I don’t remember why, but at supper Monday night we were talking about nicknames. For some reason, the boys have been dubbed “Mojo” and “Peeps.” I think they picked those themselves, but supposedly that is what their friends are calling them at school.
I needed to call my Mom and ask her when she was going to be over, and feeling silly I said “Mojo and Peeps want to know when you are going to be here.”
She wanted to know what her nickname was, so of course, we had to brainstorm a bit before she arrived.
It was pretty unanimous: “Socks” is her new nickname. I offer as evidence, the newest pair that I am lucky enough to be wearing. I didn’t even know she was making these for me. Cool colors, cool patterning. And! They are made out of corn. The fiber is a corn/nylon blend.
The reason Mom was coming over Monday was so that Mark and I could go to the movie downtown, which was Jumper. We are glad we only had to spend $1 per ticket to see it, as it wasn’t worth much more than that. Mark gave up and fell asleep. I felt compelled to watch the whole thing and am just glad it was a short movie.
All for now,
