I think I'm done making all the demolition cuts.

I'm *sure* I'm done for the night.

hot tub plus bourbon plus good music == good time

good night.

I made a small crack this morning in Minifob's neverending negativity about his physical size. (Hint: all the people telling my son that "his time will come," or "he'll have a growth spurt soon," or "nobody grows at the same rate" is not helpful, because it reinforces the idea that being tall is important and necessary and inevitable. He will not be, and he needs to become at peace with that, not add fuel to the disappointment by pushing it into the future.)

Anyway, the angle I took this morning was that professionally funny people are often at physical extremes--either extremely tall, or else extremely short. See Kevin Hart, Jon Stewart, Danny Devito, Patton Oswalt... He was (at least briefly) pleased to consider that being short might be a necessary side effect of being a performer.

Buster Keaton was under 5'5" and wore a 6 1/2 shoe.

Dropper down, clean decent, nailed the split logs... extreme forest bathing I guess.

right on Dr. Fob. How tall is he predicted to be? Does he aspire to be a professional comedian?

Being tall hasn't many advantages for me, although I am useful at getting things off high shelves.

I'm often accosted by strange ladies in Tesco for that very purpose.

Sometimes I'm accosted by perfectly normal ladies as well.

But not often.

I'm happy today because I'm done moving backwards on the bathroom demolition/reconstruction project.

Today I will sister one of the littler beams, replace the subfloor boards, including carving the cutaway for the toilet drain, tarpaper for a vapor barrier, one sheet of half inch pressure treated OSB, another layer of tarpaper, another sheet of half inch pressure treated OSB, both of which will need to be puzzle-pieced back into place under and around the toilet flange and under the remains of the vanity. Then I can bring the toilet back in from the hallway where it's been for a couple weeks and reinstall it in the damn bathroom.

That's what happy looks like to me.
