Hi. It’s Gabie again. Sorry I haven’t written on my blog for a while. Thanks for tolerating my Mom in the meantime. She’s a good substitute. (She’s also a good hair cutter, Ramen Noodle warmer upper, and double-knot shoe tie-er but I don’t tell her that or it might go to her head). I’ve been busy with Important Things lately. Here’s what I’ve been doing:
Going to school. I’m in Kindergarten now so this means I have to get up so early in the morning that after Mom carries me out of bed, I have to sit in my chair for at least 10 minutes staring into the cereal bowl to warm up my brain. Sometimes Mom asks me if I’m trying to glue the bowl to the table with my laser vision but I don’t laugh. Nobody’s mom is funny at 7:30 am.
I like school. Mom says that’s a good thing since I’ve decided that I’m going to be a doctor and all. She says I only have 24 more years to go. I think I’ll be able to skip a few of those since I already know tons. I’ve read at least five books about the human body and I like to use words like cartilage and kidneys whenever I can, especially when we have stewed chicken for dinner. (I asked mom to save the bones for me so I could study them.)
I drew these pictures yesterday of my brain and my mom’s brain. Mom wanted to know why mine is all loopy and hers is all “compartmentalized” whatever that means. I said boys brains and girls brains are totally different. Duh.
Nobody else knew that my pictures were brains except mom. She said she knew because she had seen the same shape in a painting by Michelangelo (then she actually showed it to me because she’s a serious art nerd!).
Sometimes Dad lets me watch Survivorman on TV. Mom says I shouldn’t watch so much Discovery Channel, but I tell her it’s educational. This week I learned how to boil jungle roots in a tin can to get rid of foot fungus. This will come in handy if I’m ever stranded in the Amazon rain forest. You never know. That’s why it’s so important that I don’t miss any episodes.
