The things we do to amuse our children

A pair of swim goggles. Your gateway to hilarity.

The things we do to amuse our kids.

The above antics prompted these comments:

Junior Ricardipus #1 (age 7):
"You look cool!"

Junior Ricardipus #2 (age 5)"
"I don't think you look good at all."

Junior Ricardipus #1 again:

Astute fellow, that boy. Spotted the closet rock star in his dad, no problem.

1st!! Has this photo been digitally re-mastered, or do you wear those all the time?

Ricardipus said...

Wear them? Those are my *eyes*, John!

Rik said...

Was this in Chuck E Cheese?

If so, you are excused.

Ricardipus said...

rik - no. It was at Chateau Ricardipus. Upstairs, in fact.

And stop complaining about me not posting enough. This is what you get. Quantity, not quality.

Good god man. This weblog-thingy needs to come with a health warning.

Ricardipus said...

bk - you should see the *rest* of the photos.

Black Knight said...

um, is that a threat?

Nice "eyes".

His eyes really do look like that. I've seen them. The other glasses are just a cover up.

I see that you've done away with the anonymity thing and are ready to be mobbed by the adoring crowds at your next mega-conference.

As to how Mrs. Ricardipus does anything, it's the same as you do: when you don't have a choice, you do it. I'm sure she views CEC in the same light. The kids won't thank you for it, even though they might have meant to at one point or another.

Get me another coffee; I'm feeling a little too resigned..

Ricardipus said...

I really have no idea what CEC is.

And how will anyone recognize me without those goggles on? Hmmm?

zoe said...

fvlifp - what i've done: flipped.

Alethea said...

CEC: Chuck E Cheese?

skljig: a dance on a ski lift.

Ricardipus said...

Zoe - I have had one before. It's not pretty.

Alethea - oh yeah... must have erased that from my memory... duh.
