Water Guns and Brooms

While I was recovering from The Bubonic Plague and watching the Red Sox game today, Ang took the Hooligans outside to play; somehow they convinced her to let them have a water gun fight, which resulted in Trot being what they picked for target practice.

It also gave us the following conversation:

Ciera: (While brandishing the Super Soaker water gun) "Feel my WRATH!"

Rakes: (Shooting a water pistol at random) "Feel my.... PENIS!"

Me: (Blank Stare) "He didn't hear it from me."

Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.

Eventually it was discovered this came from the movie "How to eat Fried Worms" and something about a dingle bopper; I honestly couldn't make any sense out of it.

I DO know it sent Ang into a giggle fit, which she needed after a weekend of me in bed with the flu and the three of them apparently picking NOW to audition for the circus.

On the Red Sox front, the boys completed their 3 game sweep of the Devil Rays, winning 7-3. A play at home, where The Munchkin seemingly got a tad miffed at the way Scott Kazmir was blocking the plate, gave us the picture of Tito and The Elf.

Look at how proud Francona is of his balding second baseman.

Not since Ward and The Beav has there been a better Father/Son combination in all of television.

**stares at screen in disbelief...speechless**


I'm not touching that.

Glad you're on the mend. Glad the boys put the Rays in their place. Glad the bats woke up finally.

Ted D said...


Thanks, I'm better. And better yet, the bats woke up.

And hey? He's YOUR nephew, you know. Honestly, I have no idea where he gets it from.

Tex said...

uhmm just a question. is Rakes reading SG? ;)

Ted D said...

No, silly. ;)

He can't read yet.

I've got to go back and watch that movie; another one where he's heard it recently is "E.T." which they've watched in the van.

Maybe I should just stick with The Backyardigans until he's 12?

Tree Newt said...

That would be a safe plan. It's amazing the stuff we watch and think "Man, that'd be GREAT for the kids!" Then we see it again, with them in the room, and we can't find the remote fast enough!

Ted D said...

Mattie, Princess Bride is one of his favorites, but if I'm in the van I'm turning the volume down at the fight scene.

All I need is for him to start quoting that part at play school one day!

Krystle said...

Oh Rakes. Seriously, that's just TOO funny. At least he knows what it is...right?

Thank God we swept the Rays. 24 and losing your hair? I find that almost awesome.


Ted D said...

Krystle, I'm not sure.

But the Monday after sweeping the Rays? Better than the one after they sweep the Sox.

Tex, it just hit me what you meant about the SG comments.

Slow, I am.

It's a wonder you don't have the same hairline as Pedroia, Ted... ::shaking my head::

I think Tree Newt ought to be careful, tempting the hand of fate here... ;-)

Ted D said...

Thanks for the picture, Tex. I'm so ready for next week I can't stand it.

Dawn, it's a miracle, right? And Mattie is tugging on Supermans cape. I've always told him God has a sense of humor; his will be worse than mine!
