Ciera's Birthday. Part Dos.

Expanding on last nights post about Ciera's birthday, my friend Tom Miles, who I've never met due to the fact he lives in England (I hope to rectify this sometime in the near future, since he has a daughter and I'd like to sit down for a few hours and commiserate on raising daughters) gave me this great bit of advice today.

"Two things, she's not a teenager yet. There is no two-teen.

And, I don't think there's any way to explain the relationship between a father and his firstborn only daughter. That sudden throbbing bellowing im...perative in your head which says "PROTECT PROTECT PROTECT!!!"

As for prospective suitors, I think international law says that you're allowed to kill the first one that breaks her heart and put his head on a spike in your front garden. To deter the others. Sure I read that somewhere.

I'm filing this away for future use.

Many thanks, Miles.

The ones bright enough to find Ciera's Dad's blog will be scared off, the dumb ones won't know what's hit them.

Miles is good people, even if we were both severely drunk when we last met.

I can only pray you are right, Scouser.

And that is a meeting that needed to be recorded. Or at the very least had someone take the minutes.

And Crazy Cousin Junior has made that drive on no sleep before. Don't think he wouldn't do it with thoughts of malice and missing limbs in dancing in his head.

You've been warned boys. The three amigos defend this one.

Like I said. Pals. Although Ciera is starting to worry about Uncle Josh and Uncle Jr's mental state.
