Look here, people. The other sisters have weighed in this week on important topics. Ellen covered birth; Rose covered entertainment and Aristotelian thought; Jane talked about living thousands of miles from loved ones.
Here’s the thing. I don’t have much of anything important to say. Well, it is important but frankly I’m so convinced I’m right about everything, I’ve little time or incentive to formulate cohesive arguments about anything.
For example, if you asked me “Claire, the world wants to know if you would give birth at home. If not, why?”
My first response to this question would be to snort at the outrageousness of it. Give birth at home? Anyone who has seen what happens during childbirth should be against this sort of thing. Birth should only happen in a place with medical-grade cleaning products readily available.
Also, safety and blah, blah, blah.
What did you think of the 2014 Winter Olympics?
I loved the Bruno Mars half-time show!
What is your favorite album of all time?
Bill Cosby comedy albums. Seriously, all my internal conversations with the Almighty sound a lot like Bill Cosby’s imagined conversation between Noah and God: lots of protesting about how good I’ve been followed by arguments about how hard I’ve been working.
I hear you’re taking physiology. Why?
It’s awesome to be able to tell my kids “I can’t play with you right now, I have to study the cardiac pump.” This is so much better than “I can’t play with you right now, I have to, um, check my blogs?!?”
You’re constantly working on your house. What’s your latest project?
Hanging this sign above the kitchen sink (it was required by New York State’s Health and Safety laws):
Are your children healthy?
Mentally or physically? This question is too complicated.
How are your children?
Prime examples of awesomeness. See below:
And, no picture of this, but Carmela took the initiative this morning to open the freezer and help herself to a chocolate-covered banana.
Cheers, people of the internets!
