This is more like a week in photos. Work with me.
My cherry tomato plant is still thriving, even into November! Perhaps bucket planting is the way to go next year.
Tooth fairy time, round 2. In an unexpected turn of events, she let it be pulled out by her Papa. Shocking. I was no part of any of these festivities. Teeth – when they’re not in a mouth – gross me out. $2 later, we have a winner.
There was also a week of drug-free activities, aka Red Ribbon Week. I’m still a little confused by this and I believe many memes already exist but I’m going to say it anyway…no one (I repeat, no one) has ever offered me drugs. I was offered cigarettes a lot, but not like real, illegal drugs. Maybe cocaine was too rich then. Anyway, just say no.
I digress. One of the week’s dress up days consisted of pajama day! My workplace really needs to get it together. Since I got to take my mini to school that day, we stopped for coffee first. Because no pajama day is complete without a huge coffee.
Edit: I heard, errr read, about National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, a nonprofit that challenges writers to complete 50,000 words in the month of November (roughly 1667 words daily). So it’s like a running streak, but writing instead. If you’re reading this, then you may/may not know today is November 1st. The organization encourages writers to participate in the daily goal in order to complete a novel, but many use it to brainstorm blog posts, etc. Always up for a good writing task. Let’s see how this goes!
Thank you to https://brianlageose.blog/2021/10/30/friday-night-clam-bake-35-its-almost-the-time-of-year-when-i-do-that-questionable-thing-that-confuses-most-people/ for the idea!
I ask you –
Are any of your vegetables still alive?
What’s the going rate for a tooth nowadays? I think I’m getting scammed.
Tell me something funny about your week!

After seeing the $2 USD:tooth exchange rate, I was about to ask if that is the going rate. Some of my friends have been giving their kids about $5 for a tooth . . .you know, because of inflation. 😉
What’s funny about my week. Let me see.
Over the weekend, I gave my gen bio class its second test. Sometimes, I get a bit lazy writing the questions so I put a freebie question on the exam. The multiple choice “question” – Pick False. Please tell me why some of the students selected true?
$5?!? That’s robbery! (Though I heard the same from a friend/parent.)
Oh wow. Makes you question your sanity when some people just don’t. get. it.

Usually it was whatever I had in my wallet. 🦷
Thanks for the mention! I do hope you give NaNoWriMo a try. As I babbled about in my post, it can be daunting, but overall it’s a lot of fun. And it gives me that kick I sometimes need to keep fiddling with my writing projects. Are you working on some stories or possibly a book? Just curious, not meaning to pry…
Thank you for sharing about it, Brian. I didn’t even know this organization existed!
I’ve been working in a book for some time. The manuscript is probably complete, but I keep adding to it. Honestly, once I’m done writing it, I don’t really know what to do next. Find a publisher? 🤷♀️
