Susan has a tourniquet on her index finger. She cut herself removing an avocado pit in order to make avocado ice cream which was a recipe she found too ridiculous not to try. It called for 1/3 cup of tequila which she didn't think was appropriate for the demographic in her house, but she had no issue including two tablespoons of ginger liqueur which she regretted not increasing to three.

The morning started off with great excitement when Susan scored a 1930's typewriter on eBay for the daughter's birthday. Then she had a cup of coffee and read a number of juicy stories in her fave paper, the Post.
Go, Kerry Kennedy!
Then she cleared off her old, dead dog's grave and oversaw the son as he arranged a bunch of paving stones into a heart shape on top of it. Then she went inside and tried to chop off her finger.

Who wouldn't want this for their birthday?

Later on Susan was amused when the daughter pretended she didn't know how to pick up dog sh*t.

I would come to your house and pick up the dog poop for your daughter if I thought it'd get me that typewriter for my birthday.

Hope your finger stays attached.

I'm in love with the retro typewriter. Sorry for your social network pain, I'm still not over my MIL trying to friend me on Facebook. I didn't fall for it.

Love the typewriter! Sorry about your finger. I cut the tip off my finger when I was 17, fingerprint but not the bone. Everything grew back, but it took about a year.
