Bacon’s Show and Tell

This month we were to focus on something that happened to you while you were a child.  Something that happened that was funny… perhaps now… but at that time it was your shining what the heck were you thinking moment.  This could have happened to you, your spouse, your children or your parents.  Something that to this day you still can’t forget about without smiling and/or laughing.

This month we are tossing the keyboard to daddy because he has a story of something that happened to him as a child.  With that in mind – here you go daddy!

First up I have to say that this picture is not me.  Really, it’s not. 🙂  I have a cuter butt – ha!  But this picture is actually on a greeting card and gives you a picture of my story.  And friends, you can ask Fozzie.  I can paint a picture – evil HA!

When I was probably the age of this boy, my mom had bought me my very first pair of cowboy boots.  I ❤ those boots.  I wore them everywhere – even to bed.  Well one day, my mom roped me to the side and told me it was time for a bath.  You know how boys are with baths – eeww.  So we have to bring plenty of toys in there to keep us company.  Mom fixed my bath and then left me to my business while she talked on the phone.  That’s when the best idea hit me ever!  I wonder if those cowboy boots were water proof.  So I stumbled down the hall, put my new boots on that I only had for about a week and then jumped back in the tub in all my glory – my birthday suit with my boots.

I then splashed around getting water every.where in the bathroom.  I filled my boots up with water and splashed some more.  Finally mom called me and told me it was time to get out.  So I jumped out in my glory and walked into the front room.  That’s right… in my sloshy cowboy boots that were still filled with water on the hardwood floors and carpet.  It was one of my finer moments in life.  And no contrary to what my beloved says, it wasn’t just last week.

At first, my mom was like what the heck and had the frozen look on her face.  Then her face turned red….and I still say an almost purple look from holding her breath not to cuss.  That’s when she finally said it.  Not the whole name you hear sometimes when you *know* you are in trouble but the, “You just wait until I get a hold of you little man” phrase.  Shivers – that’s scarier than the full name.

So I learned a couple of lessons this day.  #1 – Cowboy boots aren’t water proof.  They were completed ruined from my time in the bathtub and had to be trashed.  #2 – Mom had a beautiful color of purple going on in her face and looked more purple that day than Violet in Willy Wonka.  #3 – Cleaning hardwood floors is hard work.  #4 – Mom had a pretty wicked right hook on my cute little butt that day.

Dear Bacon,
I just thought I would stick my head in to say hey little pig.  I read your blog every week.  Love your answers.  You’re smart for a little oinker.  If you ever want to hang out, just give me a call.  Signed Jeffery

Dear Jeffery,

WOW!  Thanks for stopping by.  You are really tall.  Do you play basketball?  I think you would be awesome in it.  Just think about the fortune and fame my friend.  I’ll be giving you a call soon to hang out.  I think we would have a ball in my magical back yard.  Do you know there are unicorns back there?  AND I think I’ve seen Bigfoot back there once or twice as well.  There’s no telling what we could find together.  Be on the look out for my call!

Sometimes, you just need that one place you can find that you can call all yours to get a quick forty winks.  I found mine.  Too bad for daddy.  He will just have to wear different shoes today.  Signed Shoesleeper

Dear Shoesleeper,
Hey, if it fits – you must sits.  You really kind of look comfortable all asleep there in your palace.  I mean heck, if the old lady can live in her shoe – why can’t you? Right?  A cat has his rights too in this world.  You might as well hang a sign off of those shoelaces that say, “No Vacancy” so your daddy can find him a new pair of shoes for the future!

Dear Bacon,
What?  I’m just hanging out in my home riding my bike.  Doesn’t every dog dress up and fantasize about that old show CHiPS?  I think I’m more of the Erik Estrada character – you think?  I’ll tell you a secret but you can’t tell anyone.  These black boots are my favorites!  Sometimes when no one is looking, I like to walk around the house singing, “These boots are made for walking… and that’s just what I’ll do… one of these days these boots are going to walk all over you… come on boots!”  Ssshh- that’s our secret.  Signed Ponch

Dear Ponch,
I got nothing on this one.  You go my friend.

Dear Bacon,
Hey ladies.  This is where you can find me every day during the week. I”m just sunning myself, getting my sleep on and advertising what you got missing in your lives.  Come around and see me if you get a chance.  Signed SuperStud

Dear SuperStud,
Well, someone is feeling confident these days, aren’t they?  I do admit, you do look well comfortable.  Hey, if you can’t brag about yourselves, who can, right? You just work it my friend and be happy.  YOLO – You only live once – go for it.

Dear Bacon,
LOL – in 3, 2, 1 – the humans will be yelling for the sacred paper on a roll.  When they weren’t looking, I took it from their special place that they call the human scratch box.  They like to take their time cleaning out my box.  We shall see how they like it when they don’t have their special roll.  Insert evil purr/laugh.  Signed EvilPuss

Dear EvilPuss,
You are so playing with fire there my friend.  Even the purr things here don’t mess with the sacred roll in the human scratch box.  That is a HUGE No-No.  That’s like signing your own walking papers.  You really might want to rethink that.
