monday march 29

today i watched my dodgeball team play a game in a nearby elementary school. afterward, while waiting for everyone to change out of their gym clothes, i noticed a large sheet of paper hanging outside one of the school's classrooms. it was a list of future ambitions of all the young students, seemingly completed by a preschool or kindergarten class, and titled "when i grow up i want to be...." while the most chuckle-worthy (kids say the darndest things) item on the list was kathleen's reply of "a teenager," my favourite answer, by far, was julian's: "a griffin, has two heads a lion head and eagel head."

I remember when I had to do one of those, I couldn't decide on what I wanted to be. My teacher was tired of waiting and put down "a mommy" on my behalf. Years later, I'm still miffed about that.
