We now know the name of our granddaughter. According to Mouse, she will be naming her first daughter "Clare Emmanuel."
Tonight as we were doing dishes, Bear said to me: "Dad, when you get angry, can you remember not to do an LBL?"
"LBL! You know -- a long boring lecture."
Me (rolling eyes): "OK, how about an SEL instead?"
"SEL? What's an SEL? Short, interesting lecture?"
"No, Short Exciting Lecture."
"Oh. What's that like?"
Perfect setup. "Well, it's like this. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!" And I leaped at him, tackled him, and tickled him. Don't worry, we were both laughing.
