glamour

Child 2 squozed itself onto my comfy chair at the bookstore. Fortunately it was a wide comfy chair and we are not wide people. However Its head was rather closer to my face than it normally is and I couldn't help but notice that It has particularly attractive hair.

Which I mentioned.

Child 2 is practicing accepting compliments so it did not reject the comment. It harrumphed a bit then brightened up and said, "oh! You too mom!" Which shows how wise Child 2 is becoming.

We agreed that basically we represented a chair full of fabulousness.

People might even slip in it as they walk by.

Yes, Child 2 says, it's pooling around us, all oozy.

Hmmmm I say, sort of like a slug, only gorgeous?

Definitely.

thats one of my favourite ways to read - curled up in a cosy chair with someone i really like/love - if you both sit on a diagonal (opposite diagonals, natch) and over lap legs it can be really nice and happiness inducing :)

what i like most about reading your blog is your familys un-erring instinct for turning a phrase :)

Mutual gorgiousness is a brilliant thing...it is indeed thick and glossy but also impenitrable....

I don't mean to be rude but that sounds gross-ish, yes very beautiful girls but the way it was said, ummmmm, yeah.-cadet

emily - I have a deep and abiding love for cozy chairs! Also a deep and abiding love for books...

mujja - yes indeedy! Of course we're very humble about our thick and glossy gorgeousness.

cadet - whaddaya mean? Slugs are beautiful and useful creatures. Except banana slugs which are quite disturbing if you come across them unexpectedly. We are definitely not banana slugs.
