Went from no ACL to both weekends of ACL... and here I thought I lost my edge.

Last night at dinner, I was talking about how much I love Lizzo when my husband chimed in that he saw her at SXSW. My 13-year-old whips around, eyes huge, and with great exaggerated sarcasm says "WOW, you saw her at SXSW?!! No. Way." We have raised an Austin smart-ass.

At a paper I worked at years ago (not Austin), a few reporters would choose an unusual five-dollar word and then place bets on who could sneak it past by me in their business stories.
