ex machina

the eric update - day 668: odin continues his ethnographic analysis of The Playground.

most of his prior field research had led him to the conclusion that slides were supposed to be slid down while sitting on one's posterior. but in a curious turn of events, he's recently observed that some Big Kids like walk up the slide.

to the best of my knowledge odin has not yet constructed a coherent theory that explains the behavior, but he definitely believes it warrants further study.

given his intense interest in the The Slide, he missed the unique opportunity to observe a mentally challenged adolescent boy who pulled down his pants to take a pee while seemingly oblivious to the horrified protests of a young mother standing nearby with her children. seemingly i say, at least until he started throwing bark chips at her.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
