Turquoise Robot Turtles - Approved For Safe Keeping

I'm thinking of changing my name to Safe Keeping. Then I'll go around to all the banks and ask the tellers, "You know all those people who left their money here for Safe Keeping? Well, I'm here and I'd like to make a withdrawal please."

I now work for a large company. That means there's a form for everything. Rather than being annoyed at this, I've decided to have some fun. I've noticed that my manager automatically approves every access request I submit, no questions asked. Then the next person up the chain approves her approval without asking questions. So I think I'm going to submit odd stuff, like "Need access to CEO's limo", or "Request increase to robot development / Cornuts fund".

I'm still writing Changeup. I've got several more chapters written...but I don't like any of it. I'm trying to decide what to do about it before posting any more.

Evan is learning words at an alarming pace. He's also learning words I wouldn't expect him to yet. My buddy's mom was showing him her necklace, which was made of many different colored stones.

BM: Can you say 'brown'?


BM: How about 'red'?


BM: This one's turquoise.

Evan: Turquoise!

Everybody: WHAT?!?

Evan: Turtle?

What was the craziest thing you said as a kid?
