Don’t You Love It When People Are Really, Really, Unambiguously Into You?

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

In the adult world, people don't clap when you enter a room.  It's a shame really, that lack of boisterous enthusiasm for other human beings.  That's why I'm always happy that Poppy is always happy to see me.  It's quite refreshing when someone applauds and yells 'yaaaayyy' upon your arrival.  Whenever I go to pick her up from Mommy's Day Out (that's just a euphemism for 'daycare' that was invented to make the institution more palatable) she's generally pretty busy doin' her work and playing with her friends.  When she does look up and see me standing there it's always the same sunny salutation – with the clapping and the 'yyaaaayyy' – and it makes me feel like I'm doing something* right. 


*Even if 'that thing' is merely the effective cultivation of a 1 person fan club.  Still counts.
