There’s a whole lot of good stuff about the Favorite Kid getting married off, the first being that now I have two Favorites.
And grand dogs. Two of those in the family now, too.
An embarrassment of riches, y’all.
So I guess getting the chalkboard for Holly’s monthly birthday photo shoot should be lower on the excitement meter. Yet, I admit being a little jazzed to have it.
And by have it, I mean I commandeered it from the wedding reception. It was on the bar, a chalky sentinel tasked with advertising the choice of beverages available to the revelers.
“Let me just put that in my trunk for you guys,” I said to the newlyweds. “You’ve got enough to take home with you.” Because I can be clever like that.
It’s not like they’ll never see the chalkboard again, of course. It’s just a hyperlink away. Or a visit back home to see the parents. That too.
