2. I finished Bossy Pants by Tina Fey in one night. Yep, I'm exhausted, but what a good read. I noticed that the parts I liked best were about
3. SNL doing the news update. How many laughs did I get from that? I'll probably never know. A lot.
That's right. I was up late reading Bossy Pants until about three. I remember it being somewhere around two or so when I thought, "Meh. Only forty more pages and I'll have finished it in one evening. Let's do it." As I may have bragged about on here before, I've been making my wife's breakfast (code for: putting milk in a container so she can have oatmeal once she gets to work, along with some fruit snacks and a piece of fruit or two). Well, this morning, when she woke me up to 'make breakfast' she asked if I was awake, and I said "not really," or something of the like, with an air of, "Could you grab your own milk this morning." I'm not sure what question she followed up with, but I do remember thinking, "That wasn't really a question, that was a command in question form." So, I got out of bed and 'made breakfast.'
My reasons for starting making breakfast are two fold, and may rest on your philosophical beliefs about human nature. On the one hand (if you believe humans have agency and genuinely care about each other) I was sad when I heard about how my wife would get sick during the day because she ate no breakfast. On the other hand (and this one is for all you die hard Darwinians) I also heard that eating breakfast was a part of having a healthy, happy baby. So, with both of my hands, I decided to start
I've been doing it with little complaint until this morning, but this morning's thoughts made me think, "Does me not wanting to do this make me a bad person?" I mean, I was super tired, but it would seem that one would want to make their spouse happy right? This then got me thinking about what actually would make someone a bad person. Where is that line? Or was Rodgers right all along and there really aren't bad people, just bad actions and labeling them as bad is a great way to label ourselves as bad, which will only lead to a belief that we cannot change our bad actions because they make up who we are, and who we are is a bad person. I personally like Rodgers's ideas, because I don't like thinking that people are bad, because I'm a soft hearted dork.
So, I guess what I'm getting at here is, should I feel guilty about this morning, or chalk it up to part of the human experience and realize that waking up at six thirty will never be awesome when you've stayed up until three or four reading, no matter how much you love your spouse and unborn child. I don't know. To be completely honest, I'm kind of over it. I'm just blogging about it because I find it interesting and want to know what people think. To be honest, maybe it was bad of me to feel that way. To be even more honest, maybe Rogers was full of it and it really does make me a bad person. In any case, I'd like to know what you think.
Have a nice day.
