An All Infidel Male Edition
My 8 year old son, Buster, went on an excursion to the local Arboretum with his Boy Scout Troop yesterday. The rest of us tagged along too. While walking on one of the many lush trails through the center we saw a huge green plant tagged with a sign that identified it as a 'Dancing Lady'. Buster pointed it out first, exclaiming, "Look Mom, that plants called a Dancing Lady"! To which I replied, "Of course it is son. That plant is easily identifiable by all the dollar bills around it".
The Arboretum volunteers refurbishing the gardens and planting Summer foliage are none other than the fine inmates from the Harris County Jail. Buster saw them and then read the lettering on the back of their orange jumpsuits before turning wide eyed to his Boy Scout companion and commenting, "That's the reason why we use the Buddy System".
For some unexplained reason Raven Symone was a featured entertainer at this year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Buster saw her on a rodeo ad and got all excited when telling us about it. Buster said, "It's that girl from that show. You know, "FATSO RAVEN". That cracked us all up.
My toddler son, Boo Boo, likes to curl up in my lap but only if I've just shaved my legs. Otherwise he tells me, "EWWW Mommy, you have spider legs".
Finally, my Mom has always liked Papi even when we were just friends mainly due to an incident that transpired in front of her where Papi and I had a discussion about names. I asked him what kind of name Papi is and he told me that it was in the Bible. Stunned, but Biblically ignorant, I believed him and asked, "Really??!!!?? Where in the Bible"? Papi laughed and told me, "I don't know about your Bible but mine has Papi printed right on the first page........where I wrote it".
