I was doing some work trying to debug a 7 year old computer that was dying. I was in the process of shuffling hard drives around and 9-year-old Dinah was watching me. I was pointing out various components (RAM, CPU, hard drives, etc) and explaining what they are and how they work at a high level.
I asked her if she had any questions. She thought about it for a bit, and then she asked, “Dad, do you have a social life.”
It was all I could do to not laugh and make her feel bad. Although, later I think she figured out what she said and tried to cover it with “I don’t even know what a social life is.”
I like the face and the water splashing around so this image is the photo of the day. 2nd place for the photo of the day is also here for you to enjoy. It fell to second because she was too much in shadow.
(Evan was being crabby, so I didn’t get him to do some cool pool poses. Next time.
7 years ago (in just about an hour and a half from when I’m posting this) my life changed forever when Dinah was born. She’s kept me going for 7 years, and hopefully I’ve been doing the same. She’s become an articulate, creative, and caring little girl, a great big sister, and a joy to have around.
