Trot being Trot being Trot

While I was hard at work trying to convince the masses they REALLY needed a new living room group, the mailman was delivering a package on my front porch. Sent by my good friend Kelly, it consisted of Trot Nixon's autograph, a signed Trot Nixon baseball, and a hilarious letter from Kelly, complete with a picture of the Original Dirt Dog laughing at a picture of my Trot dressed up like a girl.

I have no idea what he thought about some demented 3 year old cross dressing child that bears his name, and thanks to Kelly printing off a copy of my post where Rakes called 911 and Trot practically begged the officer to lock him up, a child whose apparent greatest wish is to go to the Big House. All I know is I'm really grateful she took the time to think about us.

A huge assist goes to Cyn for snapping the picture and keeping it a secret, even though we'd texted each other after the fact and before today. Cyn, remind me to contact you first the next time I've committed a crime; I honestly believe you'd do hard time than rat me out. ;)

Finally, even though he doesn't really understand the awesomeness of it all just yet, Trot was STILL a pretty happy guy after I explained what came in the mail.


Either that or he's got some really wicked awesome gas.

It could go either way.

That's just so cool, Ted! Cyn and Ms Kelly are amazing.

Ted D said...

Yes they are, John.

Made my day for sure, Scouser.

Cyn said...

You have NO idea how it killed me to not tell you anything!! :)

I'm good at keeping secrets, though. But, still, I wanted to tell you so much! Glad Kelly was able to get it all out sooner rather than later because I don't know how much longer I could have held out!

SHE is amazing. The first thing she said to me when we met up that day was "Okay, this is my plan..." and then she told me what she wanted to do!

Ted D said...

If I didn't think so much of you I'd be mad. ;)

She is awesome. And I can totally see her taking charge; this is why, when I was totally lost in the subway last year, the first person I called for was "KELLY!"

You guys are great; thank you so much for thinking about me and my boy, although Rakes wants to know when he's getting an autograph from the player he was named after. :)

His Nanny's maiden name isn't cutting it right now. ;)

Tree Newt said...

Very cool! And I think it's gas.

Wait until I send the kid a box of M-80's. You think he was excited for this!

Ted D said...

Me too, Mattie. And Jr? You send him M-80's and I'm sending HIM to the Cape for the summer.

That is some kind of awesome, Ted!

It really is, Dawn.
