Ah, Teri...munchkin. You look so pensive. Imagine me there, forcefully bundling you up in a terrycloth robe, running a hot bath with scented oil, candlelight and a *large* glass of mellow red wine--scratch large glass; substitute carafe--and pouring you into the tub. Your frantic assertions that you're FINE, #!$!!%! DAMN IT! would be expertly ignored, as I tie up and ducktape the spawn and hubby in a back room. "No thoughts of product, jobs, NOTHING financial or troubling. And especially no MATH!" I'd yell through the door, then put Sarah M on the stereo and tiptoe out, closing the front door softly.

Of course I'd be back later to make you watch horror movies with me.

Auntie Jude said...

...this, because I love you.

[now you know why my sons run away from me screaming when they see me coming]

It looks like the computer took a picture of you whilst you were reading something. Your eyes are not focused on the camera, but on something else.

Jess Riley said...

It looks like you're reading something fascinating. Or are you playing poker? ;)

Teri M. said...

AuntieJ: It all sounds good to me. :)

Meno: I took it with my cellphone, and it seemed that no matter where I was looking it looked as if I wasn't looking at it. (and YAY - you used "whilst"! Hee!)

Jess: Can you believe that with that poker face, I don't actually know how to play?

NCE said...

I know that look, I love you! Mom

Katherine said...

Well don't you just have the cutest nose evah?! What are you thinking about? Something very serious like how many books you can get away with reading whilst pretending to "shelve" them at B&N?

1. You look about 12 years old. Good God, woman, what pill are you taking?

2. Good luck at your job. You'll look better than the kids 15 years younger than you. Why? Refer to #1.

3. I want an Aunt Jude, too. Is she in the market for 6 foot 1 adopted nieces? I don't have much money, but I can make her laugh and supply her with duct tape.

Ha! I was about to say you looked 12, then I read MamaP. Isn't that strange that I had picked the same age? It must be true!

Auntie Jude said...

Mama P...how astute of you! She IS 12 years old. Matured at a very early age. A scientific conundrum, is our Teri. We've come to accept it...

Re adoption: Your comments are some of my favorite...can't tell you how often you've made me snarf my coffee, welcomed laughter on a cold morning. I'm having papers drawn up, and my will revised to include you, beloved new niece. How do you feel about Englebert Humperdinck: the Complete Collection?

Mel said...

You have beautiful eyes!
I say this because they remind me of my older girl's eyes... so therefore they are of course beautiful.
:)

Mama P said...

Auntie Jude - I will take the Humperdink, but only if you'll send it with a copy of Hasselhoff's "Get out of My car". You a funny gal. Funny funny funny. Thanks.

Teri M. said...

Mom: I love you too! :)

MamaP: Awww, shucks... I'm blushing. Actually, a grainy picture and coke bottle glasses hide a multitude of fine lines and gray hairs. Although, if I wasn't actually 12, I would probably be able to accept compliments with a little more grace. (And Good Lord, but my co-workers are mostly young. And as Auntie J seems to be amenable, the more the merrier!

Bo: Too funny - great minds and all that. ;)

Mel: Excellent! (Once, when we were dating, The Spouse said my eyes reminded him of his dog's. He did actually mean it as a compliment.)

Teri M. said...

Katherine: Whoops... missed ya there... it's cuz I'm sleepy!! I am rather happy with the nose. Did you see the freckles? LOL Don't I wish I had time to read whilst (extra points to you for using that word!)shelving. Though I have decided that I need to carry a pad and pencil with me to jot down the names of books that look good.
