Can't Get Enough

Is it too soon? I just revisited this amazing website. If you haven't already, really, you need to consider adding this to your reader. I know I will.

I didn't watch The Bachelorette this season. But I followed it loosely through my mom and friends who were enamored with Jill and all the suitors. It is Jill, right? The day after the finale I turned on the TV downstairs while Gus was playing and caught about 30 minutes of a Bachelorette marathon, the episode just before the finale, her final dates with Ed and Kypton. I was only mildly interested and Gus was less than that. He merely popped his head up a few times to look at the screen.

The next day Gus was sitting on the kitchen island as he usually does and happened to put a small mixing bowl on his head, which fit nicely as a helmet. He grabbed a hanger and brandished it into the air proclaiming "I'm Kypton Betty-sword." (Amazing and scary how the name Kypton just soaked into his head - and I have no clue where Betty-sword came from.)

We laughed about it a lot and told a few friends and family. And because of this Gus has continued working with this Betty-sword character. Tonight he found these tights in my closet (purchased with the intent of making sock animals) and Kypton Betty-sword came out again.
