#leap


“Daddy, come play.”

“I’m working.”  Stan sighed.  Tweeted: kid wants me to play a damn game #annoying.

@StanLew Unplug your damn computer  #theygrowuptoofast.

Stan looked at his modem cord.  Got a scissors. 

Snip.

How 'bout it! I think I always need to disconnect. I can also vouch for the fact that time speeds by since mine are 19 and 21.

The leap was a sneep! Love it, and need to take heed.

It is a leap to free one's self of the modern shackles

Very good, and wise, too. We've had almost no sun this year, the sun is now out and here I am hunched over a laptop indoors. That's it, I'm off.

This was great (and so true). One of these days, the kiddos will be asking him not to join them.

Haha! I loved "got a scissors" - because that's how a kid would describe scissors.
