But Grown-up rhymes with Throwin' up!!
I love my life. I have a good life. I have a fantastic family, I like the work that I do, I have a dashboard hula dancer for hell's sake...what more could a guy want!! Some of you (all of you) might think I act a bit childish at times (all the time), but lets consider the alternative. I could act GROWN UP!
This idea popped into my head the other day as my family and I were wandering aimlessly through the aisles of a popular big box store. In one spot in the store, they had a Playstation 3 hooked up to a ginormous TV, with the 'Rockband' game, and all of its assorted paraphernalia (drums, guitar, microphone, etc.) tempting the masses that sauntered by. *I instantly started drooling! Then I watched as kids lined up, waiting to play, and their parents slowly creeping out of the way. This seemed like a non-verbal disclaimer that they were in no way to be associated with a silly video game, but instead they were only supervising. Needless to say, Gabe and I were all over the chance to play. I realize that I should probably be embarrassed, as I was the only one in the long line of onlookers that was over 4 feet tall. oops! I guess I failed to see the height marker, you know the ones..."you must be under 48" to enjoy life at all, anyone over 48" is invited to a checkbook balancing seminar, after which we will discuss, in depth, the topic of illegal killing of Rhino's in Africa and the effects it has on third-world countries.....and thank you for visiting the most magical place on earth!"
*lets take a break, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit!
