Today's Best (excerpt)

I ever get to Rio, you'll be there.

You'll be there,
You'll be there,
With a dozen rainbow trout in your hair.

You'll be there,
You'll be there,
With a tunafish pajama that's got flair.

You'll be there,
You'll be there,
And I swear I tell you true.

You'll be there,
You'll be there,
And have lots of stuff t' do!

When 3 and a half year olds get mad

The other day Nick was mad about something. So, I started talking to him about all the times I get mad (when I lose something, break something, etc) so he could see that feelings are common experiences.

I asked him, "Nick, do you ever get mad?"
"Yes," he answered.
"When?" I asked.
He looked up at the wall clock: "When the long hand is on the 9."

Hilarity.

Then, I told him I sometimes got mad at myself. I mentioned occasions when that has happened.

I asked him, "Nick, do you ever get mad at yourself?"
"Yes," he answered.
"When?" I asked.
He walked over to my computer modem, which has 8 lights across it. Most are lit, but some blink from time to time.
He points at the modem: "When these two lights are blinking."

Nonstop hilarity.
