Keeping it together

I have a friend who likes to tell everyone that I “have it all together”. It’s kind of her to have confidence in me, but I definitely have my screw ups. Like yesterday when I taught a new song to the children’s Sunday School….but not the song the director had asked me to teach in her absence (oops).  Or that time I dropped my 12 year old off for a Halloween costume party a week early (so awkward, but major points on the ’embarrassing your kid’ scale).

The Science of Photography

Yesterday I spoke to a group of middle schoolers about photography.  One hundred kids from the gifted program at our school district listened to me talk about shutter speed, aperture, ISO, leading lines, rule of thirds and other related subjects.  They were polite, interested and engaged.  They asked great questions.  Middle schoolers are pretty rad.

The Scariest Thing that Ever Happened to Me

One evening, when I was in the seventh grade, I got a ride home after a volleyball game. Not long after walking in the door the phone rang and on the other end a low, menacing voice said, “What are you doing in my house?”

I freaked out. It was dark outside. I lived on a ranch and had no next door neighbors, just fields. I hung up the phone and called our across the road neighbor, Diane.  With binoculars she could see what was happening at our house. She told me to turn on all the lights and to stand by the front window so she could make sure I was safe while she called my grandpa to drive down from the other end of the ranch and check on things.  Nothing happened, and all was well, but I was freaked out.  FREAKED OUT!

For years I told this as my scariest experience in life. It still gave me chills to think about being 13, at home alone, and getting that call. About a decade later I was sharing this story with my new sister-in-law when my dad started chuckling. “What’s so funny?” I demanded, “It scared me!”

“That was me,” he said. “I was at work, and when you picked up the phone I thought I’d play a trick on you, but you hung up before I could tell you it was me, and then when I called back it was busy.” (We never had call waiting.)  I was immediately both relieved that a creeper hadn’t called me and incredibly put-out that he took away my scariest story.  Dads.

Grilled Cheese

My freshman year of college I lived in the Foreign Language Housing. I shared an apartment with four other girls who were learning Spanish and one native speaker. To live in the housing we signed a contract promising to only speak Spanish in our apartment. Our rent also included dinner Sunday-Thursday, which was made, and shared, by the residents of our “house” (the Spanish house for me).

Our “house” was made up of five apartments, so there were thirty of us.  We created cooking groups, based on our schedules and had the responsibility to cook twice a month. My group was made up two boys and me. They were nice kids, but I was definitely the cook in the bunch, which meant that the planning fell on me.

One week I had to stay on campus late for an exam, so I asked the boys to start without me. We were making grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. I asked them to have the soup on the stove, the cheese sliced, and the bread buttered so that when I got there we could start cooking sandwiches.

When I arrived they apologized for being behind the schedule.  The buttering of the bread, they explained, was taking longer than expected.  As I peeked over their shoulders I discovered the problem.  They had melted the butter and were drizzling it on pieces of bread with a spoon, trying to provide full bread coverage.  They didn’t know that for grilled cheese you just have to butter bread, not melt it before applying to the bread.  College boys.

See you in the funny papers!

Last week I was running an errand at the bank and on my way back to the car I suddenly found myself on the ground. I had slipped and landed on my right knee.  I was surprised and thought there must have been some oil on the pavement that I hadn’t noticed.  After pulling myself up I looked down to find…..a banana peel.  I had slipped on a half rotten banana peel.  Who does that? Cartoon characters and me, that’s who!
