Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 5.18

It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then open it and remove all doubt

-Mark Twain


I gave you all the week off for graduation last week. It sure is good to be done with that phase of my life. Now I can focus on more important things like googling stuff. Just recently I googled 'Pleasant Sociopath' only to find that very few people that are sociopaths are pleasant by nature. Now, why would anybody want to know about this type of person? Well this past week we had Gigi's one year check up and in addition to the brag session Jenny and I did, you know telling the doctor that our daughter is not only the cutest little girl but she is the smartest, most talented and best kid in the world, the doctor kept asking us if we had any concerns. We responded that she sleeps really well, she is a fantastic eater, she has been walking since February so we didn't have any concerns. Then he asked again so I decided we might as well tell him that she is also very mean to her cousins. Namely Benson, I think it is because he is an easy target. It was then that the doctor said something that I thought was both odd and true. He said, "Toddlers are pleasant sociopaths." In googling this I realized two things. All adult sociopaths are not pleasant and there really aren't a lot of links to webpages that discuss 'pleasant sociopaths' so I will yet again corner that market on google. Also why is 'webpage' an okay word but 'webpages' is not acceptable? Spell check you fickle mistress. Anyway, the doctor said she has no grasp on consequences she only has impulsive behavior. With that in mind it makes sense now that she loves to dive off the couch head first she loves to pull Frankie's hair until he gets mad and she loves to put anything and everything in her mouth. Also she might be the reincarnation of Jacque Cousteau because if we let her she would try and explore every inch of this world. It is our only hope that if she escapes our yard that somebody will find her read her toddler tags and then call us so we can come pick her up. Just like Roscoe.


Trivia Time: Well the Jazz are out of the running so the question who do I cheer for now? This means, which team is going to beat the Lakers?


Beat the Odds Tip: Meetings take up time but they are also really boring.


I realized this past weekend that a fun Trivia Time would be me describing the most recent wound I received over the week then you would have to guess how I got injured. For instance I now am the proud owner of a scab that is roughly a 2 inch by 2 inch square just below my knee on my left leg. It is not a deep cut more like a burn or road rash but it isn't road rash or a burn. The wound is not a perfect square and it has been oozing some sort of substance since it happened. So now you the reader would have to deduce how I obtained this wound. If you need more clues feel free to ask for them. If this catches on and I don't get injured during the week I will probably just hurt myself on purpose or I will describe old injuries that I have sustained throughout the years.


Have a good week I know I will

Eric Jones

1. don't root for anyone, just root for Laker players, fans, and coaches to get injured
2. sliding into second base in a beer league softball game
3. you were probably out.

I agree, if only there was some sort of chemical would only affect those that think the Lakers are God's gift to mankind. I will look into it. I was sliding but it was to prevent a shot on goal. Mission accomplished.
