17/April/2015, Day 107. Friday.
It was the day after Kuya's birthday, so today (through no fault of its own), was a bit of an after-thought. It didn't help matters that it rained all day.
After a mostly normal day, (Grump hustled at work, but not insanely so; Kuya had a sluggish day at school), Kuya and Dodong were put to bed early, then Sweetie dragged Old Grump off to Bible study. They didn't get home until (relatively) late, so both got in bed late.
While the events of the day weren't particularly spectacular, it is worth pointing out the theme of the day, (and many days to come, I suppose), which is: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Kuya got some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys for his birthday yesterday, and now all his waking moments at home are infused with "turtleness".
Oddly enough, Grump remembers back when he was this age, (half a century ago!), living in Ohio, and how he briefly enjoyed having two small turles as pets. They didn't live very long, (none of us really knew how to care for turtles - Grandpa had bought them for Grump on a whim), but while they did they were fun!
So here's the moral of this little post: if you have a young child at home, you too can head over to Amazon and fill your house with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys and paraphenalia, or you can download the clickbank ebook on how to keep a pet turtle alive. Good luck!
