• My fantasy is to deliver a eulogy in which I simply say “So what?”
• The only way to know a teen in a movie is ashamed to be out with his parents is to have him wearing headphones.
• The Egyptians didn’t worship cats nearly as much as the Internet.
• I’ll never forget where I was the day I learned to add page numbers to a word doc.
• Not being able to sleep is the new sleep

I got 99 problems, but I’m avoiding them all.
My friend John, however, is attacking them. Last week, he flew to Europe to shoot a role, and lost his bag at Heathrow. Fuming, he did what men have done for centuries when faced with a dilemma: created a video in his hotel room as revenge. Pretty damn impressive, considering the limitations.

That’s pretty much all I know about having or raising kids. But I do understand better about a child leaving the nest, thanks to Rob Lowe. He wrote a very enlightening chapter in his latest book about dropping off his older son at college for the first time last year, and how bittersweet it was for the whole family. I gave the book to my friend John, who just flew across the country to drop his older daughter off UConn.
In the midst of their trip, John’s family went out to eat, and above their table was Rob Lowe’s signed headshot.
Now, I don’t really believe in signs from the universe, but if I did, that sure was something.
