Reunion



So here's the story Biggy told Lola:

Instead of going to work today (for which he risked getting fired), he drove a hundred miles to the Cobb County dump and spent hours--in the hot sun and pouring rain--sifting through egg shells, dirty Q-tips, and dead bodies until he found Spiderman, whereupon he took the toy to a special superhero drycleaner who removed the blood, coffee grounds, and baby poop (and who, unfortunately, removed as well Lo's lovely glitter-paint-decorations) so it looked BRAND NEW.

Isn't he THE BEST DAD EVER?!








Yes, everything is back to normal.

that's a cute little story and all, but what did you guys do to make things up to jack? i'm betting you did nothing.

Biggy said...

I took him to Zaxby's after band practice tonight. Food always works.

zaxby's is a start. if jack has any special requests from ny, i'll be glad to bring him something.

And by next week, it will stuck in some corner and never touched again. Kids are so fickle.

How many stores did Biggy have to go to before he found another Spidey doll like that?

why didn't you just buy another one, biggy? one time i had to dig through the pizza hut dumpster for my retainers. okay, my mom had to. but still.

Biggy said...

Because I'm the Best.Dad.Ever. Only an average dad would take the easy way out.

"true dat," biggy. I say, real love is digging through a filthy dumpster for someone.

Or claiming you did...

either way, its cool of you to have replaced him. my parents would have just said "tough shit, kid" and then if i cried they would have threatened to "give me something to cry about." they were cool like that.

Thor won't let us throw ANYTHING away, let alone toys. Believe me, I understand.

A list of things that El Nino won't let us throw away:

1. Two stereo speakers from the mid-80's
2. A bouquet of primroses, now extremely dead
3. A very itchy throw blanket
4. An enormous, white kitchen trash can from Target
5. A ziplock bag-ful of playdough bricks
6. A tv that can no longer change channels
7. Two cushions from a couch long thrown out.

all i'm saying is that its wednesday and its time for a new post. i'm over this one.

MCALDWELLC said...

wait, MF, maybe we should encourage Tania to post to other people's blogs and not post more pictures of her favored child to her own blog...though the kid is damn cute.

Thursday and no new post? Get it in gear over there, sister.
