Overheard just now:

Zan: My Dad knows more about baseball than anybody. He knows balls and strikes and everything.

Friend: Oh yeah? Well, my Dad knows Terry Francona and all the Red Sox.

Zan: Yeah, well, do you know about concerts? After concerts, my Dad gets to go backstage.

    K so I discovered the Pioneer Woman, thanks to your blogroll, on what should be one of my most productive workdays in video-editing history.

    Read: ob-SESSED! (using my opera voice)

    Hysterical! My fav part is “do you know about concerts?” — the other kid probably thinks you have backstage access to Sesame Street Live.

    I had a conversation like that when I was a kid. “Oh yeah, well MY dad played backup harmonica for Eric Clapton!” Except the other kid didn’t know who Clapton is, so I changed my retort to “Okay well I know who Eric Clapton is!”

    And my sister told her friend after Dad fixed the roller skate, “See? Didn’t I tell you my Dad was a genius?” Doncha just love it when parent wins?

    You will always win like that. Always. Take it from Bossy and her backstage ass.

    This would absolutely THRILL my youngest son! He’ll be a college freshman this fall and is planning on majoring in journalism. His goal? To write for music magazines, such as Rolling Stone.

    Personally, I think he just wants backstage passes to concerts.

    He’s going to see Def Leppard, Poison, and Cheap Trick tonight.
