Pool Pool , ehct

I'm receptive to ideas for kids suffering with extreme boredom.  I am having a nothing day with nothing to do.   Also, I had one of my last bagels for two years.  Yesterday I got my spacers on for braces to come in a week.  Um fun fun.  As you may know.  So now I'm sitting and thinking of my fun life in a few weeks with nothing sticky, chewy, hard, or crunchy to eat for two years.  Yep that's it but here is my hysterical comment of the day about pools.  (Every one) , if someone ever tries to get you to the pool, and you don't want to go, tell them this and that you think it's silly.
"Pools are just expensive holes in the ground filled with cement and water.  You have to slap on chemicals to not get burnt, and sit in the sun just to jump in the hole with friends."
I have to say I would rather sit here writing to you about this boring day and how it is now 63 in bar harbor and feels like 101 here.  Yep that's LIFE.  Live it.


  1. Uh-oh. Braces don't sound fun. But I think the end result of straight teeth will be worth it! You can binge on bagels in two years. In the meantime, maybe you can substitute the bagel with a breakfast smoothie or something else delicious! Good luck... let us know how it goes.

  2. Jack,

    Don't listen to Dede...breakfast smoothies...what is she thinking? Switch to donuts! Soft, greasy, sweet and delicious! Perfect braces food.

    Maybe you could reopen your coffee shop to prevent boredom. And bring back the homemade chocolate chip muffins...yum. And maybe stay open until late afternoon and serve iced coffee at the pool. Starbucks makes a fortune on their fancy coffee drinks. You could probably pick up a used espresso machine from Aunt Linda!

    Have fun sailing next week and let us know how it goes.

    Love, Aunt Mary
