DYLANism: What’s that in your pocket?
This morning I woke up and got up for breakfast. I made it all the way to the shower before either of our kids woke up. Dylan usually wakes up before I do but she seems to be running a bit of a fever the past two days and so has slept a little bit later.
I got out of the shower, dried off, and started the rest of my routine. Dylan walked in our bathroom, all quiet, sleepy and passive, about the same time Mom rotated into the shower from her nightly slumber. Luckily, I was able to get my underwear on before Dylan turned the corner.
Dylan stood there watching me brush my teeth in my underwear. When I was done she asked, “is that a pocket Daddy?” looking at the sewn fly in my boxers.
Now, I realize the bulk of my readers are female but I have to guess you know what athletic boxers look like, so I will spare you the description, and how the fly is sewn on to the front. For those of you that can’t imagine, I would just like to leave you with the adjectives: snug, majestic, and Micheal Jordon.
OK, I would like to leave you with that description but it wouldn’t be entirely true. And I know Micheal Jordan isn’t exactly an adjective but Hanes is.
Dylan left the door hanging wide open for a witty reply however with the ‘pocket‘ question. But, as I looked over my shoulder to see Mommy looking at me in a somewhat unglamorous position, after staggering into the shower room (she rarely opens her eyes when she makes this trip), I figured I better behave.
I replied, “why yes Dylan it is a pocket?”
“What’s it for Daddy?”
The one liners are just sitting on the tip of my tongue but rolling with it I told her, “Well I can put my keys in there. Or my wallet…..Or both.”
Dylan deduces, ” Isn’t it hard to find there Daddy?” (thanks sport)
I agreed, “Well that’s the idea Dylan” as I looked over to Mommy for approval.
Mommy just shook her head and flushed her face into the palms of her hands in disbelief.
I don’t know what she was shaking her head about? I was proud of myself for keeping the conversation to a ‘G’ rating and yet still a wee bit amusing (pardon the pun)
So, to all you new parents out there, you have these conversations to look forward too!
