Something my wife actually said to me a while back: "Matt Pulle told me that all you ever do during the day is write on that blog."
Thanks, Matt. (How's Texas by the way?)
Anyway, every guy (especially every married guy) knows that that essentially means "you should probably be doing something productive for me/our family/our home/etc. instead of that." So, I am setting out to prove that blogs actually add value to our daily lives. If you guys can help me out, you will do blogdom proud.
Here's my bleg: I am looking for a certified
swimming instructor to teach my almost three-year old to swim on a one-on-one basis. He is an excellent swimmer for his age--goes completely underwater without any problem, can float on his own somewhat, jumps right in without fear, etc. He is from what I can tell (and have been told) well beyond what those group lessons we have at the Y, etc. can offer.
So, does anyone have any names? If so, please contact me at rogertn -at- comcast.net.
(I promise I won't make a habit of doing this kind of thing in the future.)
UPDATE: Yes, I know
that I am abusing my access to this blog for personal gain. But I am trying to show a skeptic that blogs are great! The means justify the ends here. They really do.
UPDATE II: The Publisher has helpfully pointed out to me that there are classifed ads for this sort of thing. The unspoken message was that those ads help to pay people at and affiliated with the Scene
, like, for instance, um, me. But we're talking about the greater good here! This is science dammit! (OK, it's not really science, but that sounds good right?)
