LP stayed after school yesterday for her first assignment as a cub reporter on the school newspaper. With her friend Island Girl, she covered the ribbon-cutting ceremony for new doors somewhere in or around the great mass of Downtown High School (which by the way is the same school as City By the Sea High School, which #1 Son attended; somehow I want it to have a different name this time). Riding the city bus home from school is working well when she takes it right after school, but an hour or so later, the people on it do not necessarily include high school students, and some of them are "creepy," so I offered to pick her up after the event.
On the way home we detoured to Starbucks, where I planned to touch nothing, since I still have a cough. But as we walked in we saw a basket full of these cute little guys, and before I realized what I was doing, I had my hands on one of them.
I mean, he was *really* cute.
LP narrowed her eyes at me. "You realize you've put swine flu on him."
"I guess we'll have to bring him home, then."
LP smiled triumphantly, saying, "That'll blog!"
