I Am the Doodle-Dah!

When Jared gets really tired, he's more likely to do naughty things. Thus, he's more likely to end up sitting on the stairs for a while. Unfortunately, in this situation he gets cranky and unreasonable; it takes him a while to see that it was his own actions that put him on the stairs, not the actions of anyone else.

He generally blames me, however, for causing him to end up on the stairs. So he sits there, pissed off, admonishing me: "You're the Doodle-Dah!"

So, you heard it here first; I am the Doodle-Dah.

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.
