Today was– this is kind of hard to believe, but it’s true– one of my first moments where one of my friends was in town and we had to come up with activities to Entertain our Kids while they were here, because we’re all adults with kids now. She has a six-year-old who I haven’t seen in forever and a three-year-old who I met for the first time today, and luckily the three of them appear to have gelled together perfectly well.
An excellent suggestion for this sort of scenario: take the kids to the local House of Bounce, especially since it’s Friday afternoon and we are going to be the only ones there. Having a big room with four giant inflatables in it is really awesome; the kids can run about to their hearts’ content and exhaust themselves, which means that we get to spend the rest of the afternoon… uh, staring into devices and such. Like grown-ups.
For those of you who have read my books: who the hell knows when the next Benevolence Archives book is going to get done. It’s been languishing for, literally, months. I know what else I have to write, I just haven’t done it, because <insert excuse here.>
But the cover is done. It’s been done for a while.
Anybody wanna see it?
