“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go”
As a parent it’s always nice when your kids are proud over you, or even better boasts about you… We held a little birthday party with the little one the other day. The entire class was there and had hamburgers and drinks. One of the guys started burping, as 9 year olds or younger (and older too) sometimes do to get attention. After a few hefty burps and a few giggles and laughs, little one gives up a sigh with a somewhat tired glance towards the ceiling and comments:
- Pah! That was nothing. My Dad, he can really burp!
That kind of put an end to the attention-burping and the party went on to other things without any further comments on the subject.
I was out shopping with little one the other week and in the midst of the store I got a startling question: “Hey, Daddy, what is a Hipster?”. I know about the concept Hipster, but not good enough to really explain it to anyone, especially not a 9 year old. I was starting to go over different ways on how to approach the concept of “urban” and “style” and “group belongings” and “fashion” and a whole lot more. I asked myself “What da heck a Hipster actually?” when in the corner of my eye I caught a little finger pointing towards a rack of undies. And suddenly the answer was clear to me. A Hipster! Well, it’s a certain type of cut underwear just like that, I said. Suddenly the world became easier. We browsed on through the store cruising towards the cashiers.
“If we shouldn’t bargain with villains, we hardly have anyone to bargain with.”
“When you’re young it’s easy to differ between good and bad. As you become older it becomes more difficult.”
On the last day of the year we usually gets very sentimental and thinking back or forward. Of course I wish you a better year on the threshold of the new and a little sentiment:
“The Universe is so fantastically huge and we are so infinite small. There is only one thing we can rule over, and that is if we are good or if we are bad.”
“If at first an idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”
It’s Official: End of World Is Not Near.
Russia’s government have decided to put an end to the dooms-day talk regarding the Mayan Calender. For those not schooled in New Age prophecy, there are rumors the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012, when a 5,125-year cycle known as the Long Count in the Mayan calendar supposedly comes to a close.
Russia’s Minister of Emergency Situations said Friday (the week before last) that he had access to “methods of monitoring what is occurring on the planet Earth,” and that he could say with confidence that the world was not going to end in December.
Sometimes reassurances like these cause even more questions. Exactly what methods of “monitoring occurrings on the planet Earth” is this Minister talking about?? The Minister acknowledged, however, that Russians were still vulnerable to “blizzards, ice storms, tornadoes, floods, trouble with transportation and food supply, breakdowns in heat, electricity and water supply.” Is that just business as usual or does he know something we don’t?
