Angela Makes This Look Easy

Author's Precaution: This post is being written by a biology major.  The author respects your choice to avoid this post, but would encourage you to read and share as a means of ending the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding biology majors.  Thanks!

            I am here to announce that Angela will not be providing a post for today.  It is not due the fact that she has nothing to say.  Far from it.  It is just that our daughter needs extensive mommy time tonight and is running a pretty good fever.  I, her husband, will be filling in. Normally on days like this it is no big deal to not write a post, but since Angela is trying to complete the NaBloPoMo challenge she asked me to fill in for the day.  To those that are still reading, Thanks.      

            Sitting down at the computer tonight I don’t really know what to write about.  I am amazed by Angela and her ability to write tight entertaining posts that are funny and insightful without becoming rambling diatribes.  There seems to be many people out in the “blogosphere” that believe that everybody should hear what they have to say without having anything to say.

            So what do I have to say?  After surviving another week teaching science in a state juvenile corrections institution I have a lot to say, but I would like to stay positive so I will not talk about work.  Instead I will only say good stuff.  I love my wife and family.  Contrary to one of my wife’s recent posts my life doesn’t blow.  I think that my wife’s blog is great (not just more than adequate) and I am proud that she is brave enough to share herself, even though I know my mom is reading it.  That is about it for now.  Maybe next time I may be inspired to share some of my brilliant insights on today’s world or an amusing anecdote from my past but compared to Angela I am not very interesting and I would rather play with my son before he goes to bed.  In closing I just want to thank all of the people that read my wife’s blog.



  1. Yes, so sweet of you! I'm a biologist too. I have a PhD and spent years in the industry in CA before retiring early when we moved across the country last year. Now I'm trying to write a blog. See, you can do it!

  2. Awesome that you filled in. Hope your daughter is feeling okay.

  3. I love that you did this. You and Angela give me much hope for the rather battered institution of marriage. Excellent teamwork!
