Resist pressure to conform to societal norms

indian school bus, schoolchildren packed into rickshawI could barely make it home this afternoon due to being starving. At supper I said that although the pasta meal was lovely, I was full. Then I couldn't believe it when he said that I couldn't have any pudding because I was full. Doesn't he know that "Full" is a relative term and is inversely proportional to how nice the food is?

This afternoon was the climax of the cactus shipping project. The box was ready, the cacti de-potted and ready to go in. That's when we discovered there was a further 15cm of height under the gravel that hadn't been taken into consideration - you can see the lighter green bit at the bottom -  so the purpose-built bespoke shipping carton was a good 15cm too small. It was very embarrassing but not for me because it wasn't my fault. Still, groovy pictures.
