Daisy graduated from first grade yesterday. Although we've enrolled her in day camp to keep her busy this summer, it doesn't start until next week. So for today, her first day of summer vacation, we're using the expert babysitting skills of Uncle TV. He tells good stories. Plus, the loving radiation he emits keeps her internal organs warm.
(Actually, after I wrote that paragraph, my wife got home early and took her to the beach! I guess she'll have to warm her organs the old fashioned way: UV radiation)
On an unrelated and final Friday note, allow me to brag that I was the winner of a recent contest in janelle renée's charming blog (although I did have the home field advantage this time). My prize was that she has now featured me as the main character in her latest 55. 55s are a form of short story that must contain exactly 55 words. It's an exercise in brevity and wit. Go read my prize!
