I may have to steal that when DS has a bit more attention span.
Or actually asks that question, instead of stating "When I get as big as Dad...."

Sorry, honey, the flights back are just too expensive. We're going to have to stay down here!

I wish that would have been the final outcome. Instead, we're driving back.

DS thought about this for a moment or two and then with the perfect timing of a Second City Player, looked down, gently shook his head from side to side and muttered…


“Years, and years, and years…”
I LOVE THIS! Very True!

No idea why I posted this.. just impressed by Matt Groening again, I guess.
Rudyard Kipling was the original author. Not sure how I like being equated with Grampa Simpson.

I actually preferred MG's Life in Hell work pre-Simpsons. Yeah, I'm old.

I'll have to tell him that.

I’m glad y’all enjoyed that one. It certainly tickled me at the time. Since we were alone in my car driving back to the house from some event somewhere, it was rather tough not to bust out laughing for the remainder of the ride back home.

I was thinking something similar. That is a unique spot on the map to choose to call home. I like It.

There are far worse writers/speakers to be compared to…


And you ain’t that old. I remember the time before Life in Hell

Wednesday, August 22nd. 2:14pm. Near the back of the China pavilion, there is a door guarded by two lion statues. Be standing next to the lion with his foot on the globe. Have the money ready. You will be given further instructions then. Do not make eye contact.


Or, you know, whatever works for you.

Time to start being the overbearing athletics dad! You can start screaming at the head coach when he gives Evan his turn on the bench.

Great answer, though. My church is doing an 11-week study on marriage and reading a companion book. At one point in discussing the role of the husband, the author defines true manhood as "accepting responsibility"...both for your actions and those under your care. I thought that was really good.

Ok, I was thinking 2:17 but that should work.

As for the eye contact, is that with you or the lion?

Dang....our plan may be compromised, as I get the feeling this is a public forum... We may have to shore up details later.

We've done something similar. What book are you using?

Man am I bored. Counting down the time until the shuttle picks me up tomorrow (T minus 15 hours). Will never fly to Orlando again. If I didn't pay for a plane ticket I would be in the car right now and on the phone to Disney getting a room for tonight. Did RSVP to the WDW Today Cinco meet at Cava tomorrow. Could get ugly.

Ryan, if you read this, I'll buzz your room and maybe we can meet up before you leave.
