Very, very late last night:
“Josie I’d like you to try very hard to go to sleep now.”
“How Daddy?”
“Well, close your eyes and snuggle down into your soft bed, put your dummy in your mouth and think of all the things that make you happy. Beaches. And penguins. And Grannies. And horses. And little bunny rabbits. And puppies. Then Daddy will wake you up in the morning with a big smile.”
[suddenly very alert]”Daddy!? What’s a pig’s smile?”


I had a terrible telephone interview yesterday. Terrible simply because it was a telephone interview and I find it next to impossible to gauge how it goes without the body language and visual cues that a face-to-face meeting gives. I had a good follow-up call today and am told it actually went very well. I say show me the money.
