Most guys in prison uniforms don't have handguns. Pablo must've worked out a sweet hush deal with the guards. Today is another feel-good day for P, and for that simple fact we are grateful, happy and breathing easy. Nana and Boo are here and did some good snuggling and hanging with P this morning. At the moment they are in Monrovia with Jo Ann, buying bday gifts for Pablo at an independent toy store. Pablo and I are headed to Velo Pasadena for a quick minute. We're all gonna meet up at the pride of Glendale—the Americana outdoor mall—to take in the child-friendly movie 'The Proposal.' I'm hoping we can take a walk around the Reservoir after dinner. It's another cool and gloomy day in LA. Most people don't like this weather, but it's my fave—especially when it comes to cycling or going outdoors with P.
By the way, Pablo borrowed a book from Dr Marsha Conner, his Chinese medicine doctor in Mt Washington. It's called 'Dumb Jokes For Smart Kids.' He's paging through it reciting jokes. He doesn't know how to read. He has memorized entire groups of jokes based on the corresponding illustrations. One page has an elephant with an umbrella. So he knows the joke is:
Q: What do you call an elephant umbrella?
A: An umbrellaphant.
I never tire of watching Pablo just be Pablo.... It's the best job in the world....
Tomorrow is Pablo's sixth birthday. I guess that makes him 5.9999 years old today!
