Teh Funny - Hair Edition

Scene Chez Borepatch. I'm looking through pictures with #2 Son.
#2 Son: I wonder if I'm going to go bald like you.

Me: Don't worry, baldness is inherited through the mother. Your Grandpa and Uncle Scott have great hair.

Me: Besides, when I was young, I had fabulous hair.

#2 Son: Your hair was gay?
Who would believe that my kids are snarky?


Jay G said...

Yeah, "they" say that baldness is on the mother's side.

"They", quite frankly, are full of shit. My mother's father had a full head of hair when he died in his 60s. Her younger brother still has all his hair in his 50s.

Dad, OTOH, lost all his hair before he was 25. As did his father. As did I.

That's why I'm not going to get all worked up the day The Boy comes home with a purple spiked mohawk - he ought to enjoy it while he has it...

Borepatch said...

Actually it's an interesting day when one of your kids shows up with a colored mohawk (luckily in this case, a "fauxhawk", where the sides aren't shaved).

It's just one of the many ways that they test you.

Your plan seems on point to me.

JD said...

Ted - are they ever NOT testing you? That seems up there with death and taxes in my house - test dad and see if he has any nerves left. When we get to the last one, step on it then act cute and smile so we don't get killed. . . .
They have it down to an art

= )

Borepatch said...

Ah, JD, you have daughters. It's getting a lot harder for the boys to get away with the "Bambi Eyes" thing.


Corey-Jan Albert said...

Ah, yes... but the boys still can take you down with a wink and a grin.

Borepatch said...

Corey-Jan, glad to see you!

Sadly, their ability to take me down with a wink and a grin increases by the year.
