I'm going to be a single-dad in August of 2014.
I actually prefer to think of myself as a soon to be kick-ass co-parent but that'll be a story for a different day.
Since I'm in the "hey, I'm clearly a winner" kind of mood here's the rest of the full disclosure. I live with my mom, it has a lot of nice perks to it but I like to think I'm being a good son - she's had some health issues and it's pretty important to my brothers and myself that one of us stays close by enough as a "just in case."
Now if you're not scared away by all that here's some other interesting facts about me:
I can't dance but make up for it with enthusiasm.
I love random trivia and learning things.
I cook pretty well.
I eat better than I cook.
That's why I run.
I think the world is more complex than we give it credit for but simpler than we expect it to be.
I smile every day, even when sad and I do it genuinely.
I'm also tall, tend towards the sarcastic and at work try to make small connections with customers over the cash register; maybe I ask where they last used their airline miles, maybe I compliment them for looking better than their driver's license picture. Either way I think it's appreciated. :-)
I do great conversations over email, small conversations over text and my real life conversations run the gamut and depend on how quick whom I'm conversing with is.
My favorite time to listen to NPR is right after the supreme court comes down with a few decisions and I think they were dead wrong in the Hobby Lobby case as you can already see it being interpreted far wider than Alito expressed in his majority opinion.
Well, I think that's enough talking right now. Rock on you shining stars!
