Oh, the Tragedy!

"The School killed it. School killed Summer. School killed Summer with a knife. School killed Summer with a knife bought from the wallet it stole from Summer." -- A partial excerpt from Gavin's rant on school starting this Thursday.

Rants don't always have to make sense, do they?

And speaking of things that don't make sense...yes, I'm thrilled, but WHY?

I think Gavin does better rants than anyone else I know. That was surrealistic and yet somehow so true. I remember feeling like that...

$49.50 US for some fabric?!??? I'm looking at the stuff under my bed in a new light.

Jay said...

First I thought you were bidding on the coin! I am such a dunce!

Jodie said...

I expect to be hearing a lot more ranting in the next few days, Clive. :D

Jay, you make me laugh!

Maureen, this was one of my better fabric auctions, but a lot of women who like fabric have discovered Ebay, so it not only sells well, but it's easy to ship. :D

Astrid said...

Wow, at least Summer's death is not a mystery! No need to spend your money on a private investigator, so maybe you should spend it on some more of that yummy icecream!

Lita said...

Wow, school starts early where you live. Here, the kids do not go back until the Thursday after Labor Day.

I think Gavin has the potential to be a screenplay writer.

Jodie said...

Astrid, there is NEVER enough ice cream. Especially Italian ice cream.

Lita, I think he'd make a good one too -- but what he REALLY wants to do (right now, anyway) is write the backstories for online computer games like World of Warcraft. Since his original choice of job (at age 5) was "be frog and eat bugs in the backyard" anything is an improvement.

AVA said...

Hahhaa, your kid is smart.
You're not bidding on that piece of fabric are you??
unless it's a huge piece, it's very expensive dear!

Jodie said...

Ava, I SOLD that piece of fabric (that's why I'm thrilled!) -- and it's not all that big, either!

Glod said...

When's Labor day? If it was one of our days it'd be spelt better as such: Labour day.

Lita said...

Considering the current choice of television shows, it seems that Gavin had foresight with his original career choice. Fear Factor comes to mind. LOL

Jodie said...

Glod, I DO like the English spellings better -- they just look FANCY. :) I think it's the first Monday in September, but I'm not sure.

Oh Lita, he'll LAUGH when I pass that on!

Keeefer said...

Thats an excellent rant (and he's right too!)

kath red said...
