My son made me proud IN A DREAM not long ago.
Before I elaborate, let me say that my son, who will be 12 at the end of this month, frequently makes my wife and I proud. Being the age he is, however, frequently he makes us want to kick his little round rump into the middle of next week.
A few nights ago, I was having a nice night's sleep. I had a dream that bain romney was up here in Maine and my family and I had the misfortune of being in his path as he was working his "magic" with the public. He approached my family and, speaking to my son first, he shook his hand and offered him 3 bain romney buttons "for your folks and you". The funny thing about this dream is that it would be HIGHLY unlikely that bain romney would approach my African American son or my Puerto Rican wife unless he had an army of photographers present to record how well he related to the "Peasants and the little Brown People".
Anyway, in my dream, my son politely and respectfully shook bain romney's hand and then handed the buttons back telling him that our family wouldn't need them and that we were actively supporting President Obama's re-election.
I know that this was just a dream. However, what makes me proud is the fact that I know that this is EXACTLY how my son would react in such a situation, even at his young age.
Also, given how I expect this fall's election campaign to progress, I don't think we'll see bain romney up here in Maine again unless he takes a Summer vacation here after getting his ass handed to him at either his convention or in the General Election.
I thought that some of you might enjoy this. I did. It's my 2 cents and quite possibly overpriced at that!
It's great to have kids you love so much isn't it?
