On Wednesday, when the family met for lunch, Ryan gave me a T-shirt with the message, “I’m blogging this.” She said now I could look like a nerd. Thank you so much, Ryan. The nerdy part was never in question but now the world can stand on notice that if it does something stupid, inspired or just quirky, it might appear in my blog. I used to have a job where I got to stand in front of large groups of people and talk about things. I loved it. I guess there’s a bit of the exhibitionist in me. This blog (which Ryan gave me as a present) is a great substitute for my earlier pontificating. (Hmmm, pontificating, I’ll have to blog something about the new pope soon.) So beware! Talk to me, write to me, bump into me on the street and I might be blogging it!
