That picture reminds me of the childhood story WifeGeeding told me of the time her prosthetic eye fell out after jumping off a diving board.
WifeGeeding’s friend and pre-school daughter was at a fast food establishment and noticed a man that looked like Santa Clause. The little girl approached the man and asked if he was Santa. He gleefully replied he was and handed her something similar to a business card that had a picture of him wearing a Santa suit interacting with a little child along with some cheerful messages.
I was flipping through radio stations on the way home a “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” was playing on two different stations, which is odd considering how old the song is. That usually happens only with Top 40 hits.
I used to avoid any Super Bowl commercials that appear online before the actual event because I like sharing the moment of seeing something new with my friends and family. But now I just go ahead and watch them so I can take a bathroom break when they come on. Yes, I could use the power of the DVR, but when it comes to sports, I have to watch it live and it I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my Twitter feed.
DaughterGeeding was ill and I had to take her out of school. After a nap she felt better but I told her she couldn’t do anything “fun” like watch her favorite cartoons because she was supposed to be in school (trying to set a precedent, don’t want her thinking she can get pulled out of school to hang with Daddy anytime she wants), so I had her do her homework. When she was finished I asked what would she normally be doing at school if she wasn’t home, and she mentioned science time, so I had her watch “Bill Nye The Science Guy” on Netflix. When she first saw an episode, months ago, she didn’t enjoy it. But this time, she couldn’t get enough of it and wanted to replicate the experiments after each episode.
All I heard last week was that Charlie Strong was about to lose the head coaching gig at Texas because of poor recruiting, then yesterday all I heard was how great a recruiting class he was getting. Typically I don’t care for national signing day because it only inflates the heads of a bunch of jocks with senior-itus. However, I always felt that if Strong got to spend time with a kid and his mother, he’d win her over because of the man he wants to turn her child into. You win the mom, you win the boy. He’s gotten plenty of attention for his stance of respecting women and not making players feel entitled.
In a caged fight, I’m certain Dalton from Roadhouse would defeat John Rambo from the Rambo movies. However, if the contest was more of the Hunger Games variety, Rambo would easily win. I’ll go one step further, if Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Predatorwas part of the contest, Rambo would defeat him as well. The only problem is, I doubt Rambo (GIF) or Dutch (GIF) could ever find each other.
