An Audio Aumbarrassment

This is my test of Audioblogger. It's a moronic idea and, in the hands of someone like myself, will only end in tears... somewhere. I make no excuses for what you are about to hear. It is simply the ramblings of a 41 year old man, sitting in his basement while reading a story written by his son. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to continue the search for my last shred of dignity.

You totally sound cooler on television.




...Oh, and your son is a genius.

You should totally do a tag team children's book. Your son tells the main story (for the kids) and you make comments and asides (only visible by the parents wearing special glasses). I'll expect a royalty check for this million dollar idea in the near future.

Dontcha just love the stories kids come up with? Well. I do anyway.LOL!!! My kids always make up weird stories....and I believe that they believe the things they are saying...truly I do.
Great to hear your voice from abroad, isnt the internet amazing aye? I will see if I can master this feat myself sometime soon..right now I have to go and be referee between the 5 and 9 year old kids here because they are about to do somethin bad to each other..
Cheers Cazzie!!!

Not Chris--remember, TV adds ten pounds to my voice.

Dave--That is a million dollar idea and I will get right on it. I'm glad I thought of it.

Cazzie--I do love the crazy stories my kids come up with. Like the one where I'm supposedly their real father. That one kills me!

This is the coolest site I have run across in a long time. Instead of working today I read it from beginning to end. It is my hope that someday I will be as awesome a parent as you appear to be.

{IRA GLASS} This week...on This American Life...A dad goes on vacation but still want to keep in touch...He'll later find out that his ramblings about boogers caused one woman to have a baby... His stunning audio recordings coming up next.

And thanks, jjs! But believe me, if you want to be an awesome parent, just do the opposite of everything you read here. Your future kids will thank you for it.

I just had what sounded like a little cocktail party of chockys filling my room because in my effort to stop the narrative (no offense to Mr. Z), I repeatedly hit the audioblogger button, thereby unleashing chocky after chocky after chocky. They all seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Oh, Seester. Was it at least in 4 part harmony? (And by the way, Mr. Z does take offense.) Besides, you should get back to work with the crazy people, and the hospitals and the flayvin.
