Is the Grass Always Greener?
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post called No Good Deed about my oldest son and a couple of his friends. I was bemoaning the fact that none of them seemed to have a lick of sense, and compared the knuckleheads to The Three Stooges.
After reading an article yesterday, I'm happy to report that I'm not quite so worried about them any more.
I've been imagining this scene over and over in my mind. This is how it's played out for me:
Enter The Three Stooges on acid. With Beavis and Butthead voices.
Hey, look at the picture of this chick in the newspaper!
Wow. She's hot!
Yeah, dude. She's really hot!
I'd do her!
Yeah, well I'd do her too!
Not if I did her first!!
Why don't we all do her?
Kewl, man! Let's all do her!!
Who's got the shovel?
Stop the music. Cue screeching car crash sound.
Yep. A shovel.
In Wisconsin, twin brothers Alexander and Nicholas Grunke, and Dustin Radke, all 20, were arrested in the act of digging up a corpse to have sex with.
Nicholas Grunke read an obituary complete with picture of a young woman who had tragically died in an accident a couple of weeks earlier.
He decided she was "the one", and enlisted the other two bird brains to help him.
Luckily they hadn't yet opened the crypt when they were apprehended.
Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
I'm off to hug my Big Kid now.
...And to thank my lucky stars.
