The Return

I've returned from our family vacation to Disney and other parts of Florida. I'll bring you up to date on the highlights of said trip at a later date, as I've returned to a mountain of work that I need to get through. I'm thinking fire might be the most effective way to catch up. This afternoon I've got a hearing to amp up for, then leap right back into the whirlwind that is Little League. I know where the field is where we're supposed to go, but we have to take some bizarre way to get there, because "the bridge is out". What the hell? The field's at an elementary school? What bridge?

Should be interesting.

Highlights of the Florida trip:

My son punches the neighbor kid in the face and doesn't get in trouble.
What it sounds like when a river otter eats.
Disney sucks.
Manatees prove anti-climactic.
And I'm sure I'll think of some other stuff that happened too.

You had to pay for and actually take a trip to Disney to discover that it sucks?!?! Dude! I coulda told you that for free.

Glad you're back! Good luck catching up at work. Failing that however, I hear the bridge is out so maybe you can find work as a bridge-builder or something.

Manatees are a ball of excitement wrapped up in a hugely entertaining package.

Or not.

OH, the hugh manatee, he floats around too much. But what about Mickey and Minnie and poor Pluto? Are they not nice to the kids?

Maybe it's a test, where a parent is only deemed ready for the "Bigs" if he can find a way.

Okay, now let's address those highlights:

My son punches the neighbor kid in the face and doesn't get in trouble.

That is because Pug Puerileuwaite, ESQ., was not on the scene to represent the plaintiff. Until now, that is. We are asking for 60% of all Disneyworld tschotkes and a summertime supply of Capri Suns and Crackers & Cheese snacks as compensation.

What it sounds like when a river otter eats.

Did you tape the audio? I have a Paris Hilton video I would like to match it up to.

***

Disney sucks.

You wouldn't feel that way, had you seen "Disney on Ice". It's 3-solid hours of staring at Walt in his cryogenic chamber to Baroque music. Good times.

***

Manatees prove anti-climactic.

What? Did you NOT rent Jet Skis before hitting their exhibit? It's all in one's approach that makes or breaks an experience. Sheesh.

Let me guess: you would probably visit Yellowstone WITHOUT cases of beer and a snowmobile. Am I right?

I sentence you to repeated viewings of "They Call Me Earl" until you learn.

Welcome back, buddy.

Welcome back, you were missed. The comments today were hilarious!

So sorry, my funny seems to be broken today. Or maybe ir's still sleeping it off after that wild, drunken party last night. Who knows.

Glad you're back!!

Sounds like you need to go back to work to get a vacation. But isn't that how most family vacations go?

I've been to Disney once.

I'll never go back.

E, no, I knew Disney sucked, but higher powers than me, (i.e. my wife), dictated that this trip was going to happen.

Earl, they look like ill-defined black blobs to me.

Joe, we only saw Mickey and Minnie from a distance, and Pluto only from outside of a restaurant where he was pestering the diners.

Pug, actually "Mr. Esq.", if that is your real name, the other kid was asking for it, literally, and therefore implicitly waived his right to future litigation. More on that later.

PT, I'd like to hear more about the drunken party.

Q, well, they sort of were given the frequency of my posts lately.

Pud, exactly how most of them go. I get much more sleep here at work.

BP, I've been twice now, but I share your future goals.

Reminds me of my ex's kids. The boy used to push & nag the girl & then they'd both get in trouble from their mom. One day I pulled the girl aside (who was a year older & way stronger) and told her since she was going to get in trouble from her mom anyway, she may as well get a shot in. Same punishment. She smiled like I had given her the key to the secret fun kingdom. She never started shit, but the next time he kept nagging her & then slightly shoving her, she laid him out & he went running to mom crying & the girl just smiled a really evil smile to me on the sly. She didn't even rat me out. She just took her punishment with a sense of accomplishment. That happened a few more times & then he stopped pushing, touching or nagging her.
