It was fun, I tell you.
I soon discovered that avoidance of food = avoidance of pain. This is NOT my usual modus operandi. Usually, I live by the creed: Food is the most reliable fun you can have.
And I don't think I'm wrong about that...
So -- it was a departure from my regular routine, and a bunch of things I intended to do were put to the side while I tried to avoid pain, and sustain enough energy to do what had to be done. Bad timing what with it being Easter weekend and all.
I missed the Honcoop Family Easter Gathering. While I was feasting on juice & crackers, they were having this:
And I missed seeing all of this:
Uncle Dill reading to Miss Brielle.
Uncle Ran trying to steal Miss Madelyn's dessert.
Nope -- I didn't see any of it, but fortunately I sent my own personal photographer (Thanks, Cait!) to document all the fun I was missing. It was almost like I was there...
No, it wasn't.
I was told that I was missed, which did my heart good, though I know that had I not sent along the deviled eggs they would have been missed more than I...
But that's okay, because that's one of the ways I say to The Family that I love them...deviled eggs.
Because it's true: Food is the most reliable fun you can have.
...most of the time.
I look forward to living by my conviction once again.
