Never be afraid to get dirty, but be sufficiently sure-footed to avoid the abyss of contamination.

Parental Advice

I’m not above giving parental advice. Take this recent exchange with my sister:

me: how’s my niece?
S: monsterrific
me: you should play the monster mash for her
“the monster from his slab began to rise, and suddenly, to my surprise”
“he did the monster mash”
S: it was a graveyard smash!
me: “AWOOOOH!”

I don’t know if it worked, or if my advice was even taken, but it felt good to be contributing to the discourse, ya know?


One response

  1. i didn’t take your advice. you know why? because she would have started complaining that it wasn’t a song that SHE picked out. when i say monster, i don’t mean happy fun cute elmo monster, i mean the troll under the bridge that wants to eat the 3 billy goats gruff.
