Big Daddy... What is it that makes him so big?
His big heart, his big belly, or his big money?
Brick Pollet in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"
Today, Big Daddy turns 49 years old---at least in Body age that is...
The way he acts--well--that is questionable---
some days he's the five year old who gets on my nerves and other days...he might be sixteen....when he flirts and is needy...
depends on the topic and on how much attention
he might need for any given moment.
I tried to surprise him--he always does better than I do--
the only thing that was the surprise and worked out
was the fact that I took the day off to spend some time with him.
He says, "he wants to start hiking with me." and "he has started walking with me in the morning, though sometimes he needs to clarify that
it is a leisurely walk--not an exercise walk---
He's a funny one...of course it is not uncommon for him to smoke one of his Big Daddy cigar-like cigarettes while we are exercising.
His birthday started on Saturday morning....
we "got" to go to one of those all you can eat and stuff your face
We allow him to go--once a year---for some reason Big daddy is happiest when he gets a ton of food for cheap----
He decided to go between breakfast and lunch so he got two for the price of one
and came home so stuffed to lay in bed and watch basketball.
I hate breakfast buffets---so does off color daughter---
off color son--well he tolerates them--but because he eats so quickly--he ends up sitting there texting and putting his head on the table with his bad manners.
Sunday brought Big Daddy another day of basketball coupled with his once a year treat to
Long John Silvers Seafood take-out.
Big Daddy loves his greasy fried food smothered in tarter sauce---it's good for his
double stented heart.
Today, I surprised him by getting up and getting ready for work--and then telling him that I was taking the day off and giving him the option of
two hiking places plus a picnic
a movie and nap.
he chose the movie and a nap--and added in his list of errands that I get to do with him.
He is currently making our list of "stuff" we have to do.
We are taking back the khaki shorts---I forgot he likes pleats---
we are taking back the peach v-neck--that I thought was sexy hot...he's not into v-necks.
he is keeping the "sexy hot" compression underwear that he says looks like bikers shorts--he said he would wear them to the gym and pose for some photo taking opportunities....
he wants to take in our lawnmower---seems we have to buy a new one every year----
seems they don't like sitting out in the elements all year....
we get to stop at Lowe's,
he is currently packing a baggie of long john silvers fish to eat at the movie----I'm sure it will not smell.
I fixed him a homemade carrot cake last night---I'm such the nice wife---off color daughter decorated--and off color son says it smells like Cinnamon rolls....
I'm one lucky woman...
Big Daddy is a "hoot" to live with...
He makes life exciting and adventurous and undull most of the time.....
oh year...he is keeping his hiking water pack and his trail shoes that off color son says are very ugly....perhaps he might hike with me after all!!!
no matter how much I make fun of you
you are my best friend,
my soul mate,
my heart and my one true love.....
and how lucky you are to
a sexy hot wife
and two off color kids who love you...
your off color clan!!!!
as for the rest of the morning...
I threatened to quit writing my blog as they were making fun of me this morning...
Off color daughter says it is not funny at all--since it hasn't included stories about her for a while...
she also said, "you say the same thing every day----how many times are you gonna say..."spring has come..." "from out of the burrows"........that's boring and not funny
I know you lied...."you did not dance by the side of the road"....big daddy chuckled....
I said, "it was a metaphor....I was dancing in my heart..."
she rolled her eyes and laughed...
:no don't stop blogging....just put more cool stories in about me....cause I'm funny."
made a snide comment about, "yeah...her readers think she danced...you saw the comment..."
I didn't dance outside in the church parking lot,
but my heart soared
so off color daughter and big daddy...
"double fingers to you!"
Happy Birthday Big Daddy.........
I do love you
big stomach (don't get all sensitive and all--you say you've got the stomach tumor)
you rock and i love you!
your sexy hot mama
