The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.-Oscar Wilde

Dear Baby Daphne,

I don't want to tell you how to live your life. And I know experimenting is part of how you learn but....

Have you ever retired a human by mistake?-Blade Runner

Overheard conversation

He: You know Wesley Snipes?

She: What's he in?

He: He played Blade in that one movie. What's it called? Blade Runner?

Bystander: It was called Blade.

He: Oh yeah and he was in Coming to America.


Not knowing about movies is acceptable. Giving wrong information with total confidence isn't.

'Tis healthy to be sick sometimes.-Henry David Thoreau

Dave stayed home from work sick and apparently Fiona convinced him not to take her to day camp. I texted at lunch to see how he was.

Me: How are you feeling? Better? Worse?

Dave: Better. Fiona made me a PB&J and brought me apple juice and some fruit snacks.

Me: Awwwww. She's turning out to pretty decent.
