They Snabsgork Me! They Really Snabsgork Me!

My kids are the best! The “tea and cookies” themed gifts from Emma and Henry are awesome–who knew that they made a corgi-shaped cookie cutter?

From Kiwi: Art, of course. It’s supposed to be for Joe’s and my 20th anniversary this year, but that’s not until November, so she presented it early.

Philosophy of Fate, or, \

In case you didn’t already know, we met 25 years ago at Indiana University’s Philosophy Institute for high school students. When I was, um, Kiwi’s age.  Twenty years of marriage and four kids later . . . .

Handsome Monk’s present to me was literary: A poem.

These lousy rhymes cannot express
Your careful, loving tenderness.
Nor can English yet spell out
Exactly what you think about
Whenever you hold Henry tight
Or kiss strong, handsome Mark goodnight.
There aren’t yet words for how you feel
When handsome Mark says “What’s the deal?”
Because Gilmore Girls is on;
So handsome Mark begins to yawn,
But Emma watches, entertained
And Kira’s joy is unconstrained
And you watch with them happily
And Mark survives, uncannnily,
To write this poem, saying how
Long sentences, up until now,
Could not express the way that you
Love your kids, and love Mark, too.
Aha! Solutions to expressing
Love in words are now progressing
In my mind! I’ve got it now!
I’ll make new words, and thus allow
The concept of love to be said
Or shouted or whispered or written or read.
These words will include creations such as
Hobdifginsnork and shtobledyras.
Words like zamhoik and lobneiserray
Will soon be the kindest words someone can say.
So this Mothers’ Day, I hope you do
