Laughin On The Job

Two fiery pirates on break from Pirates of the Caribbean Uno.

OK, this is hilarious. Fred and Pablo had just finished a game of Enchanted Forest. I was up for the next game—Uno. Pablo was ready to play, but I needed another minute. I told him I was finishing some work. 'No problem,' he said, and ran downstairs. I thought it was strange that he was so agreeable. Normally he sticks around and starts demanding play. A couple minutes later he emerged from the stairwell. 'Papa, are you done working? I just finished some work downstairs. I'm ready to play now too.'


The dude was in Grady's room tapping away on his computer. 'I was writing a lot of letters Papa,' he told me. 'But then I had too many, so I erased some.'

A few minutes later I picked myself off the floor. My gut hurt from laughing so hard. Pablo was laughing with me. But he had that 'what are we laughing about?' look on his face.

No matter what kind of loot awaits me under the tree, the best gift I could ever ask for already happened.

By the way, we're having a great day around here. Jo Ann and Grady are out shopping. Fred and Matt from Dangerbird are at Fred 62 having lunch. And P and I are, yknow, just puttin in another day workin in the salt mines.... Oh snap—Grady's computer just made a strange 'red alert' kinda noise. Trouble. Gotta run.
