"E-lec-tri-cit-y! Energize me!" - Midnight Star

Halfway Between starts his secondary robotics camp at UWF today.

A friend arrived for carpooling, and I mentioned that I was glad that Halfway would have a dancing partner.

"Dancing?" He asked.

"Yeah. I never could do 'the robot' myself. Maybe you can teach it to me when you're done. . ."

His friend looked perplexed. . .then offered, "Mrs. McKnight, I think we're going to BUILD a robot."


I keep thinking about all those Disney movies where the kids develop a robot and antics ensue, then things go awry and the crazy parents come in and save the day.

Of course, Disney movies aren't "real life." We've never actually developed a robot.

However, the crazy parent thing is covered.

I escorted them to the classroom and checked them in. Before I left, I couldn't help but offer Halfway Between a discreet air kiss so as not to embarrass him. It's important to be aware of that kind of stuff.

I turned and walked to the door, and added, "You boys look so grown-up and collegiate!"

I'm sure they appreciated my thoughtfulness.

So, now that I'm thinking about doing the robot, I feel energized. . .anybody want to dance with me??


Have fun!
