Waiting AND Getting Shiny Teeth

It's a waiting kind of day over here. There is the waiting for my dad's surgery to be done and the waiting to hear how John's job interview is going/went. Just waiting.

Did you ever realize that when you say or write a word very often, it starts to sound and look strange? Maybe your words are different than mine. waiting. waeting. wating. whaeting. I think it's pretty cool that in the old days people just spelled a word however they thought it looked best and that they liked to be creative about it. Sure. Standardized spelling is nice but where's the creativity in it? Hm?

Okay. Enough weighting. (See? That spelling brings up a totally different meaning. Oh well.)

Here are the latest Nathanisms:

"I'm your hero."
"Welcome to my world!"
(This one is completely John's fault.)

"Mommy! My teeth are shiny! From wipes."
(This is a result of too much unattended time in the bathroom.)

A quote to keep you company during your morning of waiting:

Inigo Montoya: But, I promise I will not kill you until you reach the top.

Man in Black: That's VERY comforting, but I'm afraid you'll just have to wait.

Inigo Montoya: I hate waiting. I could give you my word as a Spaniard.

Man in Black: No good. I've known too many Spaniards.

Inigo Montoya: Isn't there any way you trust me?

Man in Black: Nothing comes to mind.

Inigo Montoya: I swear on the soul of my father, Domingo Montoya, you will reach the top alive.

Man in Black: Throw me the rope.

That is funny! We have a buzz light year like that. Sorry for the waiting. I love hurry up and wait. I am in Cincinnati on a 4 your layover right now. The talking walkway lady is starting to sound annoying!

Mallory did some spelling today. I let her sound the words out and the results were great. She wrote the word rows for the flower Rose and a few more like that.

I hope to hear (good) news on your father soon.

Also I'm totally tickled that Jessica quoted a whole scene from the Princess Bride.
