Get on that!

Today I ran into someone I've been trying to get a gig with in forever. And each time I talk to him, he always sounds really, really interested and wants to start NOW. Yesterday! Yet, he never does. I've tried a lot to get him to sign on. A LOT.

So imagine my surprise today when he said, "HEY! This is amazing! I've been WILLING you into my life!"



"Have you seen 'The Secret'?"

"Uh, I've heard of it?"

"Well, when you want something, you will it."

What I wanted to say: "Why don't you try something easier like...I don't know...returning my phone calls or uh, not blatanly ignoring me?"

I'm going to will myself some dinner.

Which is it?

I love it when you ask two children a general question like, "so what happened at school today", and they both start talking at the same time and you don't know who to look at or who to listen to and you only get bits and pieces that make up some sort of freak answer. Like today. Even though the question wasn't about school, the take I got was: "And my tooth fell out..." "only he wasn't wearing pants" "laid out a napkin for the Tooth Fairy" "smarter than chili" "with Sprite and a cherry" "his mom hates him!"


Glad I asked.

Fresh breath

From the parking lot into the building, I popped an Altoid into my mouth.

Upon opening the door, being welcomed by a dozen smiley faces, I opened my mouth to say "HI!", and the Altoid fell right out and landed on my chest.

Good to see you!
