"Good morning. I let you have one if the nineteen pillows- you’re welcome. Also, I took the liberty of knocking over your water glass with my tail because it was too narrow for my snout and if I don’t get water, nobody gets water. Now let’s get up so you can make me breakfast. Breakfast is my favorite."
Just in case you’re wondering what happens when you throw boiling water on the air at -20. Oh, hinterland.
I don’t know what can be said about Nelson Mandela that doesn’t come off trite and sanctimonious; his will, selflessness, intelligence and grace was on a scale that is virtually unparalleled for mere mortals.
One of my favorite quotes is from JFK, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try”. Obviously, Mr. Mandela did this on a scale greater than any of us will ever even approach. I truly believe the best thing any of us can do to honor legends (whether they are world leaders like Mandela, or our own personal super heroes that no one else knows) is to try to live a life where we stand up for what we believe and live unafraid- even in our own, mundane little way.
I don’t want to alarm you, but SOMEONE might be home alone and wearing an adult onesie right now.
Don’t you judge me unless you’ve taken all the benedryl also.
If you are still working hard to detox your brain from the soulless, depths of unspeakable human (inhuman?) licentious, vitriolic depravity that is Black Thursday/Friday, this might help.

Worn Wear – a Film About the Stories We Wear
Presented by Patagonia
Directed by Keith, Lauren, Chris, and Dan Malloy
Worn Wear is an exploration of quality – in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook, New Hampshire; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features exclusive interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard.
Released as an antidote to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy, Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own.
