Birthday card I received today from likealongforgottendream: "Happy Birthday. SYLAR RULES!!!" I am glad I still come first in her world. For now, anyway.
Have you ever had a cat attempt to cuddle on your shoulder, and you look at him and realize he's got two disembodied spider legs in the fur around his mouth? This is a totally, totally hypothetical question that happened to a friend of mine.
Actual conversation between my mother and me:
Mother: Your nephew just loves to manipulate things. He loves anything that he can pull apart to find out how it works. And he's extremely good at figuring out how everything works. He's just...it's like...
Me: Like he can see what makes things...tick?
Mother: Yes! That's a good way of putting it.
Me: No, it isn't. *thinking: Didn't they consider naming him Gabriel? Don't ask. Don't ask.*
