New Friend

OK...so....I made this new friend. I'll leave you guessing as to where I met him. ;)

He lived in China for 13 years, and has traveled the world over, so he's full up to the brim with intriguing stories. He speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese and teaches a few martial arts classes a week. For our first meeting we ate Chinese food and visited a big Asian market in Oklahoma City. It was fun. Fun. Fun. Fun.

And that's all I have to say about that. For now.

OH....and right now it no longer sucks to be me! Funny how that works.

My kid woke me up at 5:45 am. Then as I was carrying him back to bed, I tripped on the stairs. Well nobody got hurt, but the kid got so excited as a result of this catastrophe narrowly averted that he wouldn't go back to sleep, and I ended up watching Noggin with him for an hour and a half.

And I said a bad word. It just slipped out as I was careening through the darkness, and now all day long the kid's been telling anybody who will listen "Daddy Kurt said a bad word."

And of course they all ask him "Well, what word was that?" Which, OK, if you're foolish enough to ask a five year old that question at Sunday Mass, I don't feel I should be held responsible for the answer you're gonna get.

But I guess I can still find it in my heart to be happy for you, Pam.

Kurt,
Too funny! Reminds me of Daniel when he was not quite 3 and playing with his little peg and hammer set...he missed his hand and yelled out "gammit!" while our preacher was over for a visit.
