Our Sunroom Defies All Logic

January 2009:
Spencer was playing with a Super Bouncy Ball.  He called out, "Mom! My ball just went in a cup."  What?  Oh!  By "cup" you mean "crystal glass".  I see.

Yep.  Those are two glass shelves of crystal.  And a Super Bouncy Ball.
(This incident is also known as "The day a miracle
super-ball-bounce saved Spencer Johnson's life.")

July 2010:
Shawn and I were finally putting the house back together from a couples baby shower we threw this weekend.  (Don't judge - it had only been four days.) As I was walking toward our bedroom (past the same bar where the "miracle bounce" occurred), Shawn said, "Hey babe?  Can you please put these Tums* away when you walk by the bathroom?"  Sure.  I turned so he could throw them to me and...

Truly, we have a logic defying sunroom.

*That's what a rockin' good party the Johnsons throw - so good that people get indigestion!  And, yes, yes.  Technically, they are not "Tums".  They are Equate brand Antacid Tablets.  See also:  Ali is cheap.

Your sun room is a rock star! Not only do I love miracles, I love it when people take pictures of them and put them on their blog.

I think your sun room may actually be the Bermuda Triangle. Or one of those portals to the world of the undead, like in Poltergeist. Either way, can I come over and play with your crystal glasses?

Ali said...

Nanny Goats in Panties - I think the most common phrase said at my house is, "Oh my gosh. I have to take a picture of THAT."

JD - I feel so much better to have an explanation. But, I probably shouldn't have shared the "portal to the other side" with my husband - now he won't even walk through there... wuss.

I absolutely loved "The day a miracle
super-ball-bounce saved Spencer Johnson's life." That would be an awesome name for a book.

Ali said...

thanks, cardiogirl! unfortunately, i don't think a lot of publishers are interested in a book with a great title yet one page of content. well, maybe i could get someone to do an awesome intro and up the page count to 5 or so. then, there could be acknowledgements at the end. still... i think it would be a hard sell. ;)
