Sunday is just another day to Rakes.

I REALLY hope this isn't a glimpse into the future.

Rakes sporting a really bad tattoo and looking like some 4 year old version of James Dean in "Rebel without a Cause". Also, notice the pistol he somehow rigged up to hang from the back of his shirt. I'm still trying to figure out how he did that. Finally, take a look at his eyes; you ever seen a 4 year old give you the chills? He looks like Woody Harrelson in "Natural Born Killers" for God's sake.

As noted in the previous post, his Mom got him the tattoo pack last night at the grocery store and he HAD to have it put on before bed last night.

We should have thought about today being Sunday. By the time I checked on him, he'd taken his shirt off 3 times so he could, and I quote, "Show ebebybody my tattoo, Dad. Dey hadn't seen a tool tattoo like dis one, Dad!"

Yep. That's my boy. Disrobing in Sunday School to show the rest of the class his Pirate tattoo. Can somebody tell me what in the world I'm gonna do when this maniac is eligible to drive? I mean, there are rules about locking your kids in their room for 5 years and stuff.

I'm ending the day the same way I'll end every day for the next 6 months; watching a baseball game. Yeah, it's ESPN and yeah, that means Joe Morgan. Usually Morgan makes me want to stick a rusty nail in each ear while listening to The Backstreet Boys as I read poetry outloud.

Tonight? I could care less. There is real, live baseball that COUNTS on my tv and it'll be that way until the end of October. Baseball is BACK, everybody.

Which can only be considered a good thing.

Ahhh... baseball. Music to my ears. Well... sort of. Joe Morgan isn't so much but I will take what I can get. ;-)

Ted D said...

I know what you mean, Dawn.

But at least it's baseball. All of a sudden, life seems normal again.

~**Dawn**~ said...

Well all except for Redbeard rooting for Yankees anyway. ;-)

Ted D said...

Well, yeah.

I think the thrill of victory go to him.

I'm still hoping he has a bad nights sleep and DFA's them all.

Tex said...

I'm sure you are now considered to be the "cool dad" to all the 4 yr olds. :)

Tell Rakes that IS a cool does this mean I can show him mine when I come?

Baseball b a s e b a l l

He'll be able to come visit you in the funny farm...

Edge of Design said...

Have you considered writing ESPN expression your views on Morgan? They might listen. I'm with you on the tatoos. No branding for me!

Ted D said...

Tex, he would go bonkers if he saw your tattoo! Well, it's finally here: Opening Day. And while there won't be any Red Sox games, there will be baseball and plenty of it.

Horsham, knowing him, he won't come...

Edge, the guy has been there for forever it seems like. I guess enough people like him enough to keep his job.

Unless your name is "Angie" and you're married to the RSD. ;)

Rakes kills me! But bro, I'll bet money you looked the same running around in your skivvies playing "CHiPs!"

Tex said...

ChIPS??? bwahhhhaaaahaaaa!!!!

Tex said...

NOW I know what to buy the kids for their Texas gift

hee hee hee

Ted D said...

Ang is happy, Matt. Now I won't be walking around in a bad mood because there isn't any baseball on. And why you gotta go and let it out that I liked CHIPS? In fact, who DIDN'T like CHIPS? Hmm, He-Man?

Tex, don't you be laughing. I'm gonna bet you though David Hasselhoff was the stuff.

And now YOU'RE spamming me? ;)

Those are all good, Tex.

Rake's KILLS me. He's def one of a kind.

Tomorrow, baseball, preferred Red Sox, is coming back tomorrow. The saddest part is that I can't watch it ALL because I have school *curses*

Joe Morgan *shudders*

Ted D said...

Krystle, he kills me too. I just can't get away from him!!

Just tell your folks you're pulling an all night study session and watch anyway!

Wait a minute. I'm a parent too.

Scratch that, Krystle. Go to bed on time.
