Another Kind of Weekend
The boys in our family returned from their testosterone-fueled weekend in Maine last night. Five year old Ethan walked in the door, pumped both fists in the air, and announced, "I used the chainsaw and shot Uncle Andrew's BB gun!" I can't say I'm sorry I missed that. After many stories about working and painting, eating chili and wrestling, my older son Aaron reported that it had been a good idea to pack You Gotta Be Kidding!, his treasured book of "Would you rather..." questions (previously mentioned in my June 5 and 6, 2008 posts). He now knows if his uncles and cousins would rather eat a hair sandwich or an earwax omelet. He knows who would prefer 20 pounds of seagull poop on their head to a camel spitting all over them if forced to choose. Good manly fun!
