he is a "stay-in" kinda movie guy, doesn't do well at the show, thinks it's too uncomfortable - whateva
Baseball (fka, Kyle) starts talking baseball with Dock because it was mentioned that I have one of Baseball's
I had to let Dew know that he couldn't go in & pet them. If he did, they'd gnaw a hole in his ankle or worse.
All is decided - I go to finish the paperwork for the Cub Scout day camp (Camp To-po-ne-be, I kid you not) that Dew will be attending Tues-Fri, and return home. Time to go!
Heading towards our destination, - there's a reason for telling this tale, and I hope you find it as amusing as I did - we catch a light getting ready to turn left. Green light & we wait.
Baseball: What are we doing?
Dock: Waiting for traffic.
Me: Yeah, gotta wait for the cars to pass.
Baseball: But why is it taking so long?
Me: Cause your dad's driving.
Dock (to me): You better watch it or I'll have to press the passenger eject button.
I had a good laugh. In the meantime, Dew mentions we're not going the right way.
Dock: We're not? Lead the way, buddy!
Dew: You go that way.
Dock: Which way?
Dew: That way! (from the back of the van where no one can see him, he must be pointing in some direction.)
Dock: Okay, that's the way we're headed!
As time goes on, I will reveal more of Dock man's sensitive nature & comfortable humor.
The time had was ultimately fun! The kids were glad we went to Zao rather than the movies. Miss Independent (fka Maia - I'll explain that another time) was happiest turning in our tickets. She caught the motherlode there. After that, we went out to dinner, which is rare because Dock works so much.
I just took Dew to the drop site..yes, he's gone for the day & I am sad. As much as he makes me crazy, I sure do miss when he's not here. He's going to have a blast today! They do things at this day camp that I know we aren't the type of family to do with him. Shoot bows & arrows, fish (yeah, we don't), shoot BB guns *shock*, etc. It's highly supervised. We aren't real outdoorsy, but I am proud to say he won't miss out on outdoorsy type activities!
