Ira vs. Jerry (Day 4)

An unforeseen side effect of the October Challenge is an internal struggle about what each post should be like – tone, tenor, theme, topic. I mean, today was a pretty lousy day, and I’m fishing for something to write about. Where to start? Dan taking the day off to hang out with Ryan while she recovers from hand-foot-mouth? When the washing machine started leaking water all over the kitchen floor? Or maybe when the pipe snake got stuck in the drain and now we have to call the plumber. Again. for the third time in a month. Oy.

Perhaps I should channel Ira Glass and craft vignettes of the day that elevate mundane tales of everyday to reflect the universal nature of humanity? Or maybe I should model my writing on Jerry Seinfeld, and blog about NOTHING? And then try to make it funny.

I’m stumped, and I’m realizing that this challenge is going to be tougher than I thought it would be…

So, I’m going to default to the best blog post back-up plan ever: A cute kid pic.

Ryan and her buddy, Naveen. Can you really beat those smiles?

Hey, it works in the movies…
