Me: Long day. Good day, but a long day.
The Man: It was a good day.
Me: I didn’t even have to use my A-K.
The Man: [blank look]
Me: It’s from an Ice Cube song. He talks about how he just had a normal day, saw some people, had some food, didn’t have any trouble. At the end, he says “I didn’t even have to use my AK. I gotta say, it was a good day.”
The Man: You don’t even have an AK.
Me: That’s what you think. Next time you make me mad it will be “Rat tat tat tat late at night with my gat”…that’s from a Dr. Dre song.
The Man: Awesome.
Me: It’s gangsta rap to go to sleep by!
“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Not dead, but this morning started on his second, eternal life. We’ll miss you until we see you again, Grandpa.
From our IM chat today…
Mackers: I’m really trying to do a lot with these phots.
Mackers: Phot Bots!
Me: Now with laser action!
Me: It sounds like…some kind of building set.
Mackers: It does! Phots! It interconnects! It snaps together! And if you order now…
Me: You will also receive ZERM!
Mackers: That sounds wrong.
Me: Sounds like a cheap-ass scooter to me.
Me: We stuck a skate to a 2×4! It’s ZERM!
We were in Bronner’s, looking at Nativity sets. I found a set of figures that I wanted, that were reasonably priced, but all of the stables seemed to be more expensive than I thought they should be. I was hemming and hawing, trying to decide if I wanted to spend the money.
The Man: You know, if you take a picture of one of these, we could probably build it.
The Man: Yeah, it doesn’t look too hard. A piece of particle board for the base, another piece for the backdrop…
Me: You’d have to draw it out, you know.
The Man: That’s what the picture’s for!
Me: You’d still have to draw it on the wood before you cut it out!
The Man: (thoughtfully) Dad could probably do it for you easily…maybe you’d even get it faster than I got my thing, which hasn’t shown up yet.
Me: What’s your Dad supposed to be building for you?
The Man: A house for my Batman.
We decided just to buy one.
