While Joanne visits her dad in the hospital, I'm on kid duty, wrangling Tom and Mike. They're bored and cranky in the minivan, threatening rebellion, and while I'm tempted to just turn them loose in the parking lot, it doesn't seem like the sort of thing responsible parents do.
So I load Mike into the Baby Bjorn -- a kind of kangaroo pouch for infants -- and put Tom on my shoulders and we go walking around the grounds, looking almost exactly like an ambulatory totem pole and startling innocent people.
It's hard to tell who this amuses more.
Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.
Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic and Buzz Clock), Web sites (like the Webby-nominated Metababy and The American People) and stories (for Web sites like Suck and Fray, print magazines like Worth and Macworld, and books like "Things I Learned About My Dad" and "Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard").
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you!
