Friday Five: Advice

Five random things I’d like my son to remember:

  • Few things in life are as frequently useful as a good Swiss Army knife (or Leatherman pocket tool). I always have one handy and still own the first one your great-grandmother, Nana Rainy, gave me when I was in fifth or sixth grade.
  • I have never regretted not going to a funeral, but I have often regretted not visiting someone before they died.
  • Brush and floss at least twice every day. No excuses. Just do it.
  • Be passionate about music and be open to hearing new songs. You will not like every song you hear, but you might really like a song you haven’t heard yet.
  • Call your mother. She misses you.

Friday Five: Hysteria Calling

CashNot that I ever play the lottery, because I don’t, but if I did, and if I won, here are the first five people I’d call:

  1. my wife / son
  2. my lawyer
  3. my sister
  4. my dad
  5. American Express

It’s been 15,000 days since I was born. It is a meaningless number, but I felt like I should mention it.

I wish my mom was around to celebrate this milestone. She’d undoubtedly think it was really cool.
