If your sole goal has become “just make it to the end” perhaps the time has come to rethink your life’s purpose.add a comment

I just had a conversation with Yesterday
He claimed I should be focused on Today
And went on to chastise the Future
While praising the Present
Using words from the Past.

There’s a reason nice guys finish last and I think it’s time to move ahead of the pack.add a comment
Can’t trust tonight’s blood pressure measurement September 16, 2013 9:02 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Family
I decided to start measuring my blood pressure again. I grab the cuff and there’s no back on it. The 4 AA batteries are no where to be found. Neither is the back (which holds the batteries in). You know, if you are going to steal the batteries..fine but at least but the battery cover back on!
I suspect the conversation was "hey, wanna see Dad’s blood pressure REALLY high?"add a comment

I just took my son to work. Do I go back to bed? Feed the animals circling at my feet? Read a book? Work? Improve the house? Wash a car?add a comment
Awkward parent moment September 10, 2013 7:42 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Evan, Family, From the mouths of babes, Of Being Dad
Tonight’s awkward moment of reading aloud to your 8 year old brought to by Neil Gaimen in Stardust. I hesitated as I read with enthusiasm, "and her tongue slid into his mouth" but I bravely pressed on, "his hand felt her small breasts through the silk of her dress" huh? "touched the hard nubs of her nipples" Now wait a minute! Did I just read that out loud to my 8 year old boy in the presence of my eleven year old girl?! I flip the soft porn over and examine the back cover for an age recommendation. There is an S in a triangle which I presume means safe but I read the next paragraph to myself and skipped reading aloud the parts about arching, pushing, exulting, and not pulling out because she held him inside her with her legs wrapped around him.
Skipping to the next safe paragraph, I continue reading to my children.add a comment
