Until today, Boo didn’t know the color of his eyes. He’s of Chinese and Mexican heritage, I bet you know the color of his eyes! His language arts assignment required him to write similes, including one about the color of his eyes. He claimed he couldn’t see his own eyes, so he didn’t know what color they are. Nope, he’s never looked at himself carefully enough in the mirror to know. So off he went to investigate and returned to tell me that his eyes are “Brown like dirt.” Good to know.
I would have gone with “as brown as chocolate.”
In completely unrelated news, it looks like the kids’ America’s Got Talent audition will be less exciting than I thought. There won’t be any judges, it’s basically a taping of their performance which the judges will view later. If they like what they see, we’ll get a call back to a live, local performance in front of an audience. So no autographs from “the Hof” for us. Also, we’re not allowed to bring cameras. I guess that’s good for the show, but it’s not good for the blog. Don’t these people know I’ve got people wanting a behind the scenes look? I wonder if it’s too late to get a press credential?
And lastly, you’ll be glad to know that my PayPal-eBay fraud claim was resolved in my favor. Turns out that someone won a computer on eBay, then hacked my PayPal account to pay for it. Since I check my email 700 several times a day, I saw the PayPal notification within 20 minutes of it coming through my email, and within 30 minutes I had a fraud claim filed. The seller had actually shipped the computer to Vietnam when he heard from PayPal saying the transaction was in dispute. He got his computer back and helped out with my dispute by telling PayPal everything he knew and he filed a complaint with eBay. eBay is pressing charges. My money is back in my account and all is well.
