Squirl's Nest

Go for a ride?

Then last night I was out checking for birds again. Saw my first blue heron of the season. I usually take back roads that lead to the river. Obviously a good place to see birds, deer, woodchucks, etc.

One of those roads leads to a boat launch. Just as I was driving away from the turn-around at the end and started heading back I saw a small, older station wagon heading my way.

There looked to be a carload of good old boys in there. Didn't think much of it, plenty of them around, until I got almost even with the car. In the back seat on the driver's side the window was open half-way. There was a very tall teenage boy sitting with his face, from the nose up, sticking out the window as far as he could get it. It looked like when dog owners put the window down a crack so the dog can't really get its nose all the way out. I hope the boy got some good smells to satisfy him. I didn't stop to ask.

I have discovered with teenage boys, its always best not to ask. When mine come home from school, my oldest instantly takes off his pants, and eats a peanut butter sandwhich about three inches thick in his underwear.

I dont want to know why, But he does it every single day.He just looks so happy in his underpants, with that sandwhich, I figure why bother him.

Good point. And what is it with teenage boys and peanut butter sandwiches? Ichabod's mother says he always came home from school and made himself sandwiches that were "nose-deep" in peanut butter.

He'd drink glass after glass of milk while making more sandwiches and ask what was for dinner. Are your boys always that hungry?

I bet someone in that car farted, and nose-boy was trying to get away from the smell.

I should have thought of that. Especially with the comments from dooce this morning. Thanks, Ladybug, now that picture will be even more ingrained in my mind. :-)

Christian 190, uh I'm still working on what you're saying here. I think you're telling me that my post is boring but you can't chat or play games with your friends as the teacher will get mad and report you to the office.

Sierrabella, it does seem like a good guess doesn't it? Yes, at least that one could get his nose out the window.

Jess, how do you keep up with those grocery bills?? Man, that's a lotta eating.

They probably had a contest. We used to drink quarts of Hershey's Chocolate milk for it's fart inducing tendancies. We once drove for hours accros the the Canadian wildrness in sub-freezing temp in a van with all the windows and doors open. We bought Hershey Choc. milk in International Falls, Drove all the way to Dryden before van sufficiently aired out to support human life.

Squirl its about 200 bucks a week or so. I a good shopper we get quite alot, the boys are constantly eating and growing like weeds. And then whine when I starve them those sissy.

Child support. Thats how. Daddy makes lots of money. Children eat lots of food. And grow. Damn them.

Great White - and I suppose you'll tell me it was all worth it. I love the story. :-)

Jess, it's a good thing their dad can afford their food. Prices are horrible these days. I'd say if you're feeding your family, with those hungry boys, on $200/week, you're a very good shopper.

My spanish is limited to the bad words, so I'll go with another topic! I am now certain that I have no intention of having children, especially sons. I thought Dan was expensive to feed! And he's just one guy! One!

Thanks, Bucky!

Courtney, yes growing kids (especially) boys are very hungry all the time. :-)

So the first comment - "Acabo de querer para ser un asno listo" was supposed to be "I just wanted to be a smart ass."

Well, I just put it in one of those free spanish translators and it comes out as "I have just wanted to be a ready burro." Although both comments have some truth to them, I need to put down the translation book.

The second comment "Pepe vive en el bosque con la ardilla y el cuatro eyed corcovéa." was supposed to say "Pepe lives in the forest with the squirrel and the four eyed buck."

It was the best I could do with a spanish handheld dictionary. Sorry I suck.

My Spanish sucks burro ass, but I was able to figure out the last sentence.
Good enough for us, K1ttyf0nk!

Thanks! That made me laugh out loud just now!! The mental image of that tall kid with his nose out the window is just too much.
