Francis: what’s to eat! I put my order in days ago. Who’s running this joint anyway. Ethan: Hey now, you big jerk… Simon: Hey I was thinking we could eat sandwiches. Pastas. Oh wait wait…pasta sandwiches… Ethan: (gags) it’s ok (gags again) how about a spinach salad…with salman…maybe- Simon: what’s a s-s-a-lad?? Ethan: ….it’s spinach and greens…with oil and vinegar…salt and pepper…don’t use ranch it ruins it…like axe body spray… Simon: I don’t get it? France: Yeah me either, with all the oil and vinegar? Where do you put the lasagna? Ethan: Great day, Simon, a salad is all the stuff you eat outside. And Francis, we are not having lasagna… Francis: ( big eyes) Ethan: we’re compromising for spaghetti and garlic toast… Simon: Yeahh Toast!
Simon: Bad news dad. I’ve decided I’m not talking to you. Ethan: Oh really? Simon: Yah, your polls are dropping. It doesn’t look good. Ethan: Dang, and I was going to make sandwiches too… Simon: I mean, I still have to eat. But I’m still not talking to you. Until I get what I want. Ethan: What do you want ? Simon: Hold on…I have to ask Francis, I can’t remember. Francis: Enjoy your SADwiches….We’re voting you out of here. Ethan: That’s the last time I leave NPR on the radio for you guys…
Dad says we probably ran off the road last night because of the Dinosaurs!
It was OK though. He grabbed me and kept me from falling out the open window.
Dad showed me how the wheel bent when we hit that persons driveway…
My dad is the greatest. I knew he had everything under control. So when someone stopped to say hello, I went and told them “we’ve got this.” Just like dad always says… he says “it’s ok, I’ve got this. Everything is under control.” Real calm like that. It makes me feel better and it must have made them feel better too. Because then they left.
After that, dad asked me to sit in the car and let him know if I saw any mountain lions or bears. He kept asking for a Tea Bar. But I didn’t see any tea in the car so I just waited.
Today, dad says, we are going to go get a REAL jack and a Tea…T Bar and Flash Light.
