Chattin' with Saget

Submitted by brad on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 00:09

In anticipation of my impending meet'n'greet with Bob Saget, I've been thinking of what to say during our brief yet awkward 20 second encounter.

Top Ten Things to Say to Bob Saget

10. "Will you folllow me on Twitter?"

9. "I love you in How I Met Your Mother"

8. "Have you met........Ted?"

7. "Remember my face. Remember. My. Face."

6. "Could you move to the side? I'd like one of my wife and I."

5. "Why didn't you air any of my videos? Do you know how hard it is to get a cat into a dress?"

I've just finished watching Taken 2 and I feel I have to comment on a disturbing trend in movies. Taken, Taken 2, Live Free or Die Hard. It's been growing every year. A subtle, insidious cancer, designed to break family bonds, sow discontent between father and child, and ruin the the traditional family unit. I'm talking about ultra violent super dads.

Happy Anniversary

It's stuck in my head like an icepick to the brain.

That's my girl!

I know, my return should be a trifle more auspicious than griping and moaning, but it is what it is. The fire in my belly has long been extinguished by the daily struggle to survive work, three continuously sick kids, and neverending house renos. If something's motivated me enough to write I might as well embrace it before it fades.

Whenever I try to play Batman with Ryan, he's quite insistent that "No, you're Robin!".  Two years old and he already thinks >I'M< the sidekick? Time to make a child cry.  I can't quite decide if that's immature or sound parenting. Isn't it a Dad's job to make sure his children are humble and respectful? A litle fatherly reality check?

I was thinking I'd start with:

"A sidekick who can eat candy whenever he wants and doesn't crap his pants! " <KAPOW!>

And follow that up with a dash of:
