Tell Me Thursday

Great radio show. Fun to listen to and gives you a great laugh.

They liked my almost wordless Wednesday and wanted the story behind it. I had never heard of Tell Me Thursday but I am happy to play along.

It is Spirit Week at my kids school. Monday was pajama day, Tuesday Disco Day, and then Wednesday was Pink Day. This is not his first Rodeo...last year he wore a dress to school. And with those emerging hairy legs he had his first experience wearing tights. I think we even painted his nails last year.

This year he wanted some tight pink shorts...which we found at the Deseret Industries for a whopping $2. His entire outfit was purchased there Tuesday night for a total of 11$, including the shoes and girl panties...not available for show.

He said the circulation in his legs was cut off by 2nd period, and he can't understand why a girl would wear panties...he is a boxer boy.
He adorned himself with my beads and his sisters lip gloss, and won the award for the most excessive PINK...which earned him a spot in the YEARBOOK; I am sure at some point he will re-think PINK.



Today is classic day...now if he could just TALK his dad into letting him wear his Rolex...


The boy has way more confidence than I have raised him to have. He has fun with life and is a JOY to be around. My sister commented that she has seen him in WAY to much pink in his young life, and he ENJOYS wearing girl clothes a bit much. My aunt requested that we keep him away from the pink from now on, he looks a little too good in it! And my cousin thought that if anyone could pull it off, he could, he has it in the bag...I said it's somewhere in his purse!!!

I only have one daughter....so it is kind of nice to have him around...

Anywho...thanks for asking. Happy THursdAY everyone!

I like the story behind the picture. Fortunately for your son, pink isn't totally a girl color any more. And if he overachieves that way with all his projects in life he ought to be pretty successful!

yes..heatherlyn, pink is an awesome color for boys. My son worE a Tough guys wear Pink shirt most of elementary school, which has been passed along to both brothers...LOVE IT. And he also told me back then that it is racist to think that Pink is only for girls...I loved that comment. I am glad that with our kids we can change even what they think it means to be racist. Hopefully only good things come from this great generation. Thanks for the comments everyone. Love you all for being YOU. ♥

Great story and thanks for playing - hope you'll play along again soon!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
