10 Things In My Head, Volume 1

1. The baby won’t sleep. I don’t care if its the 4-month sleep regression or the 8-month sleep procession, it’s not good.

2. The news is bad. Rinse and repeat. The news is bad.

3. There is an investigation. There are people being questioned. We want to know more, but we can’t know more. Top secret.

4. It’s not the weekend. Its the beginning of the week. Many days left until the weekend.

5. You have a project. You don’t have time for the project, the project gets dusty.

6. You are in a new world. At-home Dad by day. Teacher by night. You have no phone booth in which to switch your clothes.

7. The lights are nice. The golden orange ones that were up for Halloween, that you strung around the back. Those are nice at night.

8. Shower. Go shower before you rush off to make dinner and then go to the meeting before the class. Go now.

9. Rinse and repeat.

10. Just make it to the holiday break in November, then three more weeks until winter break..

Writing. Poetry. Personal Essays. On the NBA, MLB, media, journalism, culture, teaching and humor.
