The black sheep complains by saying, "baaaaaaah"


I am going to try to make this as non-complainy (I know it's not a word, but work with me here) as possible, but if you would like to imagine me saying this with a clogged nose in between uncontrollable sobs, that's your prerogative, and who am I to take that away from you?
It kind of sucks to be the black sheep sometimes. When I am with my family in small groups it works out fine because we can always revert to something that we share in common like church or school, or work, but when there are more people, there is less common ground for group conversations, so without fail, the conversation goes to sports, because that's what everyone likes and of which everyone has a pretty deep knowledge. We watch game after game of which I have no interest and it wains as the hours go on. I try to throw out some line that I may have heard at work or read by mistake in the newspaper, or I will ask some question for which the answer doesn't interest me at all, but I ask to try to be a part of it all.
I did that same thing before I was married with fathers of my dates. They would be watching a game when I went to go pick them up and I would try to remember something that one of my brothers had said about a team and then regurgitate is back, hoping that I wouldn't sound like a total retard.
There is more to it, but at the risk of being a cry baby I will leave it at that.

I will stop parading around my child now, but this cracked me up.

Babe-Raham Pictures

Here are some pictures of the child. It ranges from normal pictures of him looking insane to what appears to be Halloween, but is really just our Thursday night ritual of me dressing up in an Abraham Lincoln mask to give him someone to look up to (because heaven knows it shouldn't be me). The last picture is in Disneyland and when he turns 4 and tells us he wants to go, that picture will be the first thing we show him, saying, "You already went to Disneyland....don't you remember?"
The baby in the second picture is his cousin Sam. If the photo serves us right, Abe will be left-handed and Sam will be right-handed.

What are you trying to say?

I came to my blog today because I hadn't written in a while and I decided that I would write a quick post about the house. I will be posting new pictures of the child soon because that's what will fill the spaces in between ideas for posts. I thought I was going to have to just whip something up; that was until I saw that another comment had been posted on my previous post. The comment was from anonymous and reads as follows (all in hyperlinks)

"viagra in the water female use of viagra effects of viagra buy cheap viagra soft viagra results viagra pills viagra from india lowest price viagra free sample pack of viagra fda on viagra viagra pills cialis vs viagra viagra discount viagra free samples."

Apparently some advertiser thinks way more people read this blog than actually do, or maybe my wife is trying to give me a subtle hint.
Whoever Anonymous is, you have won the contest for the best comment ever. So I would stand up to shake your hand, but ...... you know.
