Don’t Chew Like a Fox — A Twitter play

fireplaceSetting: Fin Fam Moomincabin, a not-beach-day Monday afternoon.

Characters: @kayakwoman and @tmotu.

[Strange crunching noise.]

@kayakwoman: What are you eating?

@tmotu: I’m not eating. It’s a fox eating a camera.

The End.

Here’s the link.

Other than that, do other families fight over who does the dishes? I don’t really mean fight fight. We don’t fight. But here I am at the moomincabin and one of my MacMu uber-cuzzints is visiting and we were laughing today about the dishwashing wars. Here’s the deal. Both of us are nuclear powered people who have a high need to feel useful. Plus I am OCD about dishwashing. I am OCD about some other things too but dishwashing is one of the things that I don’t forcibly banish to the shadows. Just ask UKW how many times I washed the dishes when we were out on Lopez. She had to stage an intervention to save her cast iron pans!

There are plenty of other people around here who also want to be useful and it’s a challenge because we want guests and family members who have way too little time to visit to chill out and enjoy the loverly beach weather. Another fog bank coming in? Yes. But part of the fun of being here is hanging out kitchen dancing and picking blueberries and running like hell to put the garbage out when Our Northern Correspondent texts to say something like, “If you have garbage, the truck is about to come by.” Pooh said she saw a streak of tie-dye flash by from the Old Cabin breakfast table. That was me, running out to the garage to grab my bag of garbage and drive it up the road — seatbelt, driver’s license and shoes be damned.

It’s a balance but for now I am loving having a whole bunch of family around and that is about all I have to say for tonight. Except that heehee, some wedding folks came into the wrong driveway (ours) tonight. Nope, it’s one more driveway down. Love.

    If I ever visit, you can do as many dishes as you want because I hate hand washing them. đŸ™‚ It sounds like you’re having a loverly time and many adventures.

    Loved the fox-eating-camera video. Wonder if the camera was prepped by someone with greazy bologna sandwich fingers or similarĂ¢â‚¬Â¦.
