This happened in 2012.

Here is an entry log that I used, to record a day just like any other, over the past year.

8.20 a.m. Flat tire.

8.20 a.m. In another part of town, daughter #1 and daughter #2, riding a bus to school, encounter a crazy guy brandishing a 12 inch knife. Nobody steps up or calls the police, nevertheless the two girls make their way to school unharmed. They even make it on time.
I will find out about the incident twelve hours later, under a gnocchi induced hypnosis.

12.00 a.m. The plumber installs shower backwards. The only way to take a shower would be to walk through the wall. Houdini is not dead, he just switched profession!

3.00 p.m. Epic fight between Mamaspice and daughter #3.

3.45 p.m Daughter #3 runs away from home but Mamaspice doesn't even notice it.

4.05 p.m. The doorbell rings. Instead of the occasional Jehova's witness, daughter #3 is at the door.
Mamaspice wonders for a minute what was her nine year old doing outside, but she doesn't dwell on it enogh time to find an answer.
Hours later, victim of a food induced trance, the girl will confess she had been a runaway for twenty minutes.

10.05 p.m. It's all quiet, everybody is asleep. Mamaspice takes a deep breath, drinks a glass of tap water.......and it tastes like ashes (?).
Friggin' Houdini!!!!!!


2013 already looks much more promising.
It started with a fabulous New Year's Eve party done just right:
a very elegant setting;
wonderful friends;
Beethoven's keys on a grand piano on one side of the room,
Gangnam Style on the other side;
a game of musical chairs;
fake eyelashes that became fake moustache by 2 a.m........

Last night, daughter #2 even washed the dishes without being asked.

If I am asleep, please do not wake me up.

Fake lashes attempt
Gangnam Style
