Thanks so much!
Ever spent so much time searching for a show to watch that before you know it, it’s time to go to bed? You just blew two hours searching! Happens to me every weekend. I have one of those Android box thingys plus Netflix, so it’s not like my choices are slim, just maybe my choices are too many.
How come the kids never have this problem? I take my kids to their grandparents and they grab the remote as soon as they walk in and voila! they are watching a show, not scrolling through the menu. They always seem to find their show too! And it doesn’t matter if it’s the first time they have been to the house or what cable carrier they are using, they would find a show in seconds! To make matters worse, all three would mutually agree on it.
Oh, to be a kid again…
I realized I had a problem while playing NHL 15 on the Xbox with my 7 year-old. He was kicking my butt and being the competitive person I am, I was getting angrier as the goals piled up. Seeing my changing demeanor, the kid looked at me and said, “Dad, don’t forget it’s only a game. It’s not like you are playing in the NHL.”
It was as though he tossed ice-cold water in my face. I smartened up immediately and took my beatdown like a man.
Just check out this photo of Will and Jada’s kids. Willow 14 and Jaden 16. Willow is wearing an age-appropriate t-shirt with the words, “Ain’t No Wifey”. Don’t be hating, she really ain’t! Kids just don’t get any cuter and smarter looking than these two. Let’s hear a collective big ‘awwwww…’ Oh by the way, they are home-schooled. They must have a good teacher.
I just had an observation. How come it’s ‘trick OR treat’ but no one ever uses the option of trick? I would like to maybe not hand out any candies next year, when kids come to my house and go ‘Trick or treat!!’ I would say, “Hmm…Trick. Now if you could please pick a card, any card…”
I admit, I am out of touch with reality. I still believe in the things I was taught were right and wrong, acceptable and unacceptable. I still uphold the practice of treating women like the weaker sex, opening doors for them and handling them like precious jewels. I don’t accept that a sulky, rude and disrespectful teen is just being a teen. I still cling to the old belief that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. Not that I am actively against such, just that I am too old school to accept this drastic change. In fact, although I have friends who are gay, I fail to accept and embrace that lifestyle as normal. Sorry, I’m just too damn old school.
I am so entrenched in my old ways that I still administer a good ole fashioned spanking to my kids when they misbehave! Yes, heavens forbid! Don’t hate me if you are new age because I don’t hate you. I am just too damn old school to accept what’s ‘cool’. Cool is being gay, leaving your husband or wife for a same-sex partner, parading nude in public, flaunting your sexual preference, treating a dog better than you would treat a human being and allowing your teens to be teens. I am so not cool.
So you see, I have a big problem. It’s not you, it’s me. This blogger is just too old school. Sometimes you really cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
Yesterday while leaving a restaurant with my family, I happened to notice the family walking in the doors. Nothing wrong with that of course. It was a family restaurant. What I wasn’t expecting to see was the young girl’s ass cheeks peeking out from under her much-too-short shorts, kinda reminiscent of my neighbors’ 16 year old daughter and just about every other teen girl out there these days.
“Honey, is this new latest style among young girls, showing their asses?” I asked my wife. “Yep”, she replied. “It’s to get the boys’ attention.” We debated this latest fashion trend and its impact on the young ones and thanked God that we had all boys.
Now believe me, I love to see me some female ass cheeks. I just do not wish tò feel like a pedophile or a pervert while indulging in one of life’s pleasures. So I kinda have an issue with some under-aged ass cheeks parading in front of me. It’s disturbing. Picture this, I am driving minding my own business when suddenly I see a pair of cheeky ass cheeks playing peek-a-boo with me. As I drive past, drinking in the sight, I see the face of your 15 year old daughter. Eeew! Yes, think about that before you let her leave your house!
While working on my driveway about a week ago, I overheard an exchange between my tough-as-nails neighbor and his 16 year old daughter. She wanted to go out wearing clothing that her daddy did not approve of, but her dad would have none of it. He put up a good fight for about 2 minutes but eventually gave in and took his precious daughter to the mall. Who would risk losing their only sweetheart over something as petty as a bit of clothing? Who cares if some old pervert feasts his eyes on his young sweetheart? At least she will always be daddy’s girl.
