After the Oak Park resident began writing the column, Huppke jokingly declared himself “America’s Most-Beloved Workplace Advice Columnist.” No one ever questioned that, so he has humbly embraced the title.

Inspiration: Living Life Mindfully - Home Game

When author Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. Feeling like a stranger in a strange land, he often felt puzzled at the gap between what he thought he should be feeling and what he actually felt. While he expected to be overcome by joy, he often felt puzzled; expecting to feel worried over a child's illness or behavior, instead he often felt indifferent.
