Tough Guys and Understanding Women


Son: Mommy, what do I look like?

Me: You look like a cool guy awesome super hero cowboy fire fighter.

Son: (Looks puffed up and proud) But do I look tough?

Me: Oh yea, really tough. Like big guy tough.

Son: I'm bigger than Marjorie (in police costume).

Marjorie: (Just raises her eyebrow and looks at me).

Me: Um, no but maybe someday.

Son: No, I'm bigger!

Marjorie: (Gives me a look that says, "ok, humor him")

Me: Oh yea I didn't see it at first but you are HUGE!

Son: (Struts out of the room)
