To my son Tommy,
You really are a sensitive soul. Even digital creations receive your compassion and mercy. Your mom and you were playing minecraft today while I worked on some work coding from home (and on the side totally screwed up this blog layout and realized I cannot revert till I get to my work laptop). I am not sure how the conversation came about but the next thing I know you were crying because your mom was killing a sheep and thus going to leave a little lamb without a mommy. It is good to not be the bad guy for once. But your mom is correct, it is only a game...a game that has shown us her sadistic sheep hating tendencies. I hope she sees the humor when she reads this. Otherwise she might graduate from sheep killing on a video game to something much more detrimental to my health.
Sincerely with love from your non-sheep-killing dad,
