you could write about….

Nate got up a little after I did this morning, and since, for some reason….maybe getting older, I get up really early, Nate got up really early, too.

He asked me, “Why are you up?”

I told him that I needed to write a blog post.

“What are you going to write about?”

I told him that I wasn’t really sure….that I didn’t have any ideas yet.

Smiling, he told me that he knew what I should write about.

“Really? What’s that?”


“No….I don’t think that I’ll write about Minions. That’s a good topic, but I don’t think that I’ll write about Minions.”


I repeated myself and that seemed to kind of satisfy him.

Smiling (again), he said, “I know what you could write about.”



I told him that Olaf was probably not going to be the blog topic either….and then told him that he better go back to sleep….that it was too early for him to be up…and, surprise….he went back to bed.

So… I have two options to write about.

Olaf ….or Minions.

It’s always good to have options.

And, when you think about it, maybe Olaf and Minions are a better option than continuing the current trend of bicycle posts?

Maybe I’ve drained that vein dry?

Maybe that ship has sailed?

Maybe the tires are flat on the two-wheeled locomocution obsession?

Olaf is one of the great animated characters of all time.

Why shouldn’t I write about him?

My daughter works at a grocery store as a cashier and now two children have come through her line and said, “Momma!!¬†SHE LOOKS LIKE ELSA!!!”

(Zoe wears her blonde hair in a single braid.)

I think that’s kind of cool….to look like a beloved cartoon character.

Someone told me I looked like a puppet.

Someone also told me….a “different” someone….that I “had no chin” after I shaved off my big beard.


A “puppet without a chin” is nowhere near as cool as looking like Elsa.

I need to mow the lawn if things dry up.

I need to put air in the tires on the minivan.

There is always something to write about.
