Heartburn is still pwning my life. I’m at my wit’s end. Calgon take me away.

As you may or may not know, my niece is like the cutest baby ever. I actually had a dream last week where I was dying of cancer (hmm… probably related to the heartburn) and the most important thing I wanted to do before I died was make sure Ellie remembered me. So I took a bunch of videos and pictures saying stuff like “I am your uncle.” Random.

Anyway, I’ve said this before, but I’m sad because I know when we have kids, I know they’re going to be nothing like that. Not interactive, not happy. They’re going to be dour, detached observers. And of course I’ll love them. But they’re not going to measure up to the social standard of Ellie.
