So, Brad’s (and Beth’s) grandma passed away this week, and the funeral was yesterday. You can read about it once Brad writes his post. (That lazybones.)
Speaking of lazy, it just goes to show that Laziness Always Wins. When Lloyd and I were in Omaha weeks ago, we found the perfect present for Brad, but I never got around to getting it in the mail. Turns out – he can just carry it back to Baltimore with him!
It’s a Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug. It has Amendments I – X on it, and when you add hot water, Amendments I, IV, most of V, VI, a bit of VII, VIII, and IX disappear. It was perfect for the boy who gets extremely upset about government issues – now he can have a hot cup of joe to illustrate his point.
