Angie's a sucker for goofy looking men

Eisi stopped by for a surprise visit in the evening and let me just say that he's not one to disappoint. Despite what it looks like, Eisi had not smeared cucumber juice on his face. Not a bad idea, actually. There was a whole nother reason why Angie's lips were superglued to Eisi's cheek, but more on his hidden agenda later.

After school, the boys got in trouble with the law. Peter was locked up and before anyone could realize what had happened, someone had thrown away the key.

Well, sorry, Peter - that sucks. I tried to look on the bright side of not spending as much money on groceries, but he's always been a finicky eater, so I don't think that being locked up would really save us that much on the eatin' bills. I hope you won't be asking for bail money, son.

As I entertained images of Peter sipping water and demanding that his captors cut the crust off of his bread, David was whispering something that must have been hilarious into Tommy's ear.

'Pssst...Tommy...come closer...'

'Ya, Dadid...ya?'

'I have the key...I threw it away...'

I'm pretty sure that Tommy had no idea why David was cracking up like a nutcase on the sunny side of the loony bin, but it didn't matter at all. David has recently become Tommy's NUMBER ONE IDOL. If David laughs, Tommy thinks it's hysterical. If David throws sand on some innocent kid's head at the playground, Tommy gets the general idea and follows up by whacking the poor girl with a plastic shovel. I only wish that this example was made up.

At one point, Tommy strayed away from Big Brother to hang out with Lisi, another one of his idols. She has red hair and David's favorite color is red, so I'm not completely ruling out that there might be some connection.

Tommy was having an awesome time in the back saddle until something blocked out the sun.

It didn't resemble a bird and it certainly wasn't a plane, but it did look more powerful than a locomotive. Hey, wait a minute, I know - it's The Godfather.

Okay, I have to admit that my father forced us to watch The Godfather (all three) and Superman (all four, plus Supergirl) over and over and over and over and over again until I sometimes get them mixed up.

After parting ways with Godfather III (Tom's), we had our unexpected visit from the Godfather I (Peter's). Eisi called when he was about an hour out, which gave Angie approximately 55 minutes to freak out and frantically clean the place, and still allow 5 minutes to cool down so she didn't look like she was sweating her ass off. I chuckled as she freaked out, except the times when she got in front of me watching Spain spank Chile in the World Cup. Eisi showed up five minutes before the game ended.

'Hi Steve.'

'Uh-huh. You, too.'

'How's it going?'

'Yeah, wow, man. That sounds interesting.'

'Okay, I guess I'll wait until the game's over to tell you that I'm gonna be a daddy.'

'Mm hmm, sure... the beers are in the fridge...'

It wasn't until someone slapped my head that I realized that Angie was crying. Eisi was grinning like the village papa, so I finally pieced together what I had missed in the non-existent instant replay. It also helped that Angie was already on the phone congratulating Martha and offering baby names, which I thought was pointless; it's so obviously going to be Steve or Stephanie.

I gave Eisi equal points for stupidity and bravery. He has been exposed to our animals long enough to know the effects it can have on their owners, yet he voluntarily chose to self-paternalize. I really didn't know whether to punch him or give him a hug and suck on his face. Lucky for me, Angie had ruled out one of the choices.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When Eisi talk with me on the phone.
David: When I played with Tommy goo-goo goo-goo, 'cause he so funny and I laugh.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I go to bed and Eisi is not here yet.
David: When I not more can play with Peter honk-honk ka-chonk.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play soccer with Eisi.
David: I want to play Mommy with Mommy.

  1. Any chance Eisi is your brother-in-law? There is an uncanny resemblance between him and Mrs. Steve.

    Congrats - you're gonna be an aunt or an uncle (depending on the sex of the baby, of course)
