“Magsy, please don’t stand on Miles Davis”

September 27, 2008

So I put together (actually recreated) the Many Hats Creative music studio and have started teaching. Here’s a photo:

Last weekend while moving some of the wall hangings back in to the studio, Mags walked across the posterboard of my huge French Miles Davis poster, prompting the comment and this post. (I’d put the poster on the floor to flatten it out and to try to figure out which wall to put it on.)

When people ask me about being a father or grandfather, I frequently comment that “it’s the only time in your life you get to say certain things . . . like, ‘Green beans don’t belong in your nose’ or to explain things like (actual conversation with Kim, Mags’ Mom), “Well, no, eating poop won’t kill you, but it could make you very sick, and it probably doesn’t taste very good . . . no, I haven’t tried it. I’m not really sure why dogs do that. Dogs do a lot of things that you shouldn’t do.”

Just one of the great joys of being a parent . . .
