So, still in Iowa. Got woken up early today. Sleeping in is considered lazy here, but it's okay to wake up early, eat breakfast, read the paper, then go back to bed (er, "take a nap") for the rest of the afternoon ... that's accepted. Retarded. So yeah, got woken up early and washed my grandpa's antique tractors for the 10 block parade tomorrow, a celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the 200-person town's church. Also washed the '69 convertible. (see my grandpa's plan in letting me drive it? I was obliged to then wash it.)
Beat my grandma, Cole, and Ryan at Scrabble last night. Shit, and they said I don't know none of them words, ya see?
Getting better at my Iowa talk. I'm speaking it somewhat fluently in front of my family. Still too weak to use it in front of the natives, though ... they'd know I was faking it I think. I'll practice it on Blythe when I return, just to bug her.
Going swimming again now, this time at a relative's pool.
Have to go to church tonight, at a place that isn't even air-conditioned. Fun.
