this morning in bed, she was acting precisely like a little chimpanzee. she was hooting like one and bouncing like one and exhibiting the screaming, biting behaviors of one. she is really into biting my left shoulder and upper arm. she has this technique where she bites with a hair less pressure than is required to break the skin and this leaves an invisible bruise. a crafy one. i will say things like, "no! ouch! no, violet!" and she giggles and laughs and bites again. i must be pretty tasty because i went through quite a few bites with oliver as well. he preferred mommy meat to other kinds of meat. it was such a terrifying honor. he would run to me as fast as he could, throw his arms around me, and bite the shit out of me. i would flinch everytime he came in from a landing not knowing if it would result in teeth marks. of course, it hasn't been all that long since he bit my ass for blocking the fridge and nearly broke the skin.
we took violet and her insane asylum brother to the Y this morning. it was my third trip this week, thank you very much. we ate lunch and i think i took a thirty minute nap. oliver took a zero minute nap. he was blazing around here in supreme excitement when he heard the news that daddy was taking him to the other Y for family swim time. i stayed here with the monkey to make a double batch of seitan so we'll have plenty to take for bbq at my sister's this week.
i might be going to the disco with darren to belatedly celebrate his birthday tonight. wish me luck.
