I got to showcase my Y chromosome this morning.

It's been raining around the Boston area today, so the worms have found their way out of the ground. This morning as I was dropping off my son at his day care program, and I told him that he should be careful not to step on (and kill) any of the worms on the pavement.

He saw the worms and started to freak out, so I got my inner boy on - I picked up a worm (it took a couple of tries; they're slippery!), and got him to touch it. Mission accomplished! He knows that worms aren't frightening.

And I got to play with a slick, slimy worm. Sometimes my inner boy shows.

Then again, his mother's inner boy shows when she picks up frogs for him to pet.

I like worms too! I used to pick up any I found on the street or sidewalk near my old garden and put them in the garden itself, for the good of the soil. :)

You boy, you!


Though it's good to know that I can't threaten you with worms. I'll have to move on to walking sticks or frogs instead.

Maybe I'll just pull your pigtails.

Frogs are cool. Walking sticks? Not so much. Ick. But don't ever seek to threaten me with spiders. Seriously phobic here.

The day I wear pigtails will be...well, honestly, it'll probably be the day I get a cute little schoolgirl outfit for clubbing and the like. So I guess there may be pigtails for the pulling at some point in the future. :)

And two can play at that game! Muahahaha!

Bwahahahaha! Now I know your hidden weakness, Captain Ham...er, [livejournal.com profile] badseed1980. Now to create a cybernetically controlled army of walking sticks with which to take over the wooooorrrrrld!

Oh, um... nevermind.

But don't ever seek to....

Hey, I didn't. Seriously.

OK, I have to know. Are you talking about the cute Cathiloc Schoolgirl, or the cute Anime Schoolgirl?

Probably cute Catholic Schoolgirl. I can't bring myself to squeal "KAWAII!". :)

I wouldn't expect you to try to scare me with spiders if you knew I was phobic, but not everyone knows that. I find advance warning to be a good thing sometimes. I just warned JB about it the last time I saw a spider, just because I know he loves the creepy and scary, and might not realize how much I DON'T love spiders.

So, would it make it any better if it were a zombie spider?


What are you looking at me like that for?

I see. In a conversation that already encompassed an army of cybernetically controlled walking sticks used to take over the world, this is what caused you to think I'm weird.

It's good to know where one stands.

Yeah, but I could at least picture the army of cybernetically controlled walking sticks. :)
