    Picking an arbitrary day a few months from now, marking it on the calendar for Clementine to see, and having her cross out the days leading up to it every night at bedtime, could lead to some juicy, deep fried blogs. Not just now, but for many theraputic, regretful years.

    I figured it out using the most up-to-date health data I could find: 12,775.

    Having learned all my parenting skills from Sanford and Son, whenever my daughter asks when I’m gonna die, I let her know that all depends on how naughty she is.

    If she doesn’t, say, eat her peas, I clutch my chest, and howl “It’s the big one, you’re killing daddy, you’re gonna kill daddy!”

    By “days,” of course, she means in a Biblical sense – as in, the earth was created in 6.

    Ah, but Mark will never die. He will live forever in the blogosphere, so future generations will have the benefit of his wit and wisdom . . . .

    Mark is the Redd Foxx of blogging. Can’t believe I never noticed it before.

    I predict mark will live for 6 periods of an undefined length of time, then return to whoop some ass.

    Please be advised that that last comma may or may not signify at least 2,000 years.

    In other words, mind your own business. Ask me again and I’ll just say “really soon.”

    100 characters. Seems kind of restrictive.

    I know it seems that way, but over 100 characters is not beneficial. It’s protecting you from yourself.

    Kid’s are so impatient.

    Cute. But impatient.

    Kids have a sixth sense about those things. I think she knows something you don’t, and was just asking to see if you could guess it right.

    It actually led to a really nice discussion about life, and how much I wanted to live to an age where I felt as though she’d do well without me. I may be wrong, but I think she really gets that it’s my job to make sure she grows up to be a decent person and a contributing member of society.
