Blind (or stupid parent tricks) (PG)
It seems that there was this little 9 year old blind kid, and one day he said to his mom, ''Mom, all I've ever wanted was to see.''
His mom said, ''Well son it's your lucky day, today is the last day of March, and if you pray your hardest, your prayers will be answered.''
So the little boy goes to bed 2 hours early and starts praying himself to sleep. He wakes up half way through the night and realizes that the night isn't over, so he prays another hour before he falls asleep again.
He finally wakes up the next morning and yells, ''Mom, Mom, get in here fast!''
His mom comes running in and says, ''What is it son?''
The boy says, ''Mom I did just what you said, I prayed and prayed harder than anyone else ever has, but I woke up this morning, and I'm still blind!''
And his mom says.......''April Fools!!''

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
