marketing spin, homestyle

i've been traveling a bunch lately, much to the chagrin of my 9 year-old daughter. yesterday morning, she was again complaining that i'm never home. a good father might try to explain why he's been gone so much lately, or vow to lead a more balanced life moving forward. instead, i told her i was promoting her, from daughter to captain. it cost me an extra $1 a week in an allowance raise, and now i have to salute her every morning.

and while it quieted her complaining, it made me realize how easily the business of marketing can take over your personal life.
