One more week to sumo and I can’t wait! And I’m afraid my eagerness has infected the rest of the household. While the wife and I were groggily preparing coffee and breakfast, the kids were in the living room watching “Peg + Cat” on PBS. Apparently they like this show, and my nieces like this show…which I’ve not heard of. (I’m doing a great job keeping up with my kids.)
My wife mentions, “This episode is cute because Peg goes to Japan.” I glance over into the living room and sure enough, Peg is a ninja, there’s an expert ninja pig, and a dragon is stealing sacred trees to teach the kids subtraction. There’s also a Japanese ninja friend with a stuffed animal who knows how to use ninja smoke bombs to suddenly disappear. She’s going to sneak over to where the dragon has stolen the trees so she can get them back.
Then, clear as day, I hear Pam say, “Let’s all go help Abi get the trees back from the dragon.” What? Abi? As in our Abi? The one who just had his birthday Abi? Needless to say, I put my coffee on the counter and went into the living room to watch Peg join Abi in her adventure to get the trees back. “This will make a GREAT post,” I’m thinking. I’ll even link to the website and everyone else can watch this great cartoon Abi.
Dammit, I’ve got a whole week to wait for more sumo? My poor kids, I even had them thinking her name was Abi. (Episode 121)
