Day 23: A Glimpse of the Future

Everyone’s got work to do in the morning, so we put some coffee and tea on and the house gets quiet for a few hours.

Then we head to Epic Roasthouse on the Embarcadero for a special brunch. They put one of those old seltzer bottles on the table, and it’s really hard not to start a seltzer fight.

When we get home, everyone’s busy again. Dad is working on his lecture, and my muse is finishing a knitting project.

(Knitting, what?) Don’t laugh, those 12-inch #5 aluminum needles will pin you to the wall from across the room, and you’ll never even see it coming. Trust me on this one.

She’s been doing it her whole life, and is super-fast now. Today she’s just finished up something for herself, and shows it off:


Mom and Dad are heading out of town tonight, but first we all make our way to 4th Street to watch the Lakers/Celtics game with some hot wings and beer. Gotta have priorities.

Funny thing about the game was that the TV we were looking at was about 3 seconds ahead of the big one most of the pub was watching. We’d cheer (Whoa!!), then wait 1.. 2.. 3.. “WHOA!!” …and roll over laughing. For a while there, we were able to see 3 seconds into the future. It looks pretty good.

Random assertion: If you see someone knitting, it means she has serious math skills and a whole quiver of sharp objects. Be nice to her.
