Hi! Hello! Hi!


Hi! Hello! Hi!, originally uploaded by Shannon K.

Last Saturday The Phi and I were out in the front yard washing the car. Well, I was washing to car and she was playing. While we were out there a young boy kept whizzing by us on his skateboard. He must have passed by like 15 times and everytime he would come by The Phi would drop what ever she was doing and wave frantically at him yelling "hi!". Adorable. Well this kid ignored her, every single time. It broke my heart. This precious little girl in pig tails is waving to you how could you not smile and wave back! Everytime he ignored her the urge to grab him and yell, "hey you little shit, that little girl is waving to you, get your head out of your ass and wave back asshole" just grew and grew. But I didn't. (When I told PR Dad the story he too wanted to kick some pre-teen ass!) Finally my heart couldn't take it anymore and I went over to The Phi. I told her that she was a great kid and a very very nice person for waving and saying hi to that kid. I hugged her and kissed her and inside I knew that I will not be able to sheld her from getting her feelings hurt by mean kids.

  4. you shoulda thrown a rock under the wheels of his skateboard.

    of course your actual response was a bit more adult and probably a better role model.

    (still, maybe when the phi's back was turned...)
