Very short story today.
You may remember me saying that we missed Avaroo's birthday party last weekend.
(If you don't recall who Avaroo is, go here.)
Well, yesterday we finally made it to her house. Because of our missing her big party, she got to have another smaller party yesterday. A good time was had by all.
At one point in the proceedings, Avaroo decided that she didn't want to do something; I forget exactly what. It wasn't anything earth-shattering. However, here is what Avaroo's mother said to her:
"If you don't behave, Uncle Jimmy won't write any more blogs about you!"
I have to believe that was the first time in the history of mankind that that particular combination of words was ever uttered. At the very least, I surely know none of our parents ever threatened us with the lack of a blog in order to get us to behave. We were told dreary things about starving children in Korea. I think that if I had been threatened with a lack of publicity, I might be an entirely different man today.
Of course, as soon as I heard Ava's mother make that threat, I said, "I don't know, Victoria. That sounds like a blog right there!"
And so it is.
Soon, with more better stuff.
