Enjoy your red hair


Yeah, so, I went to Shangri-La Vegan for lunch with some coworkers, because sometimes I like to pretend that I’m not a failed vegetarian.

I guess it’s not a school day, because one of the employee’s 7-year-old son was sitting at the register. He was wearing a Transformers costume (because – hey – why not?) and reading a Calvin & Hobbes book.

Me: You’re reading Calvin & Hobbes. That’s pretty cool. My son is named Calvin.
Him: Does he have a Hobbes?
Me: He does.
Him: Does he have a dreamland that he goes to?
Me: Probably, but he’s only six months old. I’ll have to ask him when he’s older.
Him: [big smile]
Me: Have a good day. Enjoy your book.
Him: Enjoy your red hair.
Me: I will!

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
