Tessa and I both had fevers today. Tessa's was low-grade due to a cold. Mine was cabin due to a lack of anywhere to go. We made due by playing and whining and snuggling on the couch a lot. Tessa can totally out-whine me. We invented a new game today that I like to call the loud game. Tessa throws her head back and yells in an almost singing way, and I imitate her sound with my own yelling (I try to hit the same pitch as her and stop right when she does). This game entertained and tickled Tessa for about 10 minutes straight. She just couldn't get enough of the funny way it sounded for both of us to do that at the same time. There is no shame when you play with your toddler. You will go to great lengths to produce a giggle however undignified. Just my luck I happened to glance out the window as I threw my head back in a particularly lusty yell to make eye-contact with my neighbor's girlfriend. And after that was over, I had to ask myself, does smiling and waving in a friendly manner like nothing is amiss really make you look less crazy??
Still, I wasn't too worried. See, I happened to glance over into their house through the open window one night recently (our houses are really close together) to see the girlfriend in a very undignified position herself. And while she has no idea I saw her like that, it makes my embarrassing moment shrivel up and blow away in the hot wind of her prodigious faux pas.
On another note, did you hear about the guy that dove into the sewer after his wife's ring? It gets better. He stripped down to his underwear first. It gets even better. He didn't find it, so he came back that night with a wet suit and a strainer he made himself. Still no luck. Eventually, he hired a power vac truck to suck out the muck and dig around until they finally found it.
I was going to say something sarcastic and funny about that story, but I can't beat the story itself.
Well, ya'll stay warm!

Another girl quality Tessa has is the love of mirrors. She will talk to herself in a mirror all day if you let her. She also likes to do tricks for her mirror self as you will see in video. Yesterday, she was giving her mirror self hair tips. She tried to make her hair stand up and was pulling it to the side and laughing at the reflection. She even put on a headband and put her hands out to side as if to say, "See, I told you we look good in this!". So I had to post the video I luckily captured of Tessa entertaining her window self after dinner tonight.
