I Don't Want to See Your Baby Pictures

Unless I have a vested interest in your child, I don't want to see photographic proof of their evolution through babyhood. I know that many people do (mostly women), but it has absolutely no interest to me.

That's why people mass e-mailing videos and pictures of their children has always struck me as weird.

But, I was thinking about it more the other day. It's a God thing, isn't it? The same way that God ferociously loves all of his wonderful disgusting little children is a perfect reflection of our photo obsession.

We're proud. And we want to show off. And that's a beautiful thing. So, I'll try to feign joy in your little aliens until I fully get it.

Is there anything else I can't do, say, or send without offending you?

ok, you don't count. You're my best friend, and I have a huge vested interest in little "Erica's" life. The example stems back to a series of e-mails sent by an unfamiliar co-workers years back.

haha...I don't know...I can put little Gwyneth's sonogram pictures away when you visit. She really looks like an alien now.

But, I'm still going to drink a beer, then tell you about how awesome it is.

Matt, did you just reveal the baby's name or is this a joke I don't get??? :)

Actually, we are going to name her Oprah....or it's a secret. hehe









Oprah is 3rd on a list of worst female baby names behind Florida and Jezebel.

They say if God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. That thought always made me smile.

God has a refrigerator. And it's full of Jolly Rancher soda.

Don't stop believing, Eric. Hold on to the feeeeeling.
