Of Death and Laundry

My pre-calc student and I were on the internet looking up something when I went to Google and saw today's Google art, which was very cool. (My brother had already given me a head's up.)

Me: Hunh. Look at this. This is what my brother was talking about it.

Student: What is it?

Me: It's ... a synthesizer.

Student: *playing with it* How cool is this?

Me: Very. Moog. Hunh. How cool would that be to have Google celebrate your birthday? I'd frickin' love that... to do something so big they made art for me.

Student: Um. I think you have to be dead.

Me: Are you sure?

Student: Pretty sure.

Me: Not ready for that then...

Student: No, not yet.


Bones and I in the car:

Bones: So coach washes my PE uniform...

Me: WAIT. YOUR COACH washes your PE uniform? That's right! I haven't seen any PE uniforms when I do the laundry. BONES! That is not his job to wash your clothes...

Bones: Well, he has his own washer and dryer right there at the school and he said he'll do our uniforms if we want. So I just give them to him and he washes them all.

Me: Bones!

Bones: You want to wash it?

Me: Your teacher shouldn't be washing your clothes!

Bones: I know... but Mom... he uses that stuff... with the little cuddly bear... and my clothes smell so good and they're so soft...

Great. I lost out doing laundry to the PE coach because he buys better detergent. Not that it's a real loss... but still...

I loved the synthesizer yesterday. And the laundry... I laughed so hard. I could so see Bones picking soft and smelling good... over efficient and no smell.

Well technically it's fabric softener Bones is talking about.

Snuggle, the creepy Bear that romps around in your clothes.

I guess the coach doesn't want to smell a whole team's worth of unwashed's worth his time, lol!
