The Devil You Know Is Better Than The One You Don't

We took Rakes to meet his Kindergarten teacher tonight.

She thought he was cute and called him sweetie.

The poor woman has no idea what she's in for. We decided to let her find out on her own; she's pushing 60 and I didn't want to send her to an early grave.

Thankfully for her, she should be retired by the time Trot arrives; whoever is the lucky winner that gets him is going to need hazard pay.

Sox lose to the Tigers and Justin Verlander today, which isn't exactly a cause for embarrassment. Dude was throwing 100 mph on his 123rd pitch, which is down right sick.

The boys take 3 out of 4, which is nothing to hang your head about and venture down to Texas for the weekend with a 3 game set with the Rangers on the radar.

Other than my good friend Tex, nothing good has come out of Texas since Lone Star Beer was first brewed.

I like our chances.

Tex might note that JPB is from...

I thought Rakes was old enough for regular school. Must be thinking of UK/NZ where kids start in the year they turn five.

If his kindy teacher's made it to 60, she's seen and sorted dozens of Rakes in her time. She'll be fine.

You aren't excited or anything, right Tex? ;) Hope you ave a great weekend watching the fellas. And ffel free to give them a kick in the pants if necessary. John, she should be fine. We hope. :)

I was at the game yesterday, and when the board said 100MPH on that 123rd pitch, we were SURE the gun needed to be recalibrated.

Ted D said...

I didn't get to see the game due to work consuming my life, but it sounded like he was flat out filthy, Penny.

I'm with John; Rakes' teacher will be fine. He's not the first active little boy to come along, and besides; he's calmed down quite a few levels in the past year.

Trot, however, is an entirely different matter. :)

Stacy, you didn't go fishing with us the other week. ;)
