My several weeks of unfettered, ceaseless activity has now come to an abrupt halt. I have no visitors left to entertain, no places left to go, I am once again - just here. Don't you hate the let down after all the excitement has passed?
Yesterday I took my son out for seafood since he was flying out today (he flew out this morning). I am not a big seafood fan, but he is so I let him choose what we were to eat. I suffered through it and bravely (I thought) attempted the deviled crab. I wasn't impressed. He, however, was more than brave - he tried raw oysters for the first time. I wish I had gotten a picture of the expression on his face after that first one, it was absolutely priceless. The second one didn't seem to want to cooperate as well as the first and he turned a little green. He refused the rest and then moaned for the rest of the evening about how he could still feel the goo at the back of his throat.
I miss the kid already.
