A conversation with my 3-year old…

This seems like as good of a place as any to archive the conversation my youngest and I had last night as we finished up his bath:

[As I’m helping him get out of the tub]
Me: “Please don’t spit, that’s pretty gross.”

K: “I had some water in my mouth from the shower. I wanted to spit it out in the tub so it could drown… and go to the fishes.”
[Puzzled and slightly teasing him]
Me: “Do fishes like spit?”
[Quite swiftly and matter-of-factly]
K: “I don’t know, dad… fishes don’t talk.”


40 Days of Dating

NYC designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman have a little bit of a reality TV experiment going on over at 40 Days of Dating and weirdly enough, it has kept my attention so far. In a nutshell, they are single friends who have decided to engage in a 40-day relationship with a few rules including daily interactions and seeing a counselor regularly . The experiment is actually over so I suppose we’ll get to see how it all works out in the end.

It’s not the greatest thing on the Internet but entertaining enough to check back every few days. Bonus: The custom artwork for each day is a nice touch.

Without projecting in absolutes, I’d venture to say that we’re all going to be a statistic some day. Some are good stats while others are ones we’d all like to avoid, knowing this…

What statistic will you choose to be?
