Said by a proud twelve-year old in a school hallway:
"My mom says that ninety-five percent of the time I'm really good at not complaining about stuff."
Not bad. I'm going to make a list of things I'm ninety-five percent good at. Stay tuned.
OTHER THINGS I DID THAT WERE IMPRESSIVE.
1. Changed an anonymous toddler's diaper in a public restroom in under 25 minutes; a task that would have taken a mere mortal at least 26 minutes to do. Seem like a lengthy amount of time? Read below please.
2. Exited the premises of this restroom inside a coffee shop having left the bathroom with the overloaded contents of an uncontained diaper in their garbage can (sorry!) and a bathroom roughly the aromatic equivalent of Chernobyl. Should management have chosen to call law enforcement on us to ensure we never again defiled their business bathroom, I would have completely understood. I used half a container of wipes to clean this anonymous toddler from the digestive contents of his rice-and-curry lunch that somehow made their way to every part of his body from neck down while he slept.
3. Went on not one, but two mini-field trips to monitor water quality at local streams.
4. Cleaned not one, but two absolutely filthy and wretched-smelling goat pens (see: #1, #2).
5. Beat not one, not two, not three, but all four members of my family in Sesame Street Memory Game.
THAT is impressive. And unlikely to be repeated for a while.
