The comic misadventures continued this week:
Thursday night, I spent an hour and a half translating a recipe into pictures. As in, removing all the words and replacing them with images of the ingredients, the amounts, what to do with them, etc. I did this so that my students could follow the recipe themselves, which makes cooking with kids more fun, because they feel like they're "reading." It also creates opportunities for meaningful interchanges and some "math."
Anyway, it was gorgeous. Never has a recipe for applesauce brownies been more beautiful.
I saved it to my desktop and went to bed.
Then, in the morning, I forgot my computer on the couch when I went to work.
Later that day, I got home from work, realized I was thirsty and decided to go to the corner store for a soda.
I got my bag, my shoes and my sunglasses and left the house, pulling the door shut (it was latched, of course). I then reached into my bag to pull out my keys to lock the screen.
They were inside the house.
My supposed 3 minute trip to get a soda turned into an hour long trek over to Cal, so that I could get keys from Boyfriend. I took the circuitous route around campus, got stopped by families of graduaters wanting me to take family photos and got a little lost (cause I'm used to accessing his lab from North Side, not from South Side)......
And that, dear friends, is how I started my weekend.
Must go on grandma duty now.
