6:30 a.m. conversation with David:
David: Look, Mom! Here’s a pretty ornnament.
Me: Be very careful with that one, David. It looks breakable.
David: I’ll be very careful.
David (in a sing-song voice): Well, you were right! It was breakable!
Overheard on the el this morning:
“So I said to Brad, ‘Why don’t we get them movie tickets?’ And he said, ‘You know, I don’t know if they go to the movies all that much as a family.’ And I said, ‘You know what…at this point I don’t even care.’ ”
Merry Christmas to you too….
