These things are Fulfilling and Oddly Minty

  • my six-year-old son pronouncing it “Ugly Minty”

  • finally parking in a space without car butt sticking out and having pictures to prove it
  • remembering John Lennon
  • rice pudding debate
  • Mom’s retirement
  • Bles-id limited edition present for Daddy-O
  • black spray paint

  • wrapping presents
  • poinsettias fundraisers for youth arts

  • wondering who Chuckles  is and why said group felt it necessary to let me know via email that he is also a member
  • engine light
  • discovering it’s not spelled “pointsettia”
