A Brief Conversation with Charlie (age 4) About Politics and Conservation:

HIM: Dad, are there bad guys?
ME: Yeah, I suppose there are.
HIM: Do we know any bad guys?
ME: No. No, I don't think we do.
HIM: Is Bush a bad guy?
ME: Bush?
HIM: The President. Bush. Is he a bad guy?
ME: Well, I think he really believes that...uh...well, some people have different opinions than other people...uh...
HIM: But he wants to drill in the arctic! And that will hurt the animals! We have to stop him and make him go away! People need to stop building so many houses! We have to stop Bush! People shouldn't drive their cars so much!
ME: Hey, get your shoes on.
There's Nothing Not Funny About...

NBA Update

A thing I wished I had written.

A thing I wrote under a fake name.
A Brief Conversation with Charlie (age 4) While Preparing Crab for Dinner

HIM: Is this crab dead?
ME: Oh yeah. It's definitely dead.
HIM: How did it die?
ME: Well, how do you think it died?
HIM: Hmmm. Did he kill himself?
ME: No! No no. He didn't do that.
HIM: I think he did.
A Brief Update

So it turns out I'm writing a book. It's tentatively planned, I don't even want to say scheduled, for October of 2006. This is something I've been working toward for a long while and I'm grateful that it's happening. Not sure what it means for this blog but my intention is to keep it going. You probably won't need to check it more than about once a week but I will endeavor to post whenever I can.
