I need him to help me with my tie.
Now, we all know that I'm just a mom, but really? Did we have to wait for dad? I mean, how hard can it be to tie a tie? It looks like one of those over-under-through the loops and pull sort of things. Easy, right?
Um, no. Not so much. And I'm not sure what was the funniest part; Jock trying to tie it, me reading the stupid instructions off the web page that Mr. Google was kind enough to locate for me, the fact I Googled the stupid instructions in the first place (but seriously? over 48 MILLION different web pages for how to tie a tie?!?), or that I felt the need to video it.
Or quite possibly, it was his final comment to me as he got too frustrated to continue and decided to wait for dad after all:
I'm never going to learn to tie this stupid thing. I'll just always have to come home to have Dad do it. On my wedding day, he'll have to come tie it for me.
But at least he's promising to get married some day, so that's a bonus.
*The reason for needing to fight with the stupid tie in the first place? The baseball coach's rules: On game days the team needs to wear slacks, dress shirts and ties.***also? I'm having problems with my stupid media player, so I couldn't check the video. So... if it's not nearly as funny as I thought it was at the time? Sorry. I couldn't confirm that before I posted. I have a sneaking suspicion that a certain teenager (possibly his father.... ) was messing around with my computer, and now I'm missing key files. And I will never know which ones they are. Argh!!**
