men without hats

Evan (walking along with the top of an acorn on his head): "That would be funny if you were a really bad artist who couldn't make any money -- like, your paintings were really lame -- and you couldn't even afford a beret. And so you had to travel around looking for a giant acorn, so that you could wear its top as a beret. But you couldn't find one. And so you just had to keep putting the tops of regular-sized acorns on your head and trying to keep them from falling off."

helpful hints

It's now 'H' week in Sage's class, and Evan is once again helping her brainstorm things that she could take in -- or do -- for Show & Share. His suggestions so far have included:

* acting "really hateful"
* wearing earplugs ("hard of hearing")
* going in with "horrible hair"

Sage: "I'm going to sing the breakup song to Boden. Because I'm breaking up with him."

Eric: "As I said, Sage, I'm afraid that's going to hurt Boden's feelings. He might not even know he's your boyfriend, and all of a sudden you're breaking up with him."

Sage: "He does know, because I told him today."

Eric: "You told him he was your boyfriend just so you could sing the breakup song to him tomorrow?"

Sage: "No, the day after tomorrow."

Sage: "It's 'G' week at school."

Eric: "Okay. So we'll need to find something that starts with 'G' for you to take in on Friday."

Evan: "Grime!"

Eric: "Grime?"

Evan: "Or she could just take herself in: greedy."

i got nothin'

Sorry the blog's been quiet recently. It's my memory that's failing, not Evan and Sage, who are as entertaining as ever. In lieu of a funny line, here's Evan loving the racetrack at a local hobby shop:
