Every once in a while, I get the urge to write and I just canít seem to stop.  Now, notice I said nothing about the quality of that writing, just that I canít stop writing.  This urge usually comes in the middle of the night when I am supposed to be sleeping and my parents think I am.  The key is to make as little noise as possible so that no one else knows what I am doing.  Not that I would be in trouble or anything, but never the less I would rather not be bugged when I am trying to write.  Usually these sessions donít produce anything other than ramblings, but some of them do get later refined into the finely tuned writings that I post on my website.  Other times, the material just gets thrown into the trash and forgotten about. 

 

Itís hard though, given that I am just 18 months old and most kids my age can barely talk, for me to be able to spell, type and spout out coherent thoughts (quit laughing) is quite an accomplishment.  Never the less, I have worked hard to be able to do it and so I am happy to share my abilities with all of you who have the pleasure of reading my drivel.  On the other hand, without someone to read this stuff there would not be much point in writing it now would there???? 

 

Itís amazing the amount of material that the human brain is able to absorb, process and remember.  I am constantly amazed by my own ability to remember things.  Sometimes though my mind works better than my body; take for instance my ability to use a spoon.  How many times do you suppose that I have seen someone use a spoon?  Even at my age it would have to be at least in the hundreds, right?  So, you would think by now that I would be able to do it without any problem, well that just does not seem to be the case.  I would say on average that I am able to pick up the spoon 95% of the time, I can get food on the spoon (of course it depends a lot on the type of food) about 50% of the time but I am only able to get the spoon into my mouth about 25% of the time.  I can visualize the entire process in my mind and it always works, but in practice it doesnít go quite as well.   Thank God that I always have my fingers as a backup!

 

I really intended this message to let you in on the inner Cole, but I just had a thought on another topic.  Have you seen The Osbournes?  Is this not the funniest show that you have ever seen in you whole life?  Now I donít know a lot about Ozzy and I know even less about his family and their history but who cares!  This stuff is so funny.  Thank God though that they bleep out the swear words because I donít think my young ears could take it if they didnít! Is it just me or are you not able to understand anything that Ozzy says either?  I have a hard time with accents to begin with (ok, I have a problem understanding words in any language even with no accent) but he seems extra hard to understand.  Anyway, if you have not seen it I highly recommend it!

 

Ok, let me ask you a question.  Are French fries the perfect food or what?  I mean whatís not to like about them?  Of course other than the fact that they are really not very good for you!  But who cares!  If I could, they would be the only thing I eat (ok I would eat bananas and apples too, but they are not quite as much fun)!

 

Well, I suppose that I should get going.  I hear through the grapevine that we will be changing houses soon, not really sure what that means but it sounds like it might be fairly traumatic!  Anyway, Iíll give you an update just as soon as I know what is going on.

 

Until next time,

 

Cole
