Marita from Stuff with Thing offered to drive the eleventy hours to visit me in BumFuckNowhere.
And it was awesome.
Boo, who normally shuns all contact with mammals (I am pretty sure that there are a family of invertebrates and probably arachnids evolving in his room these school holidays) spent a lovely afternoon playing Nerf Guns with her daughters.
I might add that actual foam pellets were shot out of the guns and targets hit, something that I know The Damn Emos and MPS will be mightily pissed off about cause there is no way in hell Boo ever let THEM touch his guns.
Marita and I shot the shit in the dining room drinking coffee and eating brownies, while the kids shot the shit out their fears that they drew as targets.
After a few hours Boo retired to his room to regroup and Heidi and Annie hung out on the lounge playing on their ipads while we gossiped about all of you.*
We are pretty much on the same wavelength. MOST of you are awesome.**
SO despite my home looking like abandoned crack house cause of my stupid arsed shoulder and colder than fuck cause the central heating was playing funny fuckers, it was AWESOME having a friendly face from the internet hanging out in my house.
And Boo made some new friends that were very kind and accepting and loved the pretty damn fabulous playground setup that we have going on here.
So who’s next? I promise to get the heating fixed if you bring me doughnuts.
And promise not to murder me.
* To be honest, we actually didn’t talk about the internet world much. Mainly talked about Autism and husbands and kids and lack of sleep.
**I kid, I kid. OBVIOUSLY if you are reading here you are awesome. It’s a by product.
