This morning, heading out the door, Frost asked me what the weather would be like. I told him it would be like yesterday.
He immediately returned to his room and fetched a fleece. This was unexpected. Frost never leaves the house with a warm layer. Even in the rain, he just likes a long sleeved shirt.
"Are you cold?" I asked.
"It was very freezing yesterday in Greenlake," he said. "It looked sunny but it was like ICE! I couldn't even do crawl stroke on our challenges because I didn't want to put my face in the water."
So, Frost is suffering from Post First Swim Trauma - otherwise known as PFST - and has gone to school in fleece pants, long sleeved shirt and coat.
Wren and I were wearing sandals, insisting on a walk to the playground this morning.
"That's a ripoff! That's a total ripoff!" shouts Wren from the iPad (its iPad half-hour in the morning )
"Why's it a ripoff?"
"Because I did not win and the bad team won. Its a ripoff!"
He is iPadding while I am on hold to PSE to try and get a refund of that $6000 dollars I paid them by mistake. Oh, you don't know about that? I switched to our credit-card billpay and forgot to enter the decimal point when paying our electricity bill. The bill, for $59.89 was paid to the amount of $5989.
I now learn it will take five days to issue the refund which will be mailed to me. I wonder if this counts towards our reward points?
PFST also stands for Payment Fuckup Shock and Trauma.
