I'm here this afternoon with Maria, my lovely seven year old daughter. Maria would like to discuss mischievious mysteries. So, let's see what happens:
First, let's ask - how's Lenny doing? Lenny is my nickname for my brother, Ben. Second, who are the teachers for me and Ben/Lenny this year? Well, oh well, we'll find out. That's the mysteries part.
Now on the mischievious part. I'll bet Ben is up to something today. Like, when we were playing with Ben's GameBoy, he kept talking to the Pokemon and saying stuff like, "Yes, power! Yes! We're going for the death!" I kept telling him, the game isn't just about getting power. You can actually have some love with the Pokemon. Oh well, we'll find out what he's up to. Now, back to Dad. Ahhhhh, barra barracuda!
I would note that the classic rock reference contained therein is completely Maria's. She has a lot of musical influences and wants to be a rock star some day. There is the matter of getting the electric guitar and amp, and putting up with a little bit of screeching before she learns how to do the wailing solos, but I wouldn't bet against her. At a minimum, I'd guess she'll be better than most of the mopes who appear on American Idol.
Kids have a lot of dreams. So do I. And we're working on them every day. Always good to have my guest blogger Maria around - you can also find her at www.aboutmaria.blogspot.com, and you can also find my son at www.bens-sportsblog.blogspot.com, where we rages eloquently against Barry Bonds. We do present all sides here at Mr. Dilettante.
