I’ll Never Know If I Really Know It

Did you lock the door, or not?

I was peeling potatoes for dinner yesterday and thinking about my next post when I suddenly realised that I have neglected a problem of a fundamental kind, a problem which questioned the entire premise of my blog – you know, the presumption that this is my Diary of Everything and here I will write down each and every truth I know about life. I sat down, my heart all cold, and forgot about potatoes for such a long time that once more dinner was served late and I was running from one room to another, stressed yet hell-bent on putting my son to bed at a not-so-ungodly hour.

Roses for those who dare to dance.

Recently my son has stopped believing in Santa Claus and started listening to Shakira; and yes, I do think that the two things are related. So yesterday, when Shakira was playing at full volume in his room, we started to dance – or not really dance but to jump and hop and shake our hands, clumsily yet eagerly, the way kids do, when they still don’t know that they should feel self-conscious and awkward.
