Pint-sized superhero right here.

You gotta be careful. Those 6 year olds are wily. They'll eat you at the first chance they get.

It's eat or be eaten with those things.

Twelve years old and up at 3 am. With your brother.

I have a nomination for parent of the year.

Not really. If there was a natural disaster and I had to decide on taking one of my brothers, his wife and two kids or my two cats I would take my cats and use the two remaining seats for some of my more important books.

Well that's just sad. Getting cat hair out of upholstery is a biatch.

It's hard to find a dusty thread for me anymore as jaded as I am, but as the parent of a sweet little boy this story hit me in the right place. Kids are the best.

What? Nobody wants to talk about the plastic grapes? My grandparents had them too, and I coveted them.

I loved those effing grapes. Use to put the little hole on the tip of my tongue and squeeze the air out. They would stick on forever!

Hero tag on vacation?
 
2012-06-30 02:58:32 AM
In before all the thread-shiatters saying what an idiot Grandpa is for riding that far out without a phone or water?

Well he IS pretty stupid. Good thing his descendent seems to have more sense and a lot of balls. Kid needs a toy shopping spree now, on Poppy's dime.

Well, cell phones don't work everywhere, and not everyone has a sat phone. That said, he should have taken some supplies. Also, whether prepared or not, when you go out to do dangerous stuff, someone responsible needs to know you're going so you can be looked for with the regular dogs instead of the corpse dogs.

That's what I was thinking. Kid deserves a hero tag!

Trust me, your cats feel the same way. Except that their reason is because you will be easier to kill and eat if the disaster goes into a third day.

Holy crap. I did that too. I haven't thought about that for more than 40 years! Being a little kid in the 70s sucked, until Pong came around.

you cant really fark a cat though..I mean you can..but pretty much just the once and then its a corpse. So I think the choice out of a brother, a brothers wife or a brothers kids becomes real obvious then, take the one that will be funnest to fark

You can if you have a really little, and barbed, dick like I do. Snowball loves it!

A later interview asked the question, Small will you go out again? Small stated that he had no choice since he has fuel running in his veins now.

No one had alerted me to the amount of dust in here!

My grandfather admittedly is living longer + better thanks to so much exposure to his 1 + only great granddaughter

Some families are failures. Sorry to hear that is the case with you. It is possibly not your fault.
 
2012-06-30 08:28:10 AM
So... glad to hear he stood by his grandfather.

The kid didn't completely fail, so I guess he is a hero in that sense. Didn't exactly blow my mind... nice to hear they love eachother though.


Must have been scary for the little tyke.

Thanks subby.

That headline just made me laugh this long, deep, belly laugh that I didn't even realize I was capable of.

Actually, it does. I clean on a regular basis and mop my floors once a week. I also have an automatic litter box that limits the smells, too. Combine that with odor fighting litter and there is virtually no smell from the litter box.

My cats have permission to eat my body if I die and am unable to feed them.

Ha, when my grandmother died, all I wanted was that bowl of plastic fruit. Even better, my Mom and sister knew that before I even asked and had put my claim on them.

Most of it still looks eerily delicious.

Thanks, subby!

I hated those plastic grapes. I'd be hungry for some grapes and find they were fake and then I'd be given crap like cookies strawberry shortcake which I didn't really appreciate as a kid but love now.
