Breaking News

Today, son, mere hours into your tenure of being four, you broke one of your mother’s favorite mugs.  It was accident, we all know that, and we also know that mug shouldn’t have been left where it had been, so the full blame is in no way completely on you.  Sometimes you just have to be philosophical about these things.

After all, to paraphrase Bill Watterson, in the grand scheme of things, it won’t be that long before you’ll have to potential to wreak the car . . .

Happy Birthday, son.

    Thank you! And may I just say that in regards to your cobra situation, a flamethrower might not be your best reserve option.

    I highly recommend thermite grenades. 😉

    Have just ordered them from the internet – don’t tell the wife, she’ll confiscate them (like the phosphorus ones I never got to use).

    Amazon does genuinely sell everything. Who knew?

    My lips are sealed. We’re all in this together after all.

    And the best part about Amazon is that if you add a little napalm to your order, they’ll probably give you free shipping.

    Oh look at that you’re right – and it comes gift wrapped! Now that seals the deal.

  6. Robert Alan Says:

    Customer service is everything these days.
