Sunday night, my family is watching the NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. One of the Giants’ receivers, Amani Toomer, went out for a pass, which fell incomplete.

My youngest son sat upright on the couch as if he’d been shocked by electricity. Without warning, he shouted out (in a perfect Schwarzenegger voice), “It’s not a Toomer!”*

I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.

* My son was parodying this scene from “Kindergarten Cop”:

One of the notable songs from Billy Joel’s “Streetlife Serenade” album from 1974 was a song called “The Last of the Big Time Spenders.” The chorus includes the following line:

At my house? At my house, you get the gift that keeps on giving: embarrassment. (more…)

Spring… When a Young Man’s Thoughts Turn To… April 10, 2007

…wait. How the heck should I know? I’m no “young man!”

What I do know is that today was a fabulous day to own a convertible, find a winding road, and let nature (and the steering wheel) take its course. Your mileage may vary.


P.S. Please excuse the tie (I was on my way back to the office from a funeral) and the long hair. I promise to get it cut soon. 😉
