Meet Telling Dad
This is about as serious as I get. If I get really ticked, and we’re talking Hulk-green ticked, then maybe I’ll raise my eyebrow a touch higher, but it’s rare when I’m forced to break out this behavior-paralyzing gaze.
I’m a work-at-home dad, I’m married to a wonderful woman, and I’m surrounded by three children.
Every. Single. Day.
Working from home isn’t easy. It requires serious discipline and this is a trait that struggles to make an appearance on a daily basis.
It’s also rare to tell someone that I work from home without seeing them rustle through their pockets in search of loose change. I do work. I simply work for myself. I don’t see me laying myself off any time soon.
What kind of blog is this?
When visiting my blog you can expect more than just a sharing of what our family is up to on a daily basis. Quite frankly, we’re really not all that exciting. As a case in point just consider my Pulitzer-worthy post on scorpion terror. Or my profound take on Whine Country.
Someone once had the audacity to ask what my blog was all about.
I was stumped.
Blindsided by such an off-the-wall probing question I waited for the palpitations to subside, and then replied simply, “It’s about me”.
It’s about what I go through and experience as a work-from-home dad. It’s about my family and the life, love, and laughter we share. And it’s about my often random take on a bunch of topics that people probably won’t give a fuzzle about.
But in the end, the blog exists for me, and if people happen to like it enough to read it? Then I’ll truly be honored.
And equally shocked.
What kind of guy are you?
Let’s just sum it all up by saying that I have never, and will never, be a “Something Guy”. I wracked my brain trying to label myself as a “______ Guy” and couldn’t. I suppose you can just refer to me as a Nothing Guy.
Car Guys talk about cars. Tool Guys talk about tools. Nothing Guys like me talk about nothing. I don’t know jack about cars, and this includes jacks. I’m a walking hazard around tools. I don’t hunt. I don’t drink. I don’t ogle women at strip clubs. I don’t like getting dirty. And I wipe sauce off chicken wings one napkin at a time.
What I am is a Dad. I love my family, I love what I do, and I love interacting with people. I suppose, in reflection, I’m a “Family Guy”. But that moniker is already taken by a fat slob with a talking dog. I’ll have to keep thinking.

But first, take a quick moment and just let me know you’re here. Add a little hello in the Comment area below. I love fan mail and it’s a nice way of saying, “Greg…I think I love you”, without actually having to say it.
Of course, copying and pasting that statement is always worth bonus karma.
