    The buck stops…I dunno, over there somewhere

    I realize there are still a few months left, but I’m giving Alice the award for Best Post Title 2005 for this one. Need I say that the post itself is of heirloom quality also?

      Thank you! “Heirloom” indeed :)

    2. Sean Kinsell says:

      Yes, “heirloom” indeed. If there’s one thing men on my team are good at, it’s appraising artifacts.

    3. Zak says:

      Actually, I’ve come to blame my child’s (14 months) shortcomings on you, Sean.

    4. Sean Kinsell says:

      Okay, this should be good. I’m assuming you’re not taking the “queers are causing the downfall of society” line. Is it my complicated relationships with facial hair?

    5. Zak says:

      No reason. Just pique and a desire to shift all responsibility away from myself.

      Of course, this is entirely hypothetical as my son HAS no shortcomings.

      I’m sure he doesn’t, buddy. : )

      BTW, none of my business, but are you and your wife speaking to him in just Japanese? Just English? Both?

    7. Zak says:

      I’m speaking to him in English, and she in Japanese. Of course, we speak to each other in Japanese, even in front of him. This is a habbit I’ve tried to break, but it’s really, really, hard.

      I figure he’ll get “kitchen English” from me, but the rest of his environment is so slanted towards Japanese that I’m resigned to ponying up for international school if I want him to attain true fluency in English.
