What was your best day?

For all those who have been following my blog in recent weeks, I don’t have the strength or the will to write about what happened today. Physically, emotionally, psychologically, I’m spent. I’m broken.

Instead, here’s a quote from the movie City Slickers that sums it up far better than I could right now.

Mitch: Alright Ed, your best day, what was it, twins in a trapeze, what?

Ed: No, I don’t wanna play.

Mitch: C’mon, we did it.

Ed: I don’t feel like it.

Mitch: Uh, okay.


Ed: I’m 14 and my mother and father are fighting again… y’know, because she caught him again. Caught him… This time the girl drove by the house to pick him up. And I finally realized, he wasn’t just cheating on my mother, he was cheating on us. So I told him, I said, “You’re bad to us. We don’t love you. I’ll take care of my mother and my sister. We don’t need you any more.” And he made like he was gonna hit me, but I didn’t budge. And he turned around and he left. He never bothered us again. Well, I took care of my mother and my sister from that day on. That’s my best day.

Phil: What was your worst day?

Ed: Same day.

  1. I’ve been reading your blog for the past few years after hearing you speak at a conference. I noticed you haven’t uploaded in a while and wanted to check in and see how you’re doing


    • Hi, thanks for the concern. In truth, after my last post I lost pretty much everything it’s possible to lose – wife, kids, home, health – so I’m taking a little time out to build myself back up, process all that’s gone on for the last 12 years, and prepare myself for the next leg of this journey called life. Rest assured, I very much intend to remain an Aspie Daddy, and to return to blogging once the current unpleasantness has reached some kind of resolution.

      Thanks again for checking up on me.


  2. I take it the princesses have left the castle.
    Just commenting to let you know people are thinking about you and rooting for you and crying with you.

    • Thank you for your thoughts. Unfortunately, despite a valiant fight, the knight was badly wounded and outnumbered, and for his own safety was forced to flee the castle alone. He is recovering in a secret valley, slowly regaining his strength, and preparing for the day he can once more take up his sword and protect the little princesses.
