Adorableness

I was standing in one of the checkout lines at the grocery store last night. A mother and her young daughter, who must have been all of two years old, were in the aisle immediately to the left; the mother was dutifully scanning her groceries, and her daughter was sitting in the shopping cart. This little girl looked up and saw me, and she smiled. I smiled back. She waved at me. I waved back. Then she giggled, and it was one of those full-fledged giggles wherein she held her hands up to her mouth.

In addition to being absolutely adorable, I felt that this warranted mention because of how unusual it is. It is far more customary for children of this age bracket to look up at me with a confused, alarmed, or flat-out terrified expression that screams, "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD HE'S LIKE EIGHT FEET TALL AND HE'S GOING TO COME FOR ME IN MY SLEEP." This felt pretty sweet. I love kids.

Disclaimer: I'm only 6'4" (though a doctor claimed 6'4 1/2"). I was just speaking figuratively. :-D

Seriously, Though

Sorry about my last post. Just felt the urge to introduce some DRAMA, since I hadn't witnessed any myself. BUT! I'm a fairly inactive member of this community, which sucks. As such, I am cross-posting a reasonably informative meme about my childhood. Read it if you'd like, or not. Whichever. Baring my soul in writing is the least I can do for never baring it in other random memes, or picture posts, or activities, or etc.

Several people tagged me to fill out this 25 Things survey going around. I wrote down twenty-five random things about my first seven years. At some point, I'll go back and make lists about the following years for my own amusement, and may eventually post them somewhere. Who knows? Anyway.
