The White Rabbit said he was late. What was he late for? The tea party? Curious minds, such as mine, want to know.
Oh my. The Husband is doubly smart. Initially I wrote "Curious minds, such as me, want to know." That seemed off. Should it be "such as I"? Still didn't sound right, thus I asked the Husband. Neither appealed to him either.
Ever the good grammar student back in the schooldays, the Husband asked, "Is it an object or a subject?
My eyes crossed.
"Read it again," he said.
"Curious minds, such as me, want to know."
"Mind," I repeated.
"It's curious minds that want to know."
My eyes uncrossed. I'm giving an example of a curious mind. Awwww. The Husband is a genius. Alas, he didn't know either what the important date was the White Rabbit needed to make.
HOPPING BACK TO INITIAL THOUGHT
I brought up the White Rabbit because I thought I was being like him. Lately I've been hippy-hopping all over the place getting chores done, starting new projects, and doing this and that, all the while having a lot of fun.
Oh my gosh, I've opened the door, again, that's labeled Give It a Try, What do I Have to Lose?
Last weekend the Husband and I, with Good Friend Missus H, and Good Friend Bene, participated in an art workshop by El Teatro Campesiño in the town next over. Yes, that El Teatro Campesiño which came out of the United Farm Workers Movement and was founded by Luis Valdez who created Zoot Suit and La Bamba. Yup. Pretty cool.
For the past few Autumns, the locally-based theater troupe has invited the community to free art workshops where the participants help create banners, masks, puppet heads, and other props for its Dia De Los Muertos celebration on the first weekend of November. Our friends, the Husband, and I attended one of the last workshops so we got to be involved in painting details on butterflies. Yup. Pretty cool. I can hardly wait until next year to sign up for the earlier workshops.
NOT LIKE THE WHITE RABBIT
I thought I was similar to the White Rabbit because I've been late to visiting your blogs and responding to comments on mine. But, tardy is not what I am. Slow-going is more like it. So, please know I'll be coming around soon.
By the way, see all that floor in the photo way up at the top of the post. That's another cool thing. We could dance there. I invited the Husband to dance the waltz or the polka with me but he was too busy balancing the checkbook.
It has been a few years since we've seen the floor. I cleared up the piles behind my chair and in front of the Husband's desk on Sunday so that I can repot that big umbrella plant. Once that's done, by golly, by gee, I'll have to address the piles that I shoved to the sides of the room and in the closet. Fun!
