Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life

Wednesday, August 17, 2005


Me: "What are you doing, Jared?"

Jared: "I'm putting my pants on my head."

Me: "Why are you putting your pants on your head?"

Jared: "To make it longer."

Me: "To make what longer, your pants or your head?"

Jared: "My head."

Journal Description

My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.
