what is it?  it’s a scalp massager.  they sell them over at the night bazaar.  every time we are down there they try to give us a personal demonstration of how this baby works hoping that we won’t be able to live without it.  and i’ve always been too smart to be tricked into this obvious trap.  but for our 18th anniversary this is one of the gifts michael gave me – turns out he’s brilliant and this thing is pretty darn close to heaven.

true story #1 – 15 year old boy asks c13 to prom. (when your graduating class includes only 25 or so folks, the entire high school gets to go to prom) c13 says no. 15 year old boy is in the play godspell. after watching the play, michael walks up on the stage to shake the hand of 15 year old boy and to tell him, “job well done.” he then pulls 15 year old boy into the manly handshake-hug (you’ve seen it done) and whispers in his ear, “stay away from my daughter.”

true story #2 – c16 has a presentation to give in his model united nations class – his topic is the fifth united nation millennium development goal – maternal health. he asks michael to be a “guest speaker”. michael breaks the ice with this gem, “hi, i’m c16’s dad. obviously i’m where he gets his good looks from. and girls, if you’re interested in him, 25 years from now, it’s possible he’ll look a lot like this.” and gestures to himself.

i think he might be losing his cool dad rep.
