Use the title of a movie, selected as randomly as you wish, as the inspiration for your writing today.
I finally got around to taking apart Max's crib today and stored it in the basement for future use with his younger sibling. It's been taking up space in our bedroom for far too long but I somehow managed to keep putting it off.
Max actually ended up helping me with it. Like, really helping. I got him to unscrew several bolts with an Allen key while I held on and made sure the sides didn't topple over. It was a bit of an odd feeling. Definitely nice though.
That kid loves his tools, that's for sure.
Anyway. Preparations for the arrival of baby number two continue to come along slowly. Which is okay, because we do have another five months still.
How To Train Your Dragon
What? You want more? Why?
You paid how much for this book?
Okay, okay. Though you should know up front that there is no chance whatsoever that you're going to get your money's worth from what follows. But, considering the subject matter, I'm also going to assume that you don't care too much about that.
All right, all right. Let's get to it, shall we?
First of all, you should always - and I do mean always - have other food sources within arm's reach. Dragons get hungry. Often. And when the urge to eat strikes, they strike quickly. So if your dragon starts looking at you with that special gleam in his or her eyes... toss them some meat.
Second of all, what the hell are you thinking? Trying to train a bloody dragon? Do you want to die?
Sorry. But it had to be said. Now let us move on.
Third of all... all training should take place far from your home. In fact, the dragon should never see where you live. Trust me. If anything goes wrong during training - but not so wrong that you don't survive - you will not want that dragon knowing where you live.
Though I suppose he or she wouldn't take all that long to find it anyway. Dragons are mighty fine hunters after all...
