Offsetting the Recession

Tired of hearing about my follicle oriented anxieties, my wife patted me gently on the head, kissed my increasingly exposed pate, and said,, "Don't worry there is more of you to kiss."

"Good, I'm growing more to kiss here to!" I said proudly, patting my expanding belly.

Pie Fears

I saw the very cute move The Waitress, in which Keri Russell plays a waitress who bakes wonderful pies. As she bakes she sings to herself:
Gonna bake a pie
Gonna bake a pie
Gonna bake a pie with a heart in the middle
Naturally the song is stuck in my head and I sing it to myself (not that I ever bake pies). Now, because my kids have heard it they are afraid of pie because there might be a heart in the middle.

That’s ok – more for me. Those books about how the human body works has really paid off.
