dread-sporting playdough snowman

Ella made the cutest playdough creation EVER this morning....

A snowman (with massively huge eyeballs) sporting some crazy-long dreadlocks.

aging DISgracefully

I got quite the chuckle out of the following conversation:

I'm at one of the classes that I attend regularly at my gym, doing the 100th set of lunges, when the lady lunging standing next to me strikes up a conversation. She's actually an acquaintance of mine because our daughters attend the same preschool, and I occasionally run into her at the gym.

She started talking to me about the different classes offered at the gym, and why she liked some but really disliked others, when all of sudden she asked me:

"Did you ever attend aerobics classes back in the '80s?"

Um..."What?" Surely I misunderstood the question.

"Did you ever attend aerobics classes in the '80s?"

I didn't know how to respond. She's such a nice lady, I didn't have the heart to say I was born in the '80s (1980, to be exact) and put her in an awkward position, so I responded in the only appropriate way I could think of:


"Oh." And with that, the conversation ended and we went on with our lunges.
