Just a quick note to God, or the Fates, or Whatever Else might be Out There:

If ANYONE had EVER mentioned SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS to me, lo, these many years ago,


also, there is not enough Ativan on the freakin' planet.

That is all.

stay calm

ah, but this implies that i am calm to start with. of course, if calm is synonymous with manic, maybe we're okay!

did i mention that i found out last night that this is due monday? and of course, the answer to 'why didn't you mention this before???' is the time-honored, 'but mom, i thought you knew.'

when i was growing up, participation in the science fair was voluntary. whenthehell did that change, and why wasn't i consulted?

Sometimes "focused manic" equals calm. :) Believe it or not, 99 percent of the other households in his grade are also having a freak-out this weekend.

I think at some point it generally became mandatory for middle school. Here it is voluntary in high school, and only the kids who intend to become doctors or scientists participate at that level.

"focused manic." i like that. i can even achieve that. maybe.

and he has also just handed me a lovely piece of paper to sign, and a frighteningly thick notebook containing 'vital information' about what must be completed for next month's Social Studies Fair. the topic he chose? George Washington: Cincinnatus Reborn

'koda, i don't even know what that means!'
'neither do i, but it was the first topic on the list.'
