You know what? It was a busy week here at DWHQ. A damn busy week. Which is amusing because it didn’t seem like that was going to happen. You know, we began in a fairly normal way, with Theodore complaining, or maybe not complaining, about his (un)birthday. But then, ZAM! His mother wrote in with a comment for the ages:
liar liar pants on fire i called twice –you did not answer — i texted twice –you did not answer . then i left a message with your wife to say i wished you a happy. you just needed to write a pithy , semihumorous , semi selfpitying mmonologe . next time –mom says answer your phone when i call .
Awesome. From there, things only got better, particularly when Theodore wrote something for the local paper, which drove many, many readers our way. Also, another reader threatened to quit us. Exciting!
Nathan, meanwhile, advocated showing Star Wars to children, bragged about his genius at throwing birthday parties, and interviewed John Donohue, editor of the cool new book “Man With a Pan.” Also, he discussed Hosni Mubarak’s separation anxiety.
Actually, Nathan’s birthday party planning had one fatal flaw, according to Matt: No presents?!? Matt also spent some time thinking, for once, about his daughter’s education: first, about how scared he is he’ll accidentally enroll her in a Scientologist school; and second, about how he’s not going to bother to teach her Chinese. (Sorry, Amy Chua.) Also, he posted some amusing videos.
Anyway, that’s about it. Have a good weekend. See you Monday.
