Important Life Lessons

We celebrated Whitney’s birthday today and I learned two important lessons. First, I cannot do all of my shopping at the Diamondbacks team shop. As strange as it sounds, there are some people who are not interested in receiving gifts with the Arizona Diamondbacks logo emblazened upon them. I was chastised for not showing creativity in my gift giving. I beg to differ. Do they know how hard it is to find little girl clothes at a team shop? If anything, I should be praised for accomplishing what I did. Looks like tomorrow I will be making another trip to the mall to return a gift and find something more appropriate. Hmmmm, I wonder if I could just exchange this girl’s outfit for something that would fit me?

Second important lesson, never and I repeat never attempt to begin the wave when seated at the dinner table for Sunday dinner. The kids and I thought it was great but based upon the look I received from my wife and being banished to clean up dinner dishes for a week, I am guessing that too was not an appropriate decision. I guess the off-season is a time for growth. From the amount of times I have been in the dog house lately, I am guessing that my growth has been stunted.
