Upon the Kitty Catwalk

As always - The Cast of Characters

Me (The Daddy)

The Bean: Age 8
The Butterfly: Age 6
The Darling Wife

The new job has begun.  And once again, I take to the skies.

I'll be traveling to beautiful Leominster, Massachusetts for the next six months - Sunday night to Thursday night out of town.  Away from The DW.  Away from The Bean and The Butterfly.

When I'm not writing blogs and when I'm not unemployed, I work with large computer systems.  Payroll systems.  

Yes, Payroll systems.

Shatter your image of me?

The Bean loves talking on the phone, so my being away is sort of a treat for her.  When she turned 7, we bought her a Barbie telephone.  She knows my cell number.

"Daddy," she says into her pink receiver, "are you writing more books?"

I am, in fact, writing a book.  But not a kid's book.  

Imagine a really dark thriller.  Only darker.

"You should write another Daddy, I Want book."

I agree that I should.

"Maybe this time Lily (the character in my books based on The Bean) can be in a Fashion Show."


"And, of course, she wins."

"Of course."

"It can be called Daddy, I Want to be a Supermodel."

I tell her that I'll write more kid's books as soon as The DW starts to illustrate them.

The Bean takes it upon herself to torment her Mother about this.

I expect to catch hell when I get home.
