Youngest gel is taking what amounts to a home-ec class in 7th grade this year.  (Robbo heartily approves of this.  It beats the hell out of sexual identity politicks brainwashing, although I’m sure that’s coming, too.)  Yesterday she said, “Wow.  Mortgages and taxes and utility bills and all that… guys sure pay a lot of money!”

Mrs. Robbo is in Flahridah this weekend for her mother’s 70th, so Oldest Gel is driving her sistahs to their various parties and activities today.  A short while ago, after rehearsing her list of pick ups and drop offs, she said, “It’s like I’m spending the entire day in the car running around in circles!”
