The Wisdom of Little John

Little John Conquers the WorldSo I’m speaking to my wife, and the subject of her father comes up. It’s a little touchy, understandably, so I’m gently joking a bit.

I mentioned that I re-read Thanks for All the Squirrels yesterday, and I made myself cry a little. (Ok, I did have to wipe a few tears, to be perfectly honest.)

“I’m a big sissy,” I say.

John pipes up:

“Well just because you got a dick between your legs don’t mean you can’t cry.”

I couldn’t help but laugh. Dad would have been proud, I think.

    I read that, the squirrels post, and it made me cry.

    You’re a good writer, Lou.

    And John is very wise.

    Thank you, Beth.

    I’ll pass along your sentiments to Little John.

    And in your case it’s not only OK to cry despite your having a dick, it’s OK to cry over the size of your…oh, nevermind, that joke is just cruel…

    I see you’ve known other members (heh) of my end of the gene pool. Rather intimately (in the Biblical sense), it would appear.

    Tell Little John he should print up some t shirts with that on them! He’d make a fortune. I’ll buy 3– one for my husband and two for my oldest boys.

  6. Lou FCD Says:

    I’ll let him know, Kym. He’s out and about the neighborhood, visiting single moms at the moment (read – trying to pick up easy chicks).
