Be the hermit you don't want to see in the world.
This old boy is Buddy. He's 14, and belongs to my ex & kids. I'm watching him while she's out of town.
In spite of the fact that he's a Very Good Boy, I'm refusing to share my pizza. Clearly I'm a cad.
I'm watching 72 Cutest Animals with my kids. My 10yo keeps getting mad that there are animals other than penguins on the list and my 7yo keeps yelling "So much cuter than a penguin!" about every animal just to annoy his brother.
Me: [Walks out of a store, without buying anything]
Employee at register: Did you find everything okay?
10yo: Hey, dad!
Me: [continues sleeping]
10yo: Wanna see my Lego spaceship?
Me: [continues sleeping]
10yo: Oh, you're sleeping
Me: [stirs slightly, confused]
10yo: [describes Lego spaceship in detail for 20 minutes for some reason]

Have you ever started a toot on your phone, but then wanted to finish writing it on your computer? I do this frequently when posting a picture that I've taken on my phone, but I want a real keyboard to type the description.
Well, there is a simple solution. Post it, in the incomplete form with visibility set to "Direct" but don't mention anyone.
Then, later use the "Delete & re-draft" option, and change the visibility to public.
Since there are so many new people here recently, I thought it might be a good time to invite anyone who is interested to join in on doing #handwriting practice.
The only rules are:
- Use the #handwriting tag if you want others to find your posts.
- Try to encourage others.
There are many different word lists going around & you can pick whichever one you like. I try to post the list I'm using with my words each day, in case you want to use the same list.
Welcome & enjoy!
tired: eye contact
wired: thigh contact
My friends and I trying to make summer end.
I think dudes should comment on each others mastodon selfies the way girls comment on each others Instagram ones
I find it very interesting to see Mastodon used so frequently to discuss how to use some of its various features properly, such as content warnings and image descriptions.
I frequently struggle with creating software that will be easy to use, and with finding ways to help users understand and take advantage of features.
Mastodon doesn't seem to have done anything particularly novel to do this, but the community has.
bob's burgers got a lot better when i realised it was about the kids and not the parents
kinda like how simpsons is much better when you grow up and realise it's about homer and marge and not the kids
