Marcus Mumford Ear Raped My Kids — But With a Really Catchy Tune So It’s Kind of All Good

Zander (singing to himself in the back of the car):  It was not your fault but mine.  It was your heart on the line.  I really fucked it up this time….

Zella:  Zander!!  You can’t say that!!  It’s a bad word.

Zander:  What’s a bad word?

Zella:  Fuck.  You can’t say fuck!

Zander:  I didn’t.

Zella:  Yes you did, Zander.  You said, “I really fucked it up this time.”  And you can’t say that because fuck is a bad word.

Zander:  Oh.


(And then after a few seconds of pondering…)


Me:  Zella, do you realize how many times you just said the bad word?




Zella:  Well… was Zander’s fault.


Welcome to my world!

The conversation took place about six months ago.  I wrote it down back then as best I could recall, but I never posted.  No good reason.  I just didn’t.  Seems I’ve done that quite a bit over the last several months.  Not posted.

No good reason.  I just didn’t.




Maybe there are reasons….

      Thanks, man. Not sure if the motivation to post regularly has returned but I keep sensing a little voice saying I should. (Of course, that may just be my wife!)

      Thanks, man. I’ve been hitting all the old haunts (twitter, fb, reader) and at least trying to keep up — just keeping a low profile.

    Much more doubt, mumble; much more trouble, delegate; much more charge, ponder.
    Nearly all quality improvement comes via simplification of design, manufacturing… layout, processes, and procedures.
