WILATU- #19. babies (especially my neice) laughing

I felt like crap today. I was washed over with a sudden and crushing depression. I had no worth as a human being. I held it together well enough to at least dial my brother's number. He immediately put me on speaker phone. And it wasn't long before I was entertained by a phonetic rendition of the ABC's followed by pure and joyous giggling. All was right with the universe again.

These photographs are a year old almost to the date. I am wearing my brother's Toledo Mud Hens hat while giving piggy-backs above. He is applying szlerberts below.

There must be something in the air; almost everyone I know had a bad day today.

I'm glad you feel better.

Lucidiocy said...

Aww,

She gives me babyitis.

Hey, and when you get down just remember--I like the way you think.

And that should cheer you right up, because I'm very important.

I love me some giggling babies. My niece makes me happier than just about anything.

Grant Miller said...

I never knew those were called szlerberts.

Thank you for the clarification.

How could anyone possibly be depressed on the eve of a visit by the one and only Pezda?

Except when they pee on you. But, then again, maybe it's not that I don't like babies. I guess I just don't like parents (of babies) who are too cheap to buy good leak-proof diapers.

it's fine when babies are laughing with you, but what about when they're laughing AT you? that really hurts...

FA: I feel bad again today.

T: Women only like me for my mind.

LB: Amen.

GM: Per Bill Cosby.

EP: Clinically depressed. Not caused by negative events, therefore positive events do not correct it.

PH: It's OK to not like babies. (Sicko.)

A: Babies can be so cruel sometimes.

Your niece sucks.

(in a good way, as I see in the photo)

Evil Genius said...

And my brother blows.

Um, EG, quit feigning modesty. You know it isn't _just_ your mind. In fact, your mind is as big a con as it is a pro, my dear. It's your rugged good looks and Cary Grant-like charm (really, gang, that's not sarcasm) and knight of the Table Round sense of chivalry and other things we won't discuss in this space that make women like you; the ones that do, anyway.

I knew what they were called, but I didn't know how to spell it. I always thought it was "zerber". Thanks.

EK: It is a Morrissey lyric (of course.) But thanks for the ego boost. I really needed it. As for the spelling of the word for raspberries blwon on a baby's stomach, I think it is subjective.

Evil Genius:

I thought I was the one who helped put you back in a good mood that day.

Evil Genius said...

AD: I will admit that it took more than baby laughter to put me back in a good mood. I had additional help from non-red-headed ex-girlfriend ego boosts. Muchos gracias, HBC.

EG:

Glad I could be of assistance.
