Take solace in knowing they’re there

tcr! · 3 days ago

When I got to be around 14 or so I started hanging out in my dad’s basement whenever I was at his house. I watched tv down there, smoked cigarettes, and was up to all around mischief. I intentionally set the basement carpet on fire with hairspray more than twice.

When my dad was home I still hung out in the basement though. It wasn’t anything personal against him. It was more that I felt like I could be myself when I was in the basement.

Maggie: One of my friends just got his license. Can I go hangout with him for awhile?

Me: Sure, just pull your seatbelt tight. 😊

Maggie: Okay.

Me: Wait, can I come?

Maggie: If you didn’t have to go talk to your therapist you could. πŸ˜‰

Me: 😭

I just accidentally zoom-bombed one of Maggie’s remote classes.

The good news is that she rolled with it like I wasn’t even there.

Remote learning and remote working

On days when Maggie’s remote learning we take over the dining room so I can work and she can school. Today we have Fleetwood Mac’s The Dance tour from 1997 up on the TV for background ambience. πŸŽΆπŸ“ΊπŸŽΆ

Rainy day bug ride

tcr! · Oct 28, 2020 at 1:42 pm

Video (MP4): 20201018 - Rainy day bug ride

In their downtime some people like to watch sports. Some people like to sew. Some people like to forage for frogs while frolicking in the forest. I like to pretend I’m a medieval composer while Maggie puts on her cinematographer cap and we’re driving around town in the sprinkling rain.

The soundtrack and camera work makes me feel like I’m watching one of those old timey film reels. Well done you two. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

Thanks! I tried to run a stabilizer on the video but it made little difference. So I just sped up the playback πŸ‡

Me: Before I sign this screen verification form for the school, do you have COVID?

Maggie: No.

Me: Okay, just making sure.
