Yet another example of why you shouldn’t sit down next to me if you see me anywhere

with 2 comments

You might be a normal person who hears a child chant, as I just did, “Made you look/Made you look/Now you’re in the baby book,” and forget it immediately. I envy you, friend. I, unfortunately, am not a normal person and I am therefore troubled by a number of things in that nyah-nyah:

  • Why does making someone look put him or her into the baby book?

  • Why is being in the baby book bad and, as a result, tauntable? I like babies. Wouldn’t being in the baby book be a good thing?

  • If being in the baby book is indeed a bad thing, what sort of person would trick another person, probably a friend or family member, into looking just to get him or her into a baby book?

The questions could go on forever (and it felt like they did in the original version of this post), and by now the person once sitting next to me would be running away as surely as if I had been pitching scientology, Atlas Shrugged, or CDs of the New Kids on the Block reunion.

  1. You know you have to follow friends on Twitter in order to see their @replies, right?

  2. You’d be amazed at how little I know about Twitter and how few people (0) I follow on Twitter. What am I missing?
