Last night Oliver and I started watching Game of Thrones. For those of you who are not in the know, this is a show on TV. We only got through the first few minutes before falling asleep, but so far it seems to be pretty close to the book. I am glad that I did not live in medieval times cuz it seems like a smelly time to live.
So anyway, like I was saying. I will be going on my baby daddy leave April 18th for a six week paid holiday (holiday is the grown up word for changing poopy diapers all day long instead of just at night). Given the severe lack of conversational skills that Oliver has thus far shown to have, and since I will be through the Game of Thrones DVD way before then, I think that I am going to need something to do with my time.
I know that some might say to clean the house, or to work out, or some other mind/body/life improving activity, but that is not really my style. I need to come up with a plan (plan is the grown up word for a scam that is most likely not illegal) to somehow have people come to believe that I am performing work for them such that they feel obligated to pay me.
So far here are my ideas: I could write a book, initiate a culture war in this country, start a business, or join the mafia. The phone lines are open so please feel free to give me some ideas, or comment on the awesomeness of my current ideas.
Hopefully I can, with your help, come up with an idea that is so brilliant that I won’t have to go back to work, and can just be a stay at home dad (see Michael Keaton, worked for him. I even have a pair of sweats in the car already).
I am currently working on a plan that will involve my neighbor doing all the work, my sister doing the books, and my brother creating the technology, with me all the while making tons of money. The plan is still in the crack pipe stage, but I will let you know when it moves into the sphere of reality.
For now; however, please raise your glasses and toast
