Bones... For Real

So this is odd.

I've been blogging for... seven years. Just over. And I've talked about my kids, told the funny stories, and carried on in general.

My Dad and I have discussed whether other people think the stories are as funny as we do since we actually KNOW the cast of characters. We know what they sound like, how they move, what they're like.

But after seven years, I think most of you have something in your head. In one way or another, you think Bones is funny, even if you don't know what he looks like. It's like reading a book. You develop the character in your head.

So I've wondered... by showing you him... does that ruin it or make it better?

I dunno.

We'll see.

Bones had to perform a monologue in school today. This isn't really Take 1. It's take three or four. He was hesitant to let me tape him, but when I showed him the issues he was having with swaying... he saw the good in being able to see himself.

So here you go. Bones performing... The Patch. It's his very first monologue. He leaves out his name in the beginning... per my request. The first part is he and I going at it about the video. Then he... gets into character. Its a joke between us. This is afterall... Take Three.

BTW, the last three words in this, in case you cannot understand him is, "wear eye patches?"

You can kind of see the camera move as I start to laugh. Takes one and two were really funny. There were issues, but they were funny.

Oh, he is good! and I do see the camera shake just a bit right at the end, where you must have been giggling! Thanks for sharing Bones with us!

He is SO good!! You have done a FABULOUS job!! He is articulate, talented, funny, he has great timing, he is smart - OMG - you should be so proud, especially since he has driven you nuts over the years.....I absolutely LOVED his monologue.

I cannot believe how much he's grown since I've seen y'all! And he is still simply enchanting. lol

And it's great to hear your voice. It's been too long!

OMG...he is sooo good! Brilliant!

Move on out here to Los Angeles. He's Oscar material. You can quit your day job! (Really...you might want to think about that. He was impressive.)

He's a funny guy. Debate is a good thought! He debates me enough in this house. I say to him all the time, "Does this look like Let's Make a Deal?

Tammi- I'd not thought of the fact nobody has heard me before either. Yet another thing I wonder about... people put a voice in their heads. I'm sure I don't sound like that in their heads. Hell, I don't sound like that in MY head...

He took this Drama class as an elective. It's his 3rd favorite class, behind his two singing classes.

G said she loves YAYA when she watched this then gave me the more symbol.
I thought it was great too!

Bones is fantastic! He cracks me up just standing there, so yes, I think being able to put a face with the stories just enhances them.

Great stuff, just wonderful! :)

He's not swaying. He's got sea legs!

So, can "Politicians wear eye patches?"

Bones has got acting chops, for sure.
