The chef's birthday is May 28, exactly two months after mine. Older and wiser. He begged for this super expensive Nikon D5000 camera. Arg. Of course, he had to set his heart on something that should be equal to three or four birthdays combined. But he has it now. I thought that would be the end of camera-talk, camera-websites, and camera nonsense. HA. I got home at 5:15 today and I haven't said more than a few words to the chef who's been to preoccupied with his new toy to notice me.
I'm really glad he has this new hobby, but this is my only night of the work week to have an adult conversation after spending all day with second graders. Oh, I love doing voices when I read, tying shoelaces, and grading papers but I'm only human and I need something stimulating. I guess I can't expect Erik to drop all of his interests to spend his only free time with me. And if that's going to be true then I've got to make sure I'm not sacrificing my independence either. It's 8:20 PM and I'm going to bed to read a book.
Food is Love
