More special than you

Psst! Dad! I’ve got special needs.
Doesn’t that make you melt just a little bit?

Listen kid, don’t push it. We’re all special.

Don’t gimme that. My needs are way
more special than you.

Oh yeah? You got a mortgage repayment on the tenth? A family to feed? A hallway skirting to paint before the carpet guys come?


Hah! Thought not. Shuddup then.



So. You got any caca in your pants?

Thought not. I win.

    Elbog – It wasn’t the happiest end, no.

    enc- trumped is the right word.

    Nan P- glad you liked it. If only you could’ve been there!

    Hammie- I’m already no. 6 in the house. That’s behind Jimmy the dog too. It’s ruff.

    Angie B- get your blog on! Just cos you’re a working mom with twins. Thanks for dropping in and a big hug to los niños y el jefe.

    camom- you’re welcome and thank you!
