Monumental Moment of the Day #1: I left the house. Since the advent of home-officeness, I've been inside. We have a chaise lounge that goes out more often than I do. That's a lie. We don't have a chaise lounge. But I don't get out much anymore. This is not a complaint. I am a homebody and proud of it. But I haven't officially broken up with the great outdoors, we've just been seeing other people. We ran into each other, and it wasn't awkward at all.
Monumental Moment of the Day #2: I went on a walk with Colin. This was our first father-son walk without company. It was pretty cool. Yeah he spit up on me as we were headed outside, but still, it was magical. The spit-up wasn't magical. But the walk, that was cool.
Monumental Moment of the Day #3: It was not cool. It wasn't cool at all, meteorologically speaking. It was really, really warm. Kinda felt like a dragon was blowing on us, because it was also really, really windy. But the warmth was the prevailing element. It was so warm, I had to take Colin's jacket off. I would have taken my jacket off, except the shirt I was wearing was covered in orange spit-up stains. Still, it was nice to be outside and warm and with Colin. As we were walking around, I just saw new life springing up everywhere. It was one of those Disney moments when birds are just kind of fluttering around you, singing merry little tunes, punctuated by the occasional spurt of a sump pump. Okay, so it wasn't completely Disney, but magical nonetheless.
Monumental Moment of the Day #4: I got offered a ticket to the Cubs game tomorrow, and I'm going. An old friend from church called up out of the Cubbie blue, and we're heading to Chi-town tomorrow.
All in all, not a bad day.
Paddock vs. Petty: If You Had to Pick One - I’ll declare at the outset that what I’m about to propose is a false dichotomy. This world is not divided into Tom Pettys and Stephen Paddocks. But I’m goi...
