The story of me, an American in Edinburgh, Scotland finding my place as a musician, a husband, a father and a Christian.


Today's Adventure in Education!

Teacher (after a long explanation of how vocal inflection plays a critical role in language): "You can change a statement into a question simply by raising the pitch of your voice at the end of the sentence."

Me: "You can change a statement into a question simply by raising the pitch of your voice at the end of the sentence?"

Teacher (after deep sigh): "Yes. Here, let me explain it again..."

    I'm rather curious about the identity of the prof in question.


    Becky (who wishes she had a condiment for a nickname)

    Don't be too jealous, Becky. Not everyone can live up to the greasy, artery-clogging, fat-laden health of my nickname. Hmm... maybe I should worry about being called that.

    The pop tart, though. Mmm.
