Not sure why I got "blog duty" today. Sean keeps asserting his pho-thority over his crew. He is learning to be the master of omission! Remember that hostess cupcake thing? It went more like

Sean: Hey we have THREE hostess cupcakes, lets have that for desert Me: Wow, sounds great, although I thought you said the cupcakes are yours and you aren't sharing Sean: Yeah but I need to thank you all over and over again because I know you guys are really in charge Scott: That's nice of you Sean. Go get the cupcakes now. (a few minutes passes) Sean: Oh, bummer, there are only TWO cupcakes. Me: That's ok I didn't really want a cupcake anyway. Chocolate sounds better. Sean: That's nice of you. Scott: You know, chocolate sounds better anyway. Sean, why don't you eat both of them? Sean: Awesome! I never get to eat these at home!

How this turned into "I ate both cupcakes in front of the crew" I don't really get. But you know Sean.

Now that the cupcakes are gone, it's all about the rice crispy treats. That went something like this:

Sean: Wow, those rice crispy treats were AWESOME, they were covered with chocolate on one side, great! Scott: Only one of my rice crispy treats had chocolate Me: Mine too Scott: Sean, I think there are two different kinds, you'll have to have no chocolate on both of yours today to make up for that Sean: OK

That's Sean asserting his pho-thority.

Anyway, we are using the motor sometimes, and the wind sometimes. The wind seems to calm as we watch our movie. Tonight we're watching the Pink Panther.
