Move that body: 2.67-mile walk with Denali
Lesson No. 1: It is not wise to try to wrangle your beast of a dog, water bottle, iPod and camera on a walk. It will not turn out well.
Lesson No. 2: Dropping a camera while it’s on may result in a zoom error that costs more than a new camera to fix.
Lesson No. 3: A touch screen camera like you’re used costs $50 more than the cuter blue camera with the same features (same brand).
Lesson No. 4: Electricity is awesome. Very awesome. As are the things electricity powers – air conditioning, stove, fridge, lights.
Lesson No. 5: When power goes on the fritz, you don’t always have to say “it’s an old house” and cringe as you call an electrician. Sometimes you should call the power company, which is struggling with overloaded circuits because it’s 97
Lesson No. 6: Drinking Diet Coke at 9 p.m. is not smart. It does not make you pee less or make your strange dreams nicer. Nope. It seems to only exploit those joys of pregnancy. Just ask my bladder … and Mark, whom I was physically removing from the house in last night’s scenarios.
Lesson No. 7: There are only two reasons to watch “The Voice.” First, to listen to him:
Nakia, you can serenade me anytime. I don’t care if I’m knocked up and so not your type. Have you heard that I bake the bestest cupcakes ever?
And to look at him:
Blake, you’re included. I don’t care if I’m knocked up and you just got married. Have you heard that I bake the bestest cupcakes ever? And I just got a new blue camera?
