the secret to happiness

Wow. It is 7:13 am and neither David nor Simon are up. This is amazing, rare, and allows us some alone time--just you and me, Internet. So I can share with you the secret to happiness.

It is a baby that smiles when he sees you.

I don't know what kind of day you are having--it is not even 8:00 yet--but it could already be going pretty lousy and, by 8:00 pm, you could be ready to jump of a bridge. But if you can just get past the bridge and into the house to a baby that breaks into a big gaping drooling grin whenever he focuses his gaze on you, then you are set for another 24 hours at least. Warm, positive energy flow from the smiling mouth of a baby--like a tractor beam from the Death Star--sucking out the bile that builds up because we can't deal with life as well as a baby can.

Later, secret fans
