-white stovepipe hat and got to help kids make a little booklet. They read The Foot Book.
Okay, two things are wrong here:
1 - I've sworn to never have children, and tend to avoid situations where children are involved.
Well, I can't stand--but I love--my little brother and nephews. They are why I don't want children. If that's how the cousins and uncle act, I can't imagine how my child would act. However, not all children are so rotten. And the kids I got to spend time today with were absolutely precious.
2 - I HATE tagging along. Really truly. Ask my best friend from GPort. However, I wanted to get out the house and I figured #1 wouldn't be so bad. It would only be for a little while.
But I had a great time.
Also, I found a movie, Snow Queen. You 'member, 'member? Hans Christian Andersen? My favorite fairy tale of all time? "The Snow Queen"? Any of this ringing a bell? Well, anyway, I'm gonna watch it later.
So, in my otherwise sucky life, I had a good day today.
