David was sick all last night and did not go to kindergarten, ok? In the morning, Mama was feeding Tom in the living room and everything was quiet, ok? At some point, David apparently started feeling better, ok? Mama turned to find David covered in white stuff shouting 'boo!', ok? Mama screamed and began chasing David throughout the apartment, ok?

The white stuff is actually for diaper rashes. For those lucky bastards without little kids, this stuff is like tar mixed with crazy glue. It does not come off easily so for the rest of the day, David had a certain Michael Jackson glow about him.

In addition to learning how to gain Mama's freak-out attention, David also began ending every sentence with ok? My only guess is that he must have a Canadian in his class, eh? I can only hope that this irritating quirk rubs off sooner than the butt cream he spread all over his hands, face, and most of our apartment by the time Mama caught him. I suppose it is better than 'dude', although 'Where's my car, ok?' would be just as annoying.

While David was busy dripping gooey ointment all over the place, Peter was getting in some trouble of his own. He was in art class with the general assumption that he would be making art, in some form or fashion. Art is in the eye of the beholder, but I think even the beholder would not see any creative flair in wadding up spitballs and trying to peg the nice, low-hanging chandelier in the classroom.

He is normally quite interested in art class, but today his friend Ruaidhri joined and Peter´s self-proclaimed desire to be the class clown got the better of him. At least he had the decency to make his mess outside of the house. Hey David, maybe you could learn a little something from your brother, ok?
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I played with Ruaidhri.
David: When Ruaidhri came by and when Ruaidhri mommy comes, ok?

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When David didn't go to kindergarten.
David: When I go not in kindergarten, ok?

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Dalia's and play with her.
David: When I go'ed mit you and me and Peter swimming with animals, ok?
