Things That Make Me Laugh

Things have been kind of crazy here, in a good way mostly, with school and such.

Bones likes his new school. He told me last week that the only kids he had met that wouldn't talk to him were the 'big black 8th grade girls' and the bass section of the Choir. As of this week, he cares not what the boys in the bass section think, but he has made progress with the black girls who now call him, "Little Dude" or as he says, "You know in that ghetto way they talk? Lil' dude..."

Progress.

Mr. T continues to enjoy school having made the flag football team as a wide receiver. He tried out so he'd have someone to play catch with. The kid would spend hours and hours playing catch if he had someone to throw with. It's like having a Golden Retriever as a son. He's enjoying it.

Ringo is sporting his permanent cast now, choosing... purple. A bright purple it is to which I replied upon seeing it, "that might keep you up at night with the glow" and "Dang, you're going all metrosexual on me..." You can tell where the girls have signed as they put little hearts near their names. I asked if I could sign it and he said 'NO.'

He is getting some facial hair, very little. I noticed a bit of a rash yesterday on the side of his face where whiskers should be coming in shortly. This conversation took place:

Me: You have a little hurricane there... (touching a cowlick located right under his 'sideburn')

Ringo: Yeah.

Me: You'll be shaving in the next year.

Ringo: Yeah.

Me: When you shave, I want you to grow lambchops! GREAT BIG Monster lambchops!

Ringo: WHAT?

Me: YES! They'll grow in nice and thick. Your dad has a thick beard. Big thick lambchops.

Ringo: I DON'T want LAMBCHOPS! Why would you say that?

Me: Because... I CAN'T grow them! I'm living vicariously through YOU!

Ringo, staring at me like I'm insane: Right.

Me: I'll come up with some great stuff for you to grow. It'll only take a couple weeks each time...

Ringo: *blink*

Dang. I don't think he's game.

As I perused some blogs today, I found THIS really funny post at Eric's. Well, I thought it was funny. My favorite line is: Besides, they'd all been drinking..."

Anyway, half way through, this movie clip ran through my head. Enjoy. You know what they say, "Family, you can't live with them and you just can't kill them with an axe shoot 'em.

And for my sister and brother... our favorite:

Heh- I think you need to sneek into his room at night and sign his cast with something like,
'Who's Your Mommy??'
