When my children were young, we were at a beach house one weekend and I noted they had not yet been to the beach. They were just lying around the living room, playing video games, reading comics, bored. At a beach house! I said “let’s head to the beach.” “Aw Dad, we don’t want to go to the beach,” as they continued to do not much of anything. “Sorry,” I said. “Today is a mandatory fun day. Whether you like it or not, we are going to have fun.” We went to the beach, played Nerf Football, then to a movie, a museum, ice cream, and generally had a wonderful, fun time that each of them remembers to this day.
So it is with this blog. No matter how bad your day is going, when you come here you must have fun. It might be derivative. It might be short-lived. It might only be for a minute or two. But you come here, it’s mandatory fun. Don’t mess up.
