Restless

In German they call it having a “bumblebee in your bum”. Restlessness. I like the German expression better. The weekend has passed by jerkily: movies, meals, books, and shopping.

Talking about bums... I was in a restaurant the other day and a three or four year old (precocious) girl asked her mother how you spell caca (in German, aa). The mother explained to her daughter that one does not write caca, but if she was to write it, it would be written aa. The girl spent the rest of her lunch writing aa in her soup, over and over again.
