Weekly Recap – August 1st, 2014
It’s been a long while since I posted a Weekly Recap. In all fairness to myself (it’s good to be fair to yourself every once in awhile), I’ve been spending a lot of writing time on Wolf’s Tail and other fiction.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I don’t have anything special planned; at least not special in the sense that I’m jumping out of an airplane. Just something like a nice dinner and watching a movie or two with my wife, but I enjoy nice dinners and watching movies with my wife.
As a kid, I used to wonder why my parents never got as excited about their birthdays as I did. Hitting thirty-six this year, I’m getting it. I don’t mean to make birthdays sound all bad. They’re a good reminder that life is short and we’re not growing any younger. To state it more eloquently, they warn us that we need to sh*t or get off the pot. Sitting there just makes our legs go numb.
One birthday I’m very excited about is my son’s. If the daily (and nightly) punches and kicks are any indication, the little guy is ready for an upgrade and should be right on time. Mom’s cozy studio apartment isn’t cutting it anymore.
Anyway, I wish you all a pleasant and safe weekend!
