Do you kiss your mother with that mouth…on October 15, 2011 at 8:49 am
I have never been one to question Dickie’s devotion to his Dad.
As I have written before, in Dickie’s eyes, Hubs can do no wrong.
The damned kid practically thanks him after he gets a spanking.
….and yes, we spank. Don’t hate or we’ll come whoop your ass too
Hubs has been the apple of Dickie’s eye, since our first night home from the hospital.
The admiration would have begun one day sooner, however the hospital where he was delivered wouldn’t allow Hubs to stay overnight….so for a few glorious hours, I was “The Man”
…and then we came home
Now, this pedestal upon which Hubs has been placed, was no accident.
No accident, at all.
It was the direct result of a very well thought out plan that was executed to perfection.
Good game, Hubs… Good game
I have lived amid this unfairness for the last 6… almost 7 years
When Hubs isn’t around, Dickie will turn his adoration towards me. He will declare me to be his Best Friend… and in Dickie’s world that is one of the highest honors that he can bestow upon you.
and it feels good.
that is, until he pulls me close and whispers in my ear…
“You not tell me Dad, ok?”
and I have to agree to not tell… and vow secrecy for all eternity.
If I don’t make this promise, I am instantly left with a child, running down the hallway… shrieking
“YOU NOT MY BEST FWIEND NO MORE!!!” “YOU LIIIIIIIIIE”
I promise, he loves me.
A little bit.
But, every once in a while a get a little bit of revenge
and Dickie will turn on Hubs… for a maximum of 3-5 minutes.
Those are my favorite times of the entire day.
Last week, Dickie accompanied Hubs to the races.
They’re like peas in a pod… no joke
As they returned from their pit, Hubs walked up to me dumbfounded.
It was at that exact moment when I heard the worst/best story of my life
Long story short….
Hubs dared piss off Sir Dickie
and Dickie yelled back
…excuse my son’s french
As horrible as this occurrence was, I couldn’t help but crack a smile.
and now when I see Dickie and Hubs, all hanging out in their pea pod and shit…
I just close my eyes and take myself back to that moment
…and I grin
