Tales from the Lunchbox
As I was thoroughly chastised last night by my gaming buddies (Andy and Chri3) for a complete lack of any blog presence, due to Dragon Age: Origins mind you, I realized I should get on the ball. Last year I was averaging about a post a day, this year, umm, not so much! So this will hopefully be a regular installment known by the post title.
I'm a dad, quite a domestic one actually, and I'm the lunch maker in the house. In my six year old's lunchbox I always put a little note in there too, usually this is something like "Have a good day!", "Don't forget to...", and the like. Every now and then I will just draw a picture or something, and on occasion I will write a small, episodic story. These have been her favorite so far. It's a small piece of paper (grocery list size) so there's not a lot of room, just enough to get a paragraph or so down. It's good because it flexes her reading muscle (and my writing muscle to boot) and gives her something fun to read at lunch. Where's the story? Patience, I'll have to post them in increments because I don't even know where the tale is going. I've done a few so far, many more to come, so I'll get them posted soon, just letting everyone out there that I haven't disappeared entirely off the face of the blogosphere.
