Super Bowl musings

The commercial for Big Y supermarket was just on featuring the Patriots’ Vince Wilfork…

me: Oooh rough times working for Big Y now…

Jack: He doesn’t work for Big Y, he’s just there eating their pizza…

(I still think Jack doesn’t get commercials yet)

me: He’s in a Big Y commercial eating their pizza which means Big Y hired him to be in the commercial which means he’s working for Big Y now.

Jack: Ooooh tough times. (He shakes his head)





7-year-olds say some sh*t too!

Yeah they do.

Jack turned 7 at 4:36 p.m. And, because he’s such a stickler for rules he could not enjoy being 7 until that very time. He did wake up and say “I can’t believe I’m actually 7!” But then he said “Ohhh, not really until after school…sighhh…” I tried to cheer him up with birthday waffles and a candle…and cupcakes for school, but he was a little ho-hum about it. Still moody and a bit irritable in general. I think he’ll snap out of it soon.

Jack: Since I’m 7 can I watch some things with more violence in them?

me: Huh? Uh, no…

Jack: How about Episode 3 (Star Wars)…

me: Just a little.

Jack: I’ll fast forward through the violent stuff like the shooting and dying.

me: Jack, just last year I wouldn’t let you watch commercials for pete’s sake. Sighh…

Jack: Well you were weird last year, remember??

me: Touché…

Happy Birthday Jack! I love you!
