I’m a total geek. That’s comfortable. I know how to do that. Drop me in a room with gadgets, gizmos, components, and a handful of wires, and I’ll be just fine. Leave me there an hour, and I’ll build you a computer, set up your home network, and still have time for a nap.
I’m a writer. That’s my job. I’m pretty good at it. Sit me down at a keyboard, give me a topic, and I’ll spin a yarn that informs, inspires, encourages, and enlightens. Leave me there an hour, and I’ll already have it sold, invoiced, and delivered to a magazine.
I’m a first-time, expectant father. That’s new. That’s different. Drop me in a room with a baby, diapers, talcum powder, and a pacifier, and I have no idea what’ll happen. Leave me there an hour, and you may find a perfectly peaceful sleepy baby with a clean bottom. Or, you may find a screaming kid in the corner stewing in his own juices while I pace the floor working the pacy like a heifer chewing cud. You never know.
I’m excited. I’m nervous. I’m calm and collected. I’m freaked out and clueless.
I’m a geeky dad, and this is my site. Welcome.
