Saturday was my birthday celebration, and we started off with an informal and tasty potluck at Peach's place. I was pleased that about seven of my fellow speechies-in-training came to the party, to get to see how I behave in my normal environment and to prove to myself and my other friends that I'm capable of making friends outside the context of choir. They were pretty starved for entertainment, though:
Me: JAGO! (as Jago arrives)
EmC: Oh good!
Christina: Now you can sing for us!
Jago and I: Uuuhhh...
EmC: Come on.
Me: Seriously, we don't even have 50% of the group.
The highlight of the night was a two-way tie: either Jago performing a Junior Senior song at Karaoke, or watching a couch full of SLP students observe seven-month-old E as she played with her toys, trying to give her plenty of meaningful linguistic input while making sure it was within her zone of proximal development. I mean, really people: can't we take one day off?
