One day I heard on the radio a song called “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult. I liked is so I looked it up on YouTube. The video was old and cheesy.
I guess I was walking around the house singing part of the song; “Oh no. There goes Tokyo. Oh no Godzilla.
After a week my kids insisted I show them the video which I did with a little trepidation knowing it might scare them.
They loved the song but my middle child was staring at Godzilla as he shot a flame ball out of his mouth while he was swatting at airplanes. “Daddy”, he asked. “What is that?” he said pointing at Godzilla. “What does it look like?” I responded. “A man in a dinosaur costume”, he replied.
So today, as we were singing it together in the car, my middle child – oh, how creative is he, fired out this line; “Oh no / Tokyo / There goes Joe Mihevc.”
Joe Mihevc is our city councillor.
I may have told Stewie during the election in Toronto that we we not going to vote for Joe because he wanted to put a streetcar on Eglinton like he did on St. Clair and if that were to happen they would have to remove hi favourite places on Eglinton, namely, Baskin Robbins, Big Bite Burger and the Thirsty Fox Pub. He never forgot that and I would catch him passing along this information to anyone and everyone who would listen.
And yes, I corrected him once I found out that was not true about Joe. He has not asked me in a worried manner about his “favourite” places since.
Also in this urban daddy’s household comes the latest expression from Linus whenever we catch him doing something to torment his younger brother, and send him to his room.
“You just ruined my best day!” is what he blurts out to us.
maybe he should have thought about that before he;
1) calls his brother a baby
2) pinches his brother
3) pushes his brother from behind
4) tries to tip his brother off his stool
5) yell at the nanny
457) act goofy
458) say “poo” as every third word
459) write the word “boobies” on the shopping list
460) throw food at his brother
Needless to say, he is our first child and sometimes I feel we are making an example of him, but we ruin his best day, a LOT.
