Last night I finished Lumberjanes, Volume One. It's the first comic book I've read and I'm very grateful to the girls at Bookriot and to Summer Bingo for suggesting it. It's completely delightful. and very smart. I shared this snapshot of one of the chapter openings on Instagram last night. You've gotta love a comic that celebrates girls and math; there's even a scene featuring Fibonacci numbers.
Thinking about today's topic, I re-read the book and picked out all the "expletives". Not a single one is more than G-rated. I'm even thinking I might adopt a few!
2. what the junk
3. what the bejabbers
4. oh my gosh
5. good gravy
6. what the what
These last four are especially cool:
7. good Juliet Gordon Low
8. oh my Bessie Coleman
9. holy Mae Jemison
10. where the Phillis Wheatley
These are four terrific ladies - heroes all - and I'm sure they'd smile to know their names are being taken in vain!
For the rest of my Tuesday news, Charlie had a busy day here exploring every corner of my bedroom...over and over. I know it'll be a few years before he goes off to camp, but wow! these last nine months have sure flown by.
