A Look Back

Kindergarten, 1971.

I got a note from a set of twins in my class that read,

ADear Grace, we hate you, Love, Greg and Jeff."

I don=t actually remember my response to this hate/love note,
but year after year, my nanny fondly recalled the day that it happened.
She said that she was waiting in her car in front of the school for
class to let out, and moments after the final bell rang, she saw me,
tearing out of the building, down the sidewalk and fling myself into
the backseat of her car, sighing loudly. I then exclaimed,

"They love me!"

I'm pretty sure that it was a Friday, because
by the next day of school, I had completely forgotten about them
and had resumed my obsession with a boy named Paul.
I loved Paul until the 3rd grade. It was then that we moved away,
and during those few years never once did Paul even acknowledge
my existence. Sure, there were many other boys who pulled
my hair and chased me around the classroom, but looking back,
I=m sure that I wasn=t interested in them because they made their
intentions so obvious. Back then, I preferred the challenge, the chase,
the blatant disinterest from my pursuits.

My daughter starts kindergarten this year.  I think it's time for a little
heart to heart talk.  I think I'm going to tell her that boys have cooties.

The X Factor

I'm sure you've all been wondering...  perhaps even worrying,
about today's
Food Friday~ The X Factor. 

Well, truth be told,
The X factor has nothing to do with Big Brother 4,
(nor the so-called *&%$ "twist".) 
It also has nothing to do with the X Factor Diet. [rolls eyes]

What is it then you ask?

That's a very good question.  One that I will answer once I've figured
it out myself  and given my arm some time to heal from all the Extreme
IMing I've been doing this week.  But, you mustn't  concern yourself
with the trivialities of my life, because you have one of your own.
Don't you?

And, today is Food Friday, afterall; a day of nourishing goodness.

Until I feel like it, you may commence your regular Friday duties. 
Just don't forget to come back later for... something. 
I'm just not sure what.

Inquiring minds want to know. They really do.

Tomorrow's Food Friday you ask?

Why, it's the letter X... 
X is for The X Factor.

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.
