The views and opinions expressed in O'Keefe's Briefs(tm) are not necessarily those of The Management. In fact, they are very likely not even the views and opinions of the writer, the typeface designer, god or the President of the United States. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who shares the extraordinary worldview expressed below, and should you, run. Far and fast. The Management would also like to point out that any references or similarities to any persons living, dead, or undead are entirely coincidental since we all know there are no such things as zombies anyhow.

Sentimental Fool That I Am

Like autumn leaves in a gale, I send my words out into the future. Forgive me, I'm feeling a little sappy. I'll get over it.

So the other day I set up an email for my daughter. I haven't told her yet, she can't read any way so I doubt she will care much. Now when the mood strikes I can send her an email. Maybe some random thought I wanted to share. Something I know she is too young for now, but I will likely forget. Like I said. I'm feeling a little sappy. But I look around at the world we live in and hope that it isn't actually getting worse, but I am merely more aware. I hope she is as ignorant of how shitty people are to one another as I was (until far later in my life than I care to admit.)

There you have it. I made an email for my daughter so I can send her thoughts and advice as I feel fit. I'll give her the address and password when she's older, so she can read all of the words I've sent to her over the years, and perhaps she can figure out how goddamned much I lover her.  Listen, the world needs a little bit of sappiness from time to time. Besides, maybe I can spin this into a career as a Mommy-blogger, but like a dad. So yeah, a Daddy-blogger.
