In which he spelled E*P*I*C


The other day Daniel and I were chilling on the couch just chatting about upcoming stuff.  One of the things Daniel had to do was to write a speech because he was running for Vice President of the senior class at school.


As we were discussing his MANY qualifications I told him that perhaps he should put some testimonials in.  He asked what they would be and we had the following conversation:


Me:                  Why don’t you add a testimonials section to your speech?

Daniel:            Like what?

Me:                  You could include Colden’s testimonial.


(NOTE TO READER: Colden is the 3-year-old son of my niece Cammie.  He lives in Vermont, is an avid fan of Thomas the Tank Engine and adored Daniel)


Daniel:            that would be hilarious.  What did he say?

Me:                  He told his mother “I really like Daniel.  I’m going to be friends with him my WHOLE life”

Daniel:            that is a great testimonial and will attest to my character

Me:                  … of course, he also told his mother that he “loved Keely and was going to marry her so …”

Daniel:            (musing) It’s probably because we had such a great game of catch.

Me:                  That’s right.  He was throwing the ball to me and managed to hit you right in the face.  That was hilarious.

Daniel:            Yeah, and then I watched “accidents will happen” about a million times with him on your iPad.

Me:                  … there’s nothing better than watching wooden trains crash repeatedly for 5 minutes to annoyingly grating music

Daniel:            you couldn’t take it anymore so you left …

Me:                  … and now somehow, it’s saved in MY FAVORITES on YouTube on my iPad.

Daniel:            At least you introduced him to Pooh!


(NOTE TO READER:  We are HUGE Pooh fans and they had NEVER SEEN POOH!)


Me:                  It’s a travesty raising children without Pooh in their lives

Daniel:            I know! I still have 3 stuffed Pooh’s upstairs.  Two regular Pooh’s and one naked pooh.


(NOTE TO READER:  Naked Pooh has lost his red shirt.)


Me:                  Thank GOD we found that DVD and sent it to Vermont.  Now those children can grow up with the 100-acre wood.

Daniel:            Yeah, of course when you told Colden that EVERY car in the world had a face on it too but that it was just hidden behind the grill you might have messed up his world.

Me:                  That was hilarious

Daniel:            Well, now he’s going to spend his life peaking at the front of cars looking for the hidden faces.

Me:                  hmmmm

Daniel:            Plus, I can’t believe you said to him “wait a minute, you’re 3 years old and you can’t spell EPIC?”

Me:                  … it’s something EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW

Daniel:            you’ve ruined the poor kid

Me:                  nah…your grandmother called the other day and said that Colden had been working on it and he can’t wait for the next time we visit because now he can spell EPIC

Daniel:            and he knows the word LOADING because of your iPad

Me:                  I’m like a goddamn teacher

Daniel:            yeah mom, you’re amazing

Me:                  ummm Daniel? Was that sarcasm?


So there you are.  Lynn MacDonald, helping the world out …. one EPIC visit at a time.


And by the way, Daniel won and he’s the VP of the senior class.

      I know right? Pooh rocks but i keep running into people with little kids who don’t introduce Pooh to their kids. It makes me so, so sad.
