The good: My son picked out his own lobster for dinner. The bad: He asked why the lobster was no longer moving when it arrived at the table.
Oy vey. That was a conversation I was not at all prepared for – which quickly became obvious when I told him that the waiter took out the lobster’s batteries so we could eat him. Aren’t you all jealous of my quick-thinking skills? Note to self: research how to explain the birds and the bees.
Besides that incident, total lack of sleep and accidentally getting into the wrong rental car, we’re having the best vaca in Maine with the family. Maine is true perfection and Danny Phillips Art has totally captured it in his arwork.
He doesn’t just get Maine, he gets my love for this place. I wonder if he ALSO gets that I really, really need a babysitter? Seriously, I need a moment alone here – my brother in law’s new home doesn’t have window shades yet and THE. SUN. RISES. EARLY. IN. MAINE.
Guess what? THE GIVEAWAY ends tomorrow. And that’s like really soon.
