5 kids, 1 dog, 2 crazy parents for 6 hours straight….. It went a little like this:
So, there’s this thing called skepticon.. Dave & I tried to go. We are skeptics. GASP. There is so much that science can explain that religion cannot. Saying that, we didn’t get to see any speakers. We arrived Friday night, hung out with Rebecca Watson from Skepchick and saw Aron Ra and Matt Dillahunty but the main person PZ Meyers, didn’t show until the next day. And wouldn’t you know it, our babysitter called and Vivi was sick. We left ASAP and missed the talks. This upset me, because this was supposed to be Dave’s weekend. The people he reads are important to him… Damn it! Well, he drove the 4 hours home like a bat out of hell like Vivi was drawing her last breath. (it turns out she was simply slightly congested.) There’s always next year, I guess. Before we got there, we did go through the Exotic Animal Park. (My favorite) SO I got 50 pictures of zebras and camels and 1 of Dave and a hero of his, the friendly atheist Hemant. PZ Meyers: Dave missed you. It was important. please contact him here: email@example.com. It would mean a lot.
Halloween night was a nightmare of epic proportions. Let me tell you the horrific tale. A mom, Dr. Who, a medieval princess, and Iceland were 30 minutes from home and stuck in a moving vehicle while a tiny pirate projectile vomited a weeks worth of groceries all over everything. There was much crying from the pirate, screaming from the princess, and whining from Iceland. Luckily Dr. Who changed into his super dad outfit and pulled her out of the car so she could throw up in her halloween bucket as he took off her outfit & pitched it. Soon we were back home where dad was scrubbing out the van, I had Vivi in the bath, and eventually the others got to go trick or treating. The End.
