Lil Lookout and 2.0 had to go into the ped's yesterday for a checkup. LL needed the full physical so he's standing naked. I should mention that Lil Lookout has no modesty and if the soccer thing doesn't work out he can always fall back on a porn career. He is a bit large down there and has a perpetual hard on. Well, the doctor was slightly taken aback when he saw that and said "what is that?"

Lil Lookout calmly put his hands on his hips, puffed his chest out, and declared, "That's my King Cobra, I carry it everywhere." All with a straightface.

The doctor turned beat red and fell out of his chair laughing. Mrs L was still horrified when they got home.

no, no specific thread. it has been covered in bits and pieces in a number of places and a bit more extensively in chat. very long and drawn out story cut short.

papers were drawn up and we didn't see or speak to each other for a month except to drop LL off. During that time sobriety reared its ugly head and some chemical issues were dealt with. It was a rocky road and a hard decision but neither of us wanted the divorce so we didn't. We worked things out. Sobriety is good. Life is better.

I salute you, and Mrs L.

Funny things they say....

SonofV, our budding stoic: " ".

It wasn't what he said, it was what he didn't say. We were walking (walking home by way of McDonalds after an afternoon of orienteering and hiking, about 8 miles) along and he chose a path off the sidewalk, following a somewhat more direct line to McDs. He was watching where he was putting his feet as he walked under the sign for the little shopping plaza. He was watching his feet but not his clearance and consequently smacked his head on the corner of the bracket holding up the sign.

I didn't hear the "gong" or the meaty smack that must have followed, nor did I hear him cuss or cry. He was entitled to, though. When I saw him rubbing his head and he told me what happened, I looked and saw blood trickling down over a nice goose egg. He's ok, nothing a bandage and a sackful of double cheeseburgers couldn't salve. But I would have turned the air blue.

versus, Lil Lookout who was startled by an unexpected incoming soccer ball and shouted "oh shit!" without a second thought. Great mouth for a 6 year old.

As we were watching an episode of The Twilight Zone, Rod Serling delivered one of his inimitable closing monologues and SonofV said quietly, almost to himself "That guy is a genius."

The girl is getting communicative enough to request specific things, like "ruff-ruff yogurt" at the grocery store. That's yogurt with a picture of the Blue's Clues dog. What's funny is that she's never even seen Blue's Clues, as far as I know. But she MUST HAVE the "ruff-ruff yogurt" lol

Minifob has this book, called "How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Friends?" (it's one of a series of books about how dinosaurs do things the right or wrong way, and he loves them all.) He often repeats the phrase "play friends," and his favorite part is the last page where the dinosaur is getting hugged by his little human friends.

So today, he's interacting with his baby sister in her swing, and he suddenly leans forward and kisses her on the cheek and tells me "play friends." It was freaking adorable.
