Night Off

from - smijer

I guess I'll be taking the night off blogging. I have a new niece. I've had new nephews and nieces before, and though I love them all, I've rarely visited the hospital just after they were born - and these are my sisters' children. This time she is the child of my brother-in-law, and I make an exception. The reasons, in no particular order:

  • I live close-by at the time of birth
  • The mother is making me feel guilty
  • My wife is pining away for her new little girl
  • Emily is the one paying for our expeditions to Iraq, the Moon, and Mars, and my $1,000 tax cut, under the Bush plan. That's enough to buy her some gratitude from Uncle Smijer.
