Pardon me boys...


So I am part of Big Brothers of Massachusetts Bay, and I have a little. He's 9 and he has Asperger's, which is a high functioning form of autism. He is incredibly interested in certain things. Namely cars and trains. So today, I took him to Concord, MA on the MBTA Commuter Rail. The train ride was about a half hour and then we went to a pizza place around there. He ate an entire cheesesteak and I had half of a cheeseburger sub. That boy always eats more then me. Its impressive.

Anyway, I thought the Saturday and Sunday schedules were the same. They're not, in case you wanted to know. So after lunch, we had a two hour wait for the train. In the rain. With a very hyperactive kid. Not happening. So I called Chuck, who explained he was at the airport dropping his lovely wife Sara off. I then called my roommate, Jeff, who came to pick me up.

Thank you Jeff. You are the man. My head was a lot less achy today because of you. Help Jeff out by buying his band's CD on Itunes.

He didn't have the train schedule memorized? :)

Littles rock. I had a lengthy conversation last night with my 3 1/2 year old cousin about her Halloween costume (Minnie Mouse- she was psyched to have her nose painted) and her non-stop desire to dance. I told her she wasn't alone, that in fact her big cousin likes to dance all the time too.
It doesn't get any better than that.
