Justin: Just think, you were 11 years old when this show first came out.
Me: Yeah, but I didn't like this one as much. I was still a Captain Kirk fan.
Justin: Why is that? This one is so much better.
Me: Well, the original happened during more of my "childhood" days so maybe it's more sentimental to me? Once I got to be 11-12ish, I was much more interested in boys, I guess, so I didn't care so much about it.
Justin: I watched it at that age and loved it!
Me: Mehh, well. Girls mature faster than boys do.
Justin: Oh. Like chasing after boy bands like New Kids On the Block? 'Cause that's SO much more mature, right?
Me: Speaking of, did you know that Joe McIntyre was at the Boston Marathon and he crossed the finish line only 5 minutes before the bomb went off?
Justin: Did you know that I'm a bit disturbed to know that you know that? ...How do you know that?
Me: He tweeted it and then it got posted to their facebook fan page. See how mature I am?
In all seriousness, our thoughts and prayers are with the families suffering right now from this terrible act of violence. It is unimaginable to me what could make someone do such a horrific thing!
Humor is our healing balm and that's how we cope and manage around here. Finding tidbits of humor here and there...it lifts your spirits, if only the tiniest bit, offering hope and strength to live again. I pray that you will savor moments of happiness today, no matter what troubles you face.
