Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
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.

I'm sure you've heard all the hullabaloo (and seen the video) about Miss Teen South Carolina's answer to a question about education in the US. I don't see what all the fuss is about -- she's certainly more literate and coherent than the President of the United States. How much more must we require of our bathing beauties?
While making sandwiches:
"Do you want some tomatoes? I'll squish them."

To his sister, at the top of the stairs with a cardboard box:
"It's a box roller coaster. You get in and I'll give you a push."
"It's only three steps high so it won't hurt anybody."

Looking at a picture of two little people:
"I would say to them, you're different than me, but you can still be my friend."

Describing a toy lizard:
"This is a friendly lizard. He loves kisses."
Musing on current politics:
"Do you know why we're naughty children? It's because out president is naughty. He makes us do naughty things."
"I want to call the president of the United States to welcome America to our house."
