Dr. Phil NEVER talked about This

I ask you: is this normal sleep attire? For whatever reason, Rakes has gotten into this weird habit of wanting to go to sleep dressed like a mental patient for the past few weeks. Tonight, it was dinosaur pajamas, his pre-school T-shirt, and my Redskins toboggan from when I was a kid: only HE wanted to wear it backwards.

All this came after I got him out of the tub. He stood there with his towel on, shivering and going "I'm TOLD, Daddy, I'm Told" for about 3.7 seconds, then dissolved into a giggle fit.

Upon me asking him what was so funny, he belly laughed and pointed downward.

Sometimes I find it hard to go on with a straight face.

So, now it looks as if the Santana deal is out the window, which is fine by me. The way I see it, we've won 2 World Series without him, so it's not like we need him to win. Thing is, I'll get up tomorrow and they'll be saying we are minutes away from announcing a deal.

Right now, I just wish they'd say yea or nay so we can all get on with our lives: I've had 7 months of intense drama this year already, thank you very much. I want to enjoy Christmas without worrying about who will make up the Sox middle relief corp this year, but you and I both know it'll keep me up at night.

Finally, rumor is Varitek has instructed Scott Boras to explore contract extension talks with the Red Sox: in all the Lowell/Santana mess I'd forgotten the Captain's deal runs out after next year. So now I've got THAT to obsess about as well.

Somebody hold me: I think I need a hug.

Dude, a guy like you should be obsessing about the fact their is a new super bug out there and you can get it threw the air vents in your car even. Just driving down the highway on a nice sunny day and VOOM in your air vent and up your nostrils go the new super bug.

48 hrs later you are sipping caption crunch threw a stomach tube.


I wouldn't give the Santana thing another thought. Sleep tight!

Ted D said...

Tex,

It's still possible: I'm just sick of all the speculation.

Bub, are you TRYING to put me in the insane asylum? I DON'T need to hear about that, trust me.

I think I'll focus on the trivial stuff, thanks.

Tex said...

caption crunch threw?? scott get a dictionary

scott h said...

I'm on a tight schedule didn't have time to hit spell check. Cut me some slack Tix , I'm busy.

Ted D said...

Scott, busy doing what? Counting how many pairs of tennis shoes you're up to by now?

Edge of Design said...

According to Websters dictionary, that is NOT a toboggan on Rakes head. It's a toque! hahahahaha A toboggan is something you ride down a snow-covered hill on. You're too funny there Ted! Oh and by the way, toque is pronounced

two with a k at the end twok

Ted D said...

Edge,

Down south we call a watch cap a toboggan. Of course they also call a water hose a hosepipe, so what do I know?

Redbeard76 said...

LOL Rakes!

I can't wait till this Santana talk is over.

Ted D said...

You and me both, Stephen. It's wearing my nerves.

Stacy said...

I see nothing wrong with the boy's sleep attire. It's the safety and well being of nursing home residents you should be concerned about. :)

Ted D said...

Ah, the old folks will be fine, Stacy. Most of 'em can't hear, so we should be good.

Tree Newt said...

All I know is this: I'm glad Rakes hasn't picked up his dad's sleeping attire from when we were kids. I still have scars, bro. I still have scars.

Ted D said...

What are you babbling about now? I don't even remember what slept in: how can you?

Tree Newt said...

Do you really want me to go there? Seriously?

Ted D said...

Mattie, honestly, I'm lost. However, before you embarass me where 2 billion people have the potential to see it, email me what in the world you are talking about.

scott h said...

This blog just took a turn for the worse. Reminds me of a Clapton song I will leave it at that.

scott h said...

Newt is that you? Where the heck have you been.

Ted D said...

You know what Gramps? Put your money where your mouth is and give US a blog to critique.

I'm hopeful, but I won't hold my breath.

scott h said...

The point being my blog wont have Newt speaking about what I did or did not sleep in as a child.

Tree Newt said...

Wonderful Tonight, it wasn't, Bub.

Skivvies, bro, skivvies. I still have the scars from you bouncing into the room in 'em. ¥eesh.

Ted D said...

Jealousy is one of the seven deadly sins, brother.

So sad it still bothers you to this day.

Tree Newt said...

Jealousy had nothing to do with it, little bro. Nightmares of sasquatch coming into the room are what it's about, you hairy little man.

Tree Newt said...

And I'm not Catholic, so the seven deadly sins don't apply.

Ted D said...

Yeah, but you ARE a dink.

So I think they do apply.

As an aside, we may have the most dysfunctional family I know of.

Where did Old Man River go, anyways?

scott h said...

Someone is a little testy this evening. Are you not getting any Attention at home.

Ted D said...

THAT is none of your business, Old Timer.

Besides, isn't it past your bedtime?

~**Dawn**~ said...

Oh dear God... I am not ready to think about no Tek... I am still not completely recovered from the Lowell negotiations. Although it would be nice to have Cap'n locked up before it's ever an issue. Yes, Theo, let's get right on this.
