Yesterday morning, I published my 1000th blog post on my 1000th consecutive day of blogging.
“Blogging” means web logging and, yes, I have blogged for every day since January 1, 2013, through health and illness, sun and snow, fears and relief, ups and downs.
That’s our cat Oscar, seeming to celebrate my 1000th day of blogging.
That’s Oscar again, pressing the power switch on my lap top, turning it off, on, off, and then on.
What’s that? Somebody allows their cat to step on their laptop?
There’s really nothing I can do to stop Oscar from being right there, wherever I am. So, I just take photos of him using my computer and post them on his Facebook page.
What’s that? A cat has his own Facebook page?
Have you seen Facebook lately?
Yesterday, in the middle of a beautiful day, my 17-year-old son Aaron and I went to Brookline, Massachusetts.
Brookline, Massachusetts is a town almost completely surrounded by Boston, Massachusetts, with great schools and restaurants. Aaron and I went there yesterday to have lunch and walk around while he worked on his comedy routine for an important appearance at a Cambridge comedy club last night.
Yes, my 17 year-old son does stand-up comedy. Isn’t that amazing?
Before I took my first photo in Brookline, Massachusetts yesterday, I said to Aaron, “What’s that?”
Aaron took a break from trying to memorize his comedy set to reply, “It’s money and outer space.”
As I’m writing this, I realize that whenever I take a picture, it’s because — in some way — I’m asking “What’s that?”
I shall now present all the other photos I took yesterday, in chronological order.
That means I’m including the pictures in the order I took them. Feel free to ask “What’s that?” about any of them, in a comment below.
The last few shots are of last night’s super moon lunar eclipse. If you don’t know what that is, you could look it up.
What’s that? I hear my readers exclaim, as if in unison. YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PHOTOS OF YOUR ONLY CHILD PERFORMING HIS COMEDY ROUTINE FROM LAST NIGHT?
Well, the Comedy Studio didn’t allow patrons to use their cell phones once the comedy show began. However, Aaron got a DVD of his entire routine, created by the staff there.
What’s that strange word the host used to introduce Aaron last night? Ignore that, and just enjoy my son in his first performance at the well-known Comedy Studio, located above the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square.
What’s that? Those are the first exchanges, on OkCupid five years ago, between me and my boyfriend Michael.
What’s that? I haven’t expressed gratitude to anybody yet, in this blog post?
Many thanks to Aaron, Michael, Oscar, the Comedy Studio, Rick Jenkins (the owner of the Comedy Studio), Brookline, Cambridge, the moon, and every person, animal, place and thing that helped me create my 1001st blog post, today. And special thanks to you — of course! — for visiting, here and now.
