unexpected habits and rituals develop from a shared life. one thing unique to jon & i is our vocabulary. i’ve noticed lately that we have a slew of words and phrases that would make NO SENSE to other people.

for example …

"do you want to go on a you-know-what to the you-know-where?" = this means "go on a walk to the park." we can’t whisper either word in front of the dog without her ears perking up and her tail wagging. we must be cautious with her feelings.

"jenn’s absolute favorite movie" = this means ‘iron man 2.’ i love iron man 2 and jon, and everyone else, cannot understand why it’s so dear to my heart. it’s also on TV pretty much ALL the time so i frequently hear, "hey, your favorite movie that no one else likes is on again!"

"cyborg-computer-dog" = mavi. we got mavi implanted with one of those tracking chips so we can find her if she’s ever lost. but we like to pretend we just gave her secret robotic powers.

"the sexy wine place" = the liquor store around the block from our apartment. it sells fancy wines but with its dim lighting & exterior decoration, i thought it was a weird club …

"fleurs"  = french for flowers. we are not french. i have no idea where this came from. 

i have reservations about posting photos of my baby niece, because she’s not my baby. but i sincerely could not resist with this one. 
here she is deeply concentrating on the star wars book i gave her for christmas (before she was even born). total. heart. explosion.

Do you think every president goes through a awkward first few weeks in office when they’re not sure when’s the right time to ask if aliens are real or not?
