A week or so ago, I received the following email from my brother:*
go to caps site…click on kids club and scroll down to the “kids club day pictures” take a look at number 11 out of 22…….
So I did, and oh, look… there’s me in a photo I would caption “Undercaffeinated aunt is overwhelmed at Caps Kids Club event.”
Those of you who know me outside the pixelworld may have recognized the older of my two nephews escaping out the left side of the frame (he’s the one with the Ovechkin shirt and glowing sneakers). What’s not visible is the younger nephew – screened by two bigger kids – making a run at the snack table. No, I did not know this photo was taken, but I do remember that oh-shit-which-one-of-them-do-I-grab-first moment. There are no words for how, um, thrilled I am to have my moment of auntie incompetency displayed so publicly.
On the bright side, I’m just really glad it’s not a photo from this day.
Oh, and how about that inflatable chair in the sidebar? Makes me wish I had a basement sports den…
