Life’s Intentions

Stolen from Dre, these are things that I want my life to be about. Some are more funny than others, but I promise that I'm serious about all of them.

--To be so hilarious that people spontaneously wet themselves and shoot whatever they’re drinking out their nose after a few minutes of conversation with me

--To be able to go to sleep every night feeling good about what I’ve done that day

--To be able to bounce a quarter off my hard, tasty abs

--To be a great husband (to my wife, Katherine Heigl) and father (to my children, Horatio, Huck and Katherine Jr.)

--To be a good representation of the Baha’i Faith

--To be able to shout “who’s your daddy now SUCKA?!” in Ukrainian while dunking over someone I taught to speak and write in English in a village in Ukraine

--To be a good person

  • Aw, I love these! Even with the silly ones, you can tell what the great intention behind it really is (I like the Ukranian one especially.)

  • All of these make me smile just a little bit because as I'm reading them, I can picture you doing each one of them. Especially you yelling in Ukranian while dressed in an overcoat, scarf while thinking about using the optional gloves and earmuffs.

  • Huck is a great name for a kid - I can't think of any word that children will rhyme in order to tease that poor little hucker.

  • You're either well on your way or have already reached most of those goals, and I doubt you'll have any trouble with the rest. Except maybe that one about bouncing a quarter off your abs - you're just too fat and don't exercise enough for THAT to ever happen. :)

  • Would your fourth child (if a girl) be named Molly?

  • I don't see that one of your goals was to copy me with your new Gortex coat. You love me.

    What's next? You'll probably use my favorite line: "My name is George. I'm unemployed and live with my parents."

    I didn't realize that we had so much in common.
