I'm sitting here on the bench in my
foyer watching the kids outside play basketball and ride their
bikes. I've been stewing over my Friday post, off and on, for the

One of my favorite bloggers is D.J. Over at Thoughts From Paris. He writes a, mostly, humor blog about day-to-day stuff in his life (he's the one that wrote about pooping his pants at age 26). Anyway, he has a knack for writing about everyday things, but making them entertaining and funny. So, after I finished banging my head against the wall over my post, I visited his blog to study his craft. To see how he does it: how he makes the everyday, entertaining.
