I’m visiting my parents this weekend, which means lots of Law and Order marathon watching with my dad. Since I haven’t finished the tête-à-tête I’ve been working on, here’s a copy of the birthday card I made for ol’ Chuck back in May (it’s still hanging on my parents’ refrigerator):
Doesn’t Sam Waterston/Jack McCoy have the most bizarre eyes? They look like little buttons to me. Thank GOD for his marvelous eyebrows and salt and pepper locks — they really pick up the slack. And then when he wears his slouchy knit cap and hunter green jacket in the winter episodes? Forget it! Adorable! Almost makes up for his semi-sleazy attitude toward his second chairs and his insatiable appetite for requesting the death penalty.
God, I could talk about Law and Order for days. And sometimes I do.
P.S. Look for a new tête-à-tête in the next week or two!
(Perhaps I should add that my hair did stop falling out last summer! Suck it, Ben Franklin!)

In second grade, my neighbor’s dog ate a Barbie dress that we’d carelessly left out in the basement. No one knew what happened to it until days later when the dress was discovered –WHOLE! But perhaps a little worse for wear– in one of her turds in the yard. For years, whenever I thought about this incident (often!), I always pictured the turd coming out wearing the dress.
As I got older, I realized that the likelihood of this happening was slim at best. I had grown up.
