5 Things

When road tripping, Craig usually needs a little help staying awake and focused.  On one trip he came up with the “5 Things” game.  He and I would take turns asking each other to name five things.  It was successful enough to keep us entertained for four hours, and has served us well since.  Occasionally the categories are weak, but more often they make us think and discuss further.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Name 5

  • subatomic particles
  • wives of Henry VIII
  • rivers in Europe
  • scientific principles
  • U.S. presidents who were assassinated or survived assassination attempts
  • ways of saying “Hello” in different languages
  • songs that have lyrics which include numbers
  • signers of the Declaration of Independence

What “5” categories would you propose?

Listening to the grass grow

This morning is bright and sunny after a day and a half of intense rain, wind and lightning.  When I was growing up my dad would say that you could hear the grass growing on days like today.  He told us that the grass had just had a long drink and now that the sun was out it was reaching up toward the warmth, growing so fast you could hear it.  I have a very vivid memory of him slowly stretching his arms up into the air, making satisfied waking up noises, to demonstrate the grass’s actions.

Can you hear it?

How I Met Your Grandmother

My paternal grandparents attended the largest high school in the Bay Area.  Each year the school hosted “Hello Day” as an effort for the students to better know each other.  The rules were that you had to shake hands and introduce yourself to anyone with whom you came into contact that you didn’t already know.

Grandma and Grandpa had friends who were dating.  Those friends decided Art and Jeanette would be perfect for each other, so they arranged a meeting.  Grandpa’s friend arranged to meet him by the 5th floor trash can during lunch, and Grandma’s friend made the same plans. The friends never showed, and the rest is history.

Every year, on the anniversary of “Hello Day” my grandpa sent my grandma roses with a card that read “Hello again.”  I’m sure those were the first words out of his mouth when they reunited in heaven.

When you’re a jet…

Over the last year we’ve been introducing our kids to old movies.  They’ve loved Arsenic and Old Lace, Fiddler on the Roof, Bringing Up Baby and many others.  West Side Story was a harder sell though.  The older kids found it depressing, and my seven year old was a little confused.  Before the opening scene was over he asked, “So are these gangs dancers?”

For some reason he wasn’t impressed.

A picture is worth…

Last weekend a friend told me she loves my weekly “throw back” posts on Instagram.  She said she wouldn’t even know where to look for her old photos, and wondered how I had access to so many of my own.  I confessed that I’ve been obsessed with photography pretty much my entire life, so it’s really not surprising that I have loads of old, pre-digital photos at my disposal.  Because, you guys, a picture really is worth a thousand words (or more).
