First the good news: People apparently want me to continue blogging.
The bad news? I'm going to indulge them.
Seriously though, it's been a long, long time since I've written anything here. And that kind of makes me sad, because there's a bunch of stuff I've wanted to put up. Unfortunately, I don't really have the time right now. After the next two weeks pass I should be able to find some real time for writing, but until then I'm just gonna keep it quick and simple. I do have one little reflection, spurred by the just-passed holiday season, to share right now:
Remember when you were little? And you gave "coupons" as gifts? You'd have to fill in the yellow slip of paper with a chore and so they'd say little things like, "One free: Dishes for a week with no complaining." or "Redeem to have the living room vacuumed." Yeah. For anyone hanging onto those, I'm afraid they expired a long time ago. I know the expiration date isn't printed on them, but how awful would that be? Say its 35 years down the road, and I'm governor or something when I hear a knock, knock, knock on the door.
"Hmm, who could that be? Oh, hi Mom! I'm in the middle of a budget meeting right now could I get bac- what's that in your hand? A chore coupon? Are you serious? Here? Now? In front of the Speaker of the House? Well... Fine. Yeah, sure, I guess I can oblige. It was a Christmas gift after all. What's the card say I need to do? Change a diaper? But... you don't have any kids in diapers anymore, only Da-Ooooooooohhh."
