A few Random thoughts

I'm experiencing what "real" writers call writers block, so just a few random questions and comments tonight.

Like, why is the man in this picture going to play RF for Cleveland this year, when the guy we signed for $70 million has been his virtual clone the last 3 years?

Why does your wife get mad when she uses a new recipe for dinner and ask you if you like it, but you say "It's not my favorite"?

When your 3 year old utters these words: "Do I still have my diaper on?" Get his Mom. STAT.

When the house is so quiet you hear crickets chirping, find said 3 year old ASAP. Be prepared for anything.

When your 10 month old is learning to walk, DO NOT make any sudden movements: if you do, very LOUD crying will soon follow.

Why do they call where you park your car a driveway, and where you drive your car a parkway?

If you ask you 8 year old daughter how her day went, be prepared for the verbal equivalent of "War and Peace".

Finally, Don't ever reveal to your family members you have a blog. They COMPLETELY take over!

I believe that is Texas talk for its 5:00 somewhere!Back to my question on Drew.Why is he not listed as a springtrainig fielder? I have found a good 19 hr drive in the car breaks a good block of any kind!

Tex said...

Morning Ted...I'm lucid. Have you even read War and Peace? :)

Ted D said...

Tex, what is War and Peace? :)

Hey Ted:

Great stuff--and enjoy "the war and peace"--there will come a day in the not too distant future when your lovely 8 year old will turn into a cranky teenager, and getting her to say "hello" will be like pulling teeth..LOL

Its not writers block you have--its the fact that we are at 7 days to Pitchers and Catchers and there is NOTHING to write about...:-)

Go Sox!
