Every Day Is The Best. Day. Evar.

I don't quite know what to say to my brethren here on the Intertunnel. You're all so far down the rabbit hole of woe we need spelunkers to find the top of your head.

I'm Irish. All my songs are supposed to be sad, and my wars merry. But compared to you all, I'm Pollyanna. Listen to me: Every day above the lawn is the Best. Day. Evar. --if you'll let it be.

Ask any five-year-old. Or their father.

Boy did we ever need that! Your spare heir is adorable. I'm awaiting the entry into this world of my first two grandchildren and sometimes I wonder what kind of life they will have to deal with among all this gloom and doom.
But watching a child dance certainly puts another spin on things!
And wow I didn't know they had "Dancing with the Stars" in the 60's!

It's good to know that now I won't have to shop for any more cute until 2012.

Gerard,
I read your blog every day and it is one of the best on the net. I have to tell you that it made me feel very good just to see your comment next to my comment and that we were feeling the same thing at the same time. Kind of crazy, I know, to feel a connection to someone so far away. We live in such a new world of connections. When my husband shows me the google map showing people in China reading his blog, it's pretty surreal.
We are living in a wondrous time.

Half-empty glass people are pussies. Don't read the paper, don't watch the news. Pay attention to your own life. I'm having so much fun being 54 I can't wait to be 55.

Reaction of my five-year-old:

"[reading:] Ask any five-year-old. Or their father. [adding:] But not their moms."

Also: "Ask any of us guys. Or their fathers. Or mine."

Reaction of me:

Why does that singer sound like the child of Weird Al Yankovic and Big Bird?

You've just taught your five-year-old one of the key functions of being a father -- to embarrass their children about five years from now.

Great stuff. I forgot to have my earphones plugged in and accidentally broadcast that song to my office.

The other night my six-year-old showed me his ability to do 100 karate moves in a row. It took him about a minute and change. Life is good.

Trying to figure out if my friend Anwyn is actually asking us why SpongeBob Squarepants sings funny.

Janet said...

I think I like the credits as much as the dancing.

Anwyn said...

I've never actually heard him sing--didn't know it was him. Now that I know, no, I'm not asking why. :)

Thud said...

you have pointed out before and again with this post shown that it doesn't take much to make a great life...ta very much....by the way...the kids got some great moves.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

I didn't realize how desperately I needed that until now. Thank you so very much.

Hugs to Gar-gar.

SippicanCottage said...

I'm sorry, Ruth Anne, but Gar Gar is impervious to both praise and criticism. Iconoclast.

I'll hug him anyway.

Weird. I have always wondered where that dance video was from. We've had to do that same dance routine every day at work for 10 years now, 6 a.m. sharp.

Anyway, much needed, and thanks. Time to paint a new built-in!

Sam said...

Great video to show the spare heir's prom date in about 10 years.

Also nice to see the gals in their miniskirts - that brings back a lot of memories.
