When I was Nine

If nine-year-old Kyle were to talk to me now he'd say...

What happened to your dream of being a kindergarten cop?! You were going to go undercover and catch bad guys while showing kindergarten kids how cool you are. And why aren't you friends with Garrett anymore. You didn't even invite him to your wedding! He was supposed to be your best man! Oh, well, it's cool that you're married. It's cool that you can drive and buy things with credit cards and stuff. Utah's kind of boring, but you're a scientist. That's awesome! You get to where a lab coat and use a microscope! There are some things you need to do right now. First, start that knife collection that mom wouldn't let you have for fear of you sleep walking and murdering the entire family. Then, learn to play the guitar. You're no one if you're not in a band! That's pretty much it. Bye.

Wow, I think I may have disappointed nine-year-old Kyle, but I have a feeling that he'll be happy when he gets to where I am.

Sleepwalking and murder DOES happen, Kyle. I saw a Lifetime movie about it so it must be true!
