Letters from Wainaina, Leniel and Josphat
The Philosophy of Juice & Crackers
June 14, 2015
to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9
questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other
times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random
questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts
and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We
hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
I got a weekly allowance (small...I don't remember how much but less than
$1) and I also babysat (25 cents an hour for 2 kids)
Can't remember. I almost never order anything
alcoholic, but if I did order something it was probably a gin and tonic.
It gives a false impression to say,
truthfully, that it rained two days ago. California is going through
it's 3rd or 4th year of drought and the "rain" we had was hardly enough to
wet the sidewalk. We need rain!
I always write my notes for "Today at Logos" in pen, in my own version of
Logos shorthand, a combination of Gregg shorthand (of which I know a very
little), my own shorthand, and figures I have made for words (like the
outline of a hat for "hat." Mostly this is so that nobody looking over
my shoulder can figure out what I've written!
I want to say "Macbeth," the
first name that came to mind, but it's bad luck to utter that word.
And "The Scottish play" is not a character!
Where we live is very flat, very safe and very, very walkable, if you are
energetic enough to get off your fat butt and walk it (I, sadly, am not)
My mother, sister and I went to Disneyland about the year after it opened,
after I'd won 5th place in an essay contest, my prize being a one-way ticket
on a luxury liner, to Los Angeles. We went to Disneyland then flew
home--my first ride on a plane. Since then we have been there
countless times, with each kid once between their 4th and 5th birthdays, with
most of the foreigners we had living with us, and a couple of times as
chaperones for the Jazz Choir, which performed there. My last time was
in 2000, when Peggy was visiting here. I have seen enough of
Disneyland to last me the rest of my life.
Good lord, no. Never had the desire.
I don't believe I have.
