Up Dog

Last week after I picked Sammi up from camp:

Me:  "Hey Sammi!  How was Girl Scout camp?"

Sammi:  "It was awesome!  We sang songs and played games..."

Me:  "What did you have for lunch?"

Sammi:  "For lunch?

Me:  "Yeah.  What did they give you for lunch today?"

Sammi (grinning):  "For lunch today,  I had a big bowl of updog."

Me (taking the bait):  "Updog?  What's updog?"

Sammi:  "Not much.  What's up with you dawg?!?  HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"

Yes... I fell for it.

Oh Snap!

I was driving down the street the other day with Sammi, when we drove past a lady standing on the street talking to the mailman.  She was barely wearing a teeny-tiny pink string bikini, weighed about 300 pounds and was covered from head to toe in tattoos.

Sammi:  "Hmmm."

Me:  "What?"

Sammi:  "Did you see that lady?"

Me (chuckling):  "Oh yeah."

Sammi (looking conflicted):  "Well..."

Me:  "What is it?"

Sammi:  "Well, I think it's great that she dresses how she likes and some of her tattoos looked kinda cool, but..."

Me:  "But what?"

Sammi:  "But I think if she’s gonna stand around on the street in a bikini like that, then maybe she needs to spend a little less time in the tattoo parlor and a little more time in the gym..."

I am participating in the Dude Write Starting Lineup this week where you can find some excellent posts by other "dude-bloggers".

Best Dad Ever

Sammi always tells me that I am the 'best dad ever'.  The other day, my mom and I were sitting in her kitchen as Sammi sat next to us coloring a picture, when my dad came in from outside.

Me:  "Sammi, did you know that my dad is the best dad ever?"

Sammi (without looking up from her coloring book):  "No he isn't.  You're the best dad ever."

Me:  "I know you like to tell me that, but when I was a little boy, I always thought that my daddy was the best dad ever."

Sammi:  "Well you were wrong.  He's not the best - you are."

Me:  "That's awfully nice of you to say to me, but who do you think taught me to be such a good daddy?"

Sammi looked up from her coloring book.  She looked over at my dad and then shrugged,  "From Grandma, of course."
