The Plane! The Plane!


I would like to personally take a moment and thank the fellow in the seat across from Jake and Jack for his choice in fashion... after all, had his tee not proudly proclaimed, in bold capital letters, "Guitarist Are Better At Fingering", I would have missed out on a slightly uncomfortable conversation with my pre-teenage sons.  

And that would have been sad.

You'll be happy to know they found you quite "gross".

Jack would also like to let you know that you "won't be meeting any nice girls dressed like that".

Keep up the good work... bringing families together one sexually offensive shirt at a time.

Oh, got to love those discussions.

When Slugger first moved home, he had a lot of inappropriate forms of affection, one of which was kissing me on the lips much too intensely. To avoid that I started doing "European" kisses on the cheeks with him. He thought it was fun.

In the year that he's lived with me, his forms of affection have become more appropriate and "normal." (He had just never lived with a family that was affectionate before me.) So we haven't done the "European" kiss thing in a while. This morning he said "Mom, let's do a French kiss."

You can imagine my surprise. And the slightly uncomfortable conversation that followed. :-)

When I first read furiousball's comment, I thought it said "lick that guy in his fingers." Now THAT would have been offensive.

I'm afraid my husband would get a kick out of that offensive shirt, but on the other hand, he is too classy to ever wear something like that! He does insist on wearing his "Jesus is coming - look busy" t-shirt that I'm not crazy about, though. What are you going to do? Musicians!!!

I'm sorry your kids had to be exposed to that. Sounds like they have good judgement, though. You're raising a couple of gentlemen.

:-)

Ugh! I hate those t-shirts and the gross people who wear them. Seriously, I'm makin a totally grossed out face right now just thinking about that guy and his shirt. And that can't be good for the little lines around my face.

Oh boy... am I not looking forward to those conversations. Please stay little forever my babies!

Kristin said...

Seriously, he looked like Howard Stern...

Oh shit when they hit ten or so, you just can't change the subject...like ooohhh look a shiny rock...and they forget? Dam.

Too freaking funny though, really. See you needed to drink after that conversation huh?

My 14 year old and I were once in an elevator with an old fat guy whose shirt read, 'My beard tastes like pussy".

Shelley said...

Sounds like a real winner.

But I'm with Joannah ...J & J have their heads on straight ...and you're boys are true gents.

Aaaaaak! I can't sto laughing at what Jason said.

Now that, would have been and even more uncomfortable conversation. Love you little vacation observations girl . . .keep 'em coming! Mai tai's and all! :)

carrie said...

Looks like I've had a few mai tai's in my comment, sorry for all those errors - my 'fingers' are trying to outtype my brain.

Have fun over there!

elizabeth said...

Oh gross! While the play on words is amusing, who wears something like that out of the house? I couldn't agree more with your son's comment.

Pollyanna said...

EWWWWW.

I hate the tshirts that say, "I give mustache rides for free". EWWWWW again.

AND your son is right, that yucky man will never meet a nice girl dressed like that. Can I say EWWWW again?

You have all the fun!

Kristin said...

Van, you kick him and Jason, you lick him... I'll take photos and blog about it later.

HA HA HA

See? I would have probably just side stepped the question all together and told the kids to sit up straight and, "...oh, hey! How about some Chex Mix?"
