Another Daddy and Daughter trip to Disneyland for the memory books. It was a cool 72 degrees and the crowds were small. With 2 diapers in my back pocket we ate lunch together at the wharf, danced to some music on Buena Vista Street, rode the carousel 5 times, rode the Little Mermaid ride (Ashtyn gets scared of the parts containing Ursula - and I’m okay with that because she buries her head in my chest and closes her eyes and it’s so sweet), we devoured a Mickey Mouse cookie, hung out with a few characters, and sat on a curb and people watched.
I love our Disney dates.
"One fun fact I learned while on the air with Keith Olbermann was that humans on the Internet are scumbags. People say children are cruel, but I was never made fun of as a child or an adult. Suddenly, my disability on the world wide web is fair game. I would look at clips online and see comments like, "Yo, why’s she tweakin?" "Yo, is she retarded?" And my favorite, "Poor Gumby-mouth terrorist. What does she suffer from? We should really pray for her." One commenter even suggested that I add my disability to my credits: screenwriter, comedian, palsy."
