T’was the night before the Pacman’s Pay-per View fight my wife and daughter had just spent two days re-purposing my granddaughter’s electric powered toy ATV. It has been sitting in the spare room for over ten years because as a little girl she didn’t really like it that much. But now that the Lil Dude is two years 6 months he has rediscovered it and claimed it as his own. A phone call to Heather Coleen and she agreed with Jaden, not even remembering she owned it.
They found this stick-on paper that changed the color from girly lavender to manly blue and silver. As if the kid really cared. Next his mother bought a safety helmet and elbow and knee proctors. Mind you this toy travels at breakneck speeds just under 2 MPH and sits 8 inches off the ground. But the Lil Dude doesn’t seem to mind so why should I?
Remember we were brought up un the time of that idiot Dr. Benjamin Spock who changed how America raised children 50 years ago? That fact that his son committed suicide speaks volumes to me as to how wrong, that fool was. As a kid I rode down a busy Avenue in Boston sitting on the handle bars of my brother’s bike, and my younger brother on the back as my oldest brother peddled in and out of heavy traffic and the cars were made of steel with no plastic bumpers on them. And not a one of us had a helmet on. How did we survive?
As per the fight, need I say who won? But the 35 plus people in my living room were happy with the results. Not one beer was left in my beer Ref., 5 bottles of Emparaflu Lite (With Ice Tea Mix) went missing, copious amounts of chicken, pork and pancit was consumed. I keep the vegetable crisper in my beer ref stock with stateside candy; the kids emptied it within the first hour and were running around buzzed to the max on a sugar rush but they were happy little dudes and dudettes.
I know this article is out of order but lord November has been busy, so much going on around the homestead and our purok (Neighborhood). Mayang has a Doctor’s appointment, the New, New Mitsubishi G-4 finally made it to 5,000 kilometers and must go to the Car World dealership to be poked and prodded as per the warrantee requirements. February to November it took 9 months to reach this milestone or kilometerstone whichever is the right way to say it. I change my oil by time not mileage
So I guess it will be a while before I get in for my ten thousand kilometer check up.
So that sums up November and part of December, I was pondering the adventures that lay in wait for me in 2015, or what other electric motor I own will need to be rebuilt next year. It’s a wait and see, as to what game that we all must play here next year, albeit most times they are fun.
Okay I have rambled on long enough with Hodge podge of an article; I think I’ll head to the man cave with a USB full of country music, a bottle of Tanduay Superior rum, and hold court with 9 of my 14 dogs, they’ll have to get their own drink as I’m not sharing, because this ain’t Face Book.
