Something that might surprise you all is that my sweet, mild tempered Brock has a little issue with Authori-TAY. Specifically the 'punk-ass kids who try to tell me what to do' sort of authority. People like campus cops, nuns and lifeguards. I think this is shocking and horrible. (Cut to me basically giving a campus cop the finger for pulling me over because I wasn't wearing a seat belt as I drove ONE BLOCK back to my house after delivering some artwork to the Art Building. And no, he did not give me a ticket. He wrote me a warning and when he handed it to me I said, "No thanks, you can keep it".)
So Brock is relaxing in the hot tub with Thing 1, who is still wearing his arm floaties AND inner tube. This does not surprise me, as he also has been wearing them around the house for the past three days. A young lifeguard strolls over and instructs Brock to remove the inflatable devices as they are choking hazards when in contact with hot water. Brock tells him that they are no where near the child's neck and goes on with his hot tubbing. Later, a different lifeguard comes over and instructs Brock to remove the inflatable devices as they are taking up too much room in the hot tub. Brock tells lifeguard that there are only 2 adults in the hot tub and he thinks that there is plenty of room.
He says he was in the right and the lifeguards were power hungry fools. I say they were just doing their job as they were instructed to do, and he's a dream crusher. And yes, I'm aware that I am a hypocrite and I'm okay with that.
The inflatable devices remained on the child the entire trip and Thing 1 had some great father/son bonding time where he learned all about
On that note, I have two you tube videos that I would like to share today. They both made me laugh in an unexpected way. Make sure and watch the second all the way to the end because it IS the awesomesauce.
Happy Saturday. We will be staying home, where the snot is flowing freely from both of the Thing's noses. I guess we will have to hold off on that Europe trip for another week or two.
Peace, Love and funny dudes splashing around in the water,
