My children are gearing up for my big birthday party. They've decided that my friend's house is too small and they need to find a hall to rent. I have visions of the party happening here with babies and children ransacking the house and chasing the cats under the furniture. I have nothing against babies and children. I just haven't child-proofed my house in a long time.
There is also food spillage and general mayhem. And public drunkenness. And random nudity.
Actually, the conversation with my daughter went like this (via iphone)
Maya: Hey mom. What about an Avatar theme? Everybody wears blue and braids. Tails.
Maya: Pointy ears.
Me: Big yellow eyes.
Maya: Could be fun.
Maya: Milo likes the idea. (grandson)
Me: Of course he does.
Maya: Half naked painted blue. We could make your friend's place look like the forest.
Maya: We could fly on our banshees.
Me: Oh yeah and be 10 feet tall.
Maya: For sure.
Me: I wonder if the Nav'i have midwives?
Maya: They're probably all midwives.
That's my girl.
