Dirt by Mail

Received this email from my lovely daughter - I don't think we have to worry about too much:

P.S. Yesterday, I had lunch with a really cute guy friend of T-----d named L-----i. I ended up- somehow- spilling rice all over myself. And the table. And yes, the floor too. Just thought I should let you guys know how smooooth I am with the fellas. Tell Dad not to worry. :)

::giggling:: I am sure he found it incredibly endearing sweetheart -
what a cute email :D  Don't worry I am sure the next time you will be
better?  [or stick with the crepes, you seem to have mastered those.
heehee]  Sounds like you are having fun tho' -

She responded that yes he probably did find it [not too off putting] endearing - his response was "Is your rice attacking you?" heehee

Another email I sent Squirrel will explain Dirt by Mail:

Your compost is on the way :D

I caught your grandparents at the house yesterday [their last day
there :( ] but managed to get Nono to grab some compost for you out of
his pile.

I would say enjoy or something but um....it's dirt. heehee

Her response? Typical Squirrel:

WOOHOO! DIRT! hopefully it has a whole bunch of mycobacterium smegmatis in it (I need the baceriophage that  uses them to reproduce). So far, if it's compost, people have found m. smeg in it. So I'm betting on this one! :)

Thanks :D

And me:

Reminds me when she went to Wallops Island to do fun things like examine crawfish and field test swamp crud and exclaimed upon her return that was "Way better than Disney World."

I used to come home from anatomy class and talk to my mom about what we were dissecting and - literally - make her physically ill. She had to tell me that body parts could not be discussed. I failed to see how a little "cutting up" could be cause for concern.

LOL - love the emails
