DaughterGeeding is a voracious reader and started to ask about the meaning of a lot of words. To my surprise, she’s never used a dictionary, so we had some father-daughter time. I know she could just ask Siri or Alexa, but I thought it was best to teach her some old school fundamentals. She finds the dictionary fascinating, so much so she takes it to bed to read at night.
Regarding my upcoming surgery, WifeGeeding and I are having a logistical disagreement. It’s on a Friday and I have to check in at 6:00 AM when the kids usually wake up for school, with surgery scheduled for 7:30 AM. Friday is a school day and we need to get the kids to school later that morning, the earliest we can drop them off is 7:15 AM. I told her the most logical thing to do is for me to simply take an Uber or a Lift to the hospital by myself and she can take the kids to school and visit me after the surgery. The issue isn’t getting someone to take the kids to school, but having someone around to watch over and help them get ready for school. I already feel like I’m inconveniencing her and don’t want to trouble anyone else with the kids. There’s nothing WifeGeeding can really do if she’s with me at the hospital anyway. I’ve been with both my mother and father for many medical procedures and know the toll it can take just sitting there waiting and not being able to do anything other than sit and wait. I don’t need the emotional support and I’ll be taken care of by professionals. She, on the other hand, wants to find someone to help with the kids and be with me at the hospital before I’m wheeled to the operating room.

I mentioned the idiom “touching wood” yesterday which is another way of using the idiom “knocking on wood”. Yesterday I heard of “touching cotton” for the first time, which means a high urgency to defecate.
I got lucky buying some over-the-counter cannabis stock just about a year ago, Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS: ACBFF). So far my return is 450.03% (chart). The stock really started to take off this past November and December.
