We got this fun ninja mask from relatives.
The son of my neighbor left his flip flops at my house, so I slipped on the mask to return them.
“Jim”, “Pam,” and son were outside admiring Jim’s new work truck when I walked up, slid the shoes onto the tailgate and backed away.
Before I explain what happened next, you should know that Pam and I had a long running joke involving me texting her the ninja emoji. It probably had to do with the time she let me sneak into her house for a cup of sugar.
What happened after this little shoe drop off is explained in this text I sent Pam soon after.
This is the most embarrassing text I’ll ever write to you (hopefully).
When I got back home, [Hubby] said, “How’d it go?”
Me: Jim said, “Nice mask.” Pam said, “You’re the ninja emoji!” and I wrote Ha!
Hubby, long pause: You WROTE, ‘Ha’?
I looked at him, confused.
Him: You just said, “I wrote ‘ha.’”
I looked across the table to [Daughter]. She, too, was looking at me like I’d had a stroke.
I was completely unaware I had said that.
Too much time texting, apparently…
I couldn’t just say that I laughed? Instead, I apparently “wrote ha”?!
In other news, the branch of jasmine that held the hummingbird nest fell. Hopefully the parents planned to build a new nest next time anyway.
Also for scale, an orange from our tree next to my daughter’s face.
Here’s how much juice we got from that one orange. (By the way, these oranges taste incredible!)
My final offering is this picture of another daughter watching to see which of our “hens” has begun crowing.
Hope you all have a lovely week!
