    Okay, seriously though. Where the Wild Things Are.

    And when he gets a little older, the Phantom Tollbooth. That book is directly responsible for my love of wordplay, vocabulary, and language in general.
    We love many Maurice Sendak books. I grew up reading the Little Bear books (illustrated by Sendak) and my daughter loves "A Kiss for Little Bear."

    I'll have to check out the Phantom Tollbooth as that isn't one I'm familiar with. Thanks!

    I may have. I don't know.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    When he's older, do NOT give him The Giving Tree. That shit should have been banned.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    Though I try to find the answer to all the questions they ask
    Though I know it's impossible to go living through the past

    I just read Lolita for the first time...I've seen the movie 4-5 times. I now realize that Nabokov is one of the all-time literary masters.
