About the kid.

Me: Hey, what're you doing in there? It's time for lunch.
Pooey (fiddling with some paper in the other room): Just a minute. I'm shooting animals with nails.
Me: Okay. Take your time.
Pooey (handing me a crumpled section of a Target ad): Okay. I'm done now. Will you hold my nail gun?

...

(Pooey, pulling his arm back, as if to strike his mom with a dirty dust pan)
Mom: Don't even think about hitting me with that.
Pooey (pausing, scowling): I AM thinking about it.
(Nods his head, looks satisfied. Yes. He thought about it. That will certainly teach her.)

...

(Walking home from dropping Madeleine off at school, Mom and Pooey are hit by the unmistakable scent of garlicky chicken frying at El Diablo down the block.)
Pooey: Ew Mommy! Something mells disgusting and delicious!

I admire his brave pairing of a faux grass skirt with a fringed leather jacket. Very original.

What's next real nail guns and neuticals? He'll all th eother kids by the balls.

Love, Love, Love the picture. Pampers (I think he is wearing a diaper) and a hula skirt. I forgot to see if he had on cowboy boots.. That would really top it off. At that age I wore cowboy boots with everything ot no shoes at all.

The word verifications are getting harder to read. I thought it was my eyes..
