Remember how I've talked about noticing patterns in the past? (Like this post where I talked about tuna.) Well, last night I posted a few pictures from Halloween on Facebook. I had one where Michael took a picture of me pretending to climb a tree. I'd gotten to his house early so we took a few pictures while waiting for it to get dusky enough for trick or treating. (It's this picture for those who are able to see my Facebook photos.) Anyway, one of my doctor friends joked that it was cute, but he'd advise against it so I joked that yeah I might break my arm and have to visit a doctor.
A few hours later I was mowing the yard and thinking of climbing trees
and wondering if kids even did that any more. I remember climbing trees
at my great grandmother's house. My cousins and I had fun hiding out up
But then a couple hours later I was talking to my mom and she was
telling me about one of her fifth grade students who was absent today.
Turns out the kid was *cue spooky music* climbing a tree before trick or treating!
And broke his arm!
I just thought that was weird enough to share.
In other news, Lipstick Jihad was a really good book and I
enjoyed learning about the author's experiences in Iran. I never knew
Iranians were so much like Americans in many ways.
