Went to my niece’s 1st birthday party today. Her name is Rain (like that wet stuff that comes out of the sky some times), she’s adorable and we get along real swell. I love being around kids, but I’m not at all eager for the responsibility to have any of my own, so being an uncle suits me really well I think.
There were a million kids there. Any time there is a function with a lot of kids I end up spending more time with the kids than the adults. I just feel awkward around other adults, even family… especially family, haha. But kids are alright, they’re fun. When I don’t have a kid to hang out with I just end up walking around or just sitting off to the side somewhere sipping Shasta Cola, because I have no idea what to talk to grown ups about. I don’t think “Did you catch Young Justice.” this morning is going to be a good conversation starter.
Family gatherings are kind of weird when you have virtually nothing in common with your family. But anyway, I love that baby, she’s an awesome baby. I ate way too much barbecue, chips, and 7 layer dip, so I’m just going to watch that Young Justice I missed this morning.
