Isn't There A Chicago Song About Inspiration?

Let it never be said again that I do not inspire. Up until yesterday I was unaware that I could inspire anyone. Lord knows I’ve tried. Just last night, I tried to inspire my three year old to take a bath.

Me: I’ll give you candy.
Manster: What kind?
Me: Delicious candy.
Manster: That’s not a kind, Mom. What color is it? Is it orange?
Me: Yes.
Manster: I don’t want the orange. I want the brown.

Wait a minute. Now that I look at that conversation a little closer on my screen it doesn't seem like inspiration at all. I swear in my head that little dialogue didn't sound so bribey.

So, what I really want to drive home is that Henry eventually did take his bath, and that not last night, but the night before I did inspire someone. Behold the following link to Us and Them. Pay attention to the comment section. Then lookie here to see how Captain Dumbass (he prefers to be called that, for realsies) holds good on his cyber word.

I just found the blog, Us and Them by chance this weekend and I fell in like with it after only a few posts. I only had to read two before I decided to bookmark it. However, when I saw this, I fell in LOVE with this blog. It cracks me up every time I look at it. I haven't clarified with the Thems, but I do so hope that one of them is Captain Dumbass and that this picture was, indeed, taken on a typical day in their life.

Inspiration is a funny thing, you know? But Klingons are funnier.

BTW: I tried to repay Us and Them tenfold. I'm afraid I might have only done it 2-ply.

"You know our love was meant to be
The kind of love that lasts forever
And I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time"

Wait, hubby's a big ass mountain man, right? Heh heh, you're a lucky man, Jeremy. Look! A bear! (run away)

Unfortunately I am neither one of the Klingon's. And the other one is not my 'life partner.' Not that there's anything wrong with that. However, if I did own a Klingon uniform I would so wear it everywhere. Ooo! And a bat'lef. Oh, things would be different if I had a bad ass sword...thingy.

Would I reveal my complete geekhood if I corrected Capt. Dumbass' spelling of bat'leth? Yes? Okay, nevermind.
