the juvenal...whose chin is not yet fledged

I didn't get everything done on my to-do list Sunday, but I was busy the whole day, so I was happy with what I did accomplish. I went to my dad's early and started a pot roast with potatoes and carrots in the crockpot. Then I came home and made a double portion of lemon chicken for Scott and I and brought half of it over to my sister's house. (My dad doesn't eat chicken or seafood or a lot of other things, so I couldn't just make a triple portion.) My sister has zero spare time what with a newborn and a toddler, and she said she was hungry when I got there, so I was glad I could do that for her.

Ryan was so cute. This was the first time since his birth that I've seen him when he is alert – usually he is sleeping. My sister had me tickle his chin because she was trying to get a photo of him smiling. He has all this baby fat, and when I tickled him, he pulled his chin in so that it disappeared into the fat and he had no chin at all. It was cracking me up. I think he may have a pointy chin when he grows up.

On Monday, they opened a brand new Johnny Rockets on El Toro which is close to our house, so we went there for dinner. When a song from Saturday Night Fever came on, the staff cranked up the volume and started doing a dance routine. It's funny enough that they do that sometimes, but it was especially funny to watch some of the middle-aged mexican men behind the counter. They knew all the moves, but they were not enthused at all about having to do them.

As we were leaving, one of the managers cheerily said, "See you tomorrow!" Scott said, "Why - do you know where I live?" But not loud enough for the guy to hear. I was laughing, though.
