Growing up in a house of busy bodies -- there were five of us -- I heard the words, "Julia, stay on task!" all. the. time. I think this was my mother's way of saying, "My head is about to spin around seven times before exploding into the sky, would you put your damn shoes on." Just a thought.
After hearing it about 6,750 times it became part of my vocabulary -- for better or for worse. I basically say it to Cooper and Mason when they start a project and then loose their little attentions to another shining object. So it should come as no surprise that when I employed Cooper to help me with cutting out the 26 pieces of his costume -- a long and arduous process -- I heard him realign himself with...
"Oh Man! I'm way off task."
PS -- I won't bore you with Halloween nonsense anymore, well, until Oct. 1, 2011.
