Dinner with Des

Superpounce had a great field trip last night. She had a close brush with (as she put it) someone "famous." Nine-year-old Americans think the greatest thing in the world is to be famous. The second greatest is to meet someone famous. As I've said before, I'd much rather give Superpounce a "famous" role model who is a powerful feminine achetype rather than mere arm bling that flounces an unhealthy body across a stage.

Des did not disappoint. She made a BIG deal of Superpounce and made her feel truly special. Thanks, Desiree. You are a real champion.

So here is how the night went.

Thanks again, Desiree. You know we'll be cheering when you drop the bomb this year.

My but don't you look natty in that bow tie??!!

Superpounce is a lucky kid.

Jessi said...

Seriously, why you so cranky? Is it because someone made you wear that pink and blue bowtie? :)

greyhound said...

Maybe I'm worried about the photographer getting the camera to work, but that's about as smilely as I get. I just look glum because I'm standing next to Desiree's pearly white smile.

Someone needs to wipe the shit-eating grin off your face.

It is Desiree Ficker after all.

Bigun said...

I've been thinking about getting a couple of Bow Ties for work - your picture clinches it - ain't gonna happen. Gosh that Desiree is tall...

Iron Benny said...

Dude, you get to meet Desiree Ficker, AND get a picture, and you and it doesn't warrant a smile? Dude, have you no idea hot she is? Hello, D Ficker. Triathlon Diva! Hottie!

the Dread Pirate Rackham said...

a pink and blue bow tie? very lawyerly indeed.

Oh. wow. So many reasons to smile, two hotties AND that tie. And you are wearing the lawyer face!

Srsly - your daughter could not be cuter.

Curly Su said...

i LOVE the bow tie. don't let anyone tell you otherwise...

Amy said...

Did Desiree say something mean about the bowtie? I'm all ABOUT the tie. Not everyone can pull it off. And it's got pink in it. What's not to like?

Nytro said...

um... benny:

sweetie... you, uh, know that i read greyhound's blog, right? the only hottie YOU know is me. and maybe angelina jolie.

and, i'm with laurie, stop trying to hog the spotlight with your smile. it's very rude to the triathlon diva.

truly, i'm just surprised you included her head in the picture. i seem to remember my head being completely CUT OUT of our picture together. (was it my chesticles?)
