Shaved, really.

She went to stay with her grandmother and came back with some snazzy sneakers. When I asked her, she said she had to really fight with Grandma to get them, because her grandmother didn't want her buying from the boy's side of the aisle and told her she's "too young to make the decision" to have her hair styled the way she does.

I do not pretend to understand this mindset. It's hair, which is what I told Ana.

Which was then topped off with a second application of shitty news. I don't really want to get into the details, but suffice to say I completely lost my appetite for lunch, which was a gyro and ought to have been delicious.

Also, went to Home Depot. They're selling 3D printers, or you can use theirs as a demonstration. The writing next to the demo caused me to make a stunning realization, one I have been completely unaware of since the 10th grade. Drafting wasn't a complete and total waste of time after all!

Damn, if I could go back in time and smack myself into passing that class, I would. But I couldn't. A lot of awful things caught up to me my sophomore year, and having a sucky class first period was not something I could cope with. Some of the reasons I failed were beyond my control, most were the sort of things that ought to not have been beyond my control, but really, kinda were. Drafting, ladies and gentlemen, is a good 73% of the reason I transferred out of Stuy. And now I find out that it could've been useful. Fuck it all to hell.

To sum up, I am eating a bialy for late dinner. That made my day a little better.

What IS it with that word? In the 29-odd years since I learned to read, I don't think I encountered that word once until this last year. And now I've seen it no less than 4 times since January!

Now, the first time I was pleased to encounter a word that was truly new to me, new enough that I had to look it up. I'm always happy to build my vocabulary, and like my much vaunted typing speed, my vocabulary is at a point where it's hard to see any improvement. Unless I am reading very technical articles, and thus vastly improving my knowledge of specialist terms regarding science subfields, I rarely encounter unknown words in the wild. (This is perhaps exacerbated by my habit of reading the dictionary, but what can I do? I like the dictionary.)

Times two and three surprised me, but I chalked it up to a frequency illusion. Now that I'm at time four, I'm getting outright baffled. Did everybody know this word but me? Was it in some inordinately popular word-of-the-day calendar, and if I look at the Google N-grams I'm gonna see some spike in 2015? Did it appear on the SATs in 2013, and everybody decided to help the kid next door study for the test last year and this? DID I STEP INTO A PARALLEL UNIVERSE WHERE EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS WORD? There has got to be a rational answer for the fact that it's all of a sudden everywhere, but damned if I can see it.

Inchoate. It's not even a bad word (though it looks funny), but I'm so perplexed.

So, as everybody has heard, Target isn't separating it's toys and bedding into "girl" and "boy" sections anymore. My reaction was "Oh, hey, great. Whoop-de-doo." Other people's reaction was more like "Oh! Hey, great! Whoop-de-doo!!!!" but, you know, without the sarcasm. These are both understandable reactions.

Perhaps predictably, or perhaps surprisingly, there are the other people, who look upon this as the unheralded fifth horseman of the apocalypse. In one breath they both proclaim how obvious it is that boys and girls are DIFFERENT, DAMNIT! and profess their total inability to determine which toy goes to which kid without a color coded map and strict gender segregation, preferably with an actual wall between areas. They swear up and down that they and THEIR kids never EVER wanted the WRONG toy (well, yes, most children are amply socialized in gender norms and then some) and then predict how soon the downfall of civilization is going to come once girls realize they can play with trucks. Oh, heavens, won't somebody think of the children???

Nitwits. Were it not for laughing, I should pity them. If ever there were a time to answer fools according to their folly, now is surely that time.
