while driving my daughter to her mom’s…
she says,”Dad, why aren’t you married?”
“i’m not even dating anyone right now. why would you ask that?”
“i think you’re not married because you’re too smart and adventurous for anybody.”
“what?’, i asked.
“you’re the only grown up i know that will just do things because you can and that scares girls away.”
“why does that scare them?”
“because they don’t understand life, i think.”
turns out my kid is smarter than i thought.
she finished the conversation with this. “i don’t think i could spend my life with someone that just wants to go to work and watch TV either.”
i hope she has better luck than me.
some photos from this morning’s hike. storm’s are moving in. i have no interest in being out there tonight. i came home.
Hours later and not much has changed. Back at home. Tired. This was a good weekend.
a ridiculous photo of me from around grade 8 or 9, i think. that girl is Heather. she looks excited. i look high. i probably was.
the only reason i have this is because her husband gave it to me. think he was have some insecurity issues when they got married.
my daughter took this. made me promise to put it online because had on my army issued glasses.
because i was asked nicely, i present my right forearm.
this adorable kid is my nephew.
he currently lives in Central Africa.
he uses poop as warpaint after naps.
i just woke up and it’s already time to go? what about my coffee? and my french toast stick?
gimme a fucking minute, asshole.
oh, good morning.
