Nora Dreher’s 14th birthday cake. Don’t ask

Fortunately for me, I didn’t see much of the debate tonight. Why? Because my daughter Nora wanted to have a picnic to celebrate her 14th birthday (which is next week, but they’re out of school for the rest of the week) outside of Torchy’s Tacos on LSU’s campus. My kids are wonderfully eccentric. Nora is going through a phase where she’s ironically preoccupied with all things Jimmy Carter. It’s a Seventies thing, I think. She chose the slogan for her birthday cake, above. Her brother Matt tried to convince her to ask the Baskin-Robbins people for the slogan “SHARIA LAW NOW!”, but Mom said no, the last thing we need now is a visit from the FBI.

Matt got some kind of machine for his recent birthday that allowed him to design and create this t-shirt for her, which she’s holding up here (as a rule, I don’t put my kids’ faces on the Internet):

A little amusing content for this blog won’t hurt you, right?

I should have pulled a Billy Carter and gone and peed on the side of Torchy’s. (For you young’uns, President Carter’s brother once urinated on an airport runway in full view of the media.) I think Nora would 100 percent agree that I am the Billy Carter of our family. No kidding, I love Billy Carter, unironically.
