starting the weekend off on a good note

today, i am feeling can't-help-but-have-a-wee-billion-watt-smile-on-at-all-times happy. because yesterday i came home and there was something and someone in the house, and i'd been waiting two and a half years for this exact moment, for this exact someone and this exact something to be in this exact place.
i'm exactly happy.

[besides the fact that this morning, my hot chocolate tastes like swamp water. that is disgusting.]

but the point is not that.
the point is that karz called yesterday shortly after i got home and i made her guess what the something in my house was, because i love making people guess things.
i excitedly gave her hints, and barclay chimed in with his own from the kitchen where he was making supper:

"it's got some really sharp places."
"and some really flat places too."
"hammers!"
"it's black and white and brown all over."
"strings and pedals!"
"keys, but no locks."

she guessed computer, coat rack, couch, and tv before she guessed what it actually was. i don't think she was listening to my clues very well.

Hoo boy I wish I had a piano in my house right now. I miss playing. There's one at my parents', but I guess being a student, a piano wouldn't be such a smart purchase. Hahaha, enjoy the new addition to your family! :-)

Okay, I did not get it, but that was b/c I was confused by the clues! I thought hammers was one of Carly's answers, as was "strings and pedals." So maybe I'm not so bright. But NOW I get it. (I'm half blaming you though for my ignorance!) :)
