Oliver Gets Dance Fever

Ever had one of those moments with a family member where you think, "Now where did THAT come from?" It happened with my son, Oliver, during March Around the World, an annual cultural/educational event at his elementary school that my wife organizes. Some of her international students teach the children about an aspect of culture and lead them in a related, interactive activity. I took the brief video below during a session on Bollywood dancing.

Moments of Genius #1: Toothpaste Snack

Some years back, I went to a new dentist after mine retired, and I was horrified to learn at my first visit that I had many cavities. Since then, I've kept a toothbrush and toothpaste at work so I can brush after eating sweets.

I have this weird habit of brushing at my desk for a bit while looking at work stuff on my computer and then taking my toothbrush to the bathroom to finish and rinse. Today in the middle of this, a coworker entered my office and began talking to me. I had no choice but to feign laryngitis or swallow everything. I chose the latter. Really gross.

Maybe one day I'll grow up.
