There are a few select relationships that seem they are meant to stand the test of time
However… even some unions, which were perceived to be the strongest, have been known to crumble
Unfortunately, at this point, I must announce that the imaginary bro-mance between Dickie and Justin Bieber seems to have run it’s course
I first blogged about Dickie’s unexpected adoration regarding the young singer back in June of 2010
You can read that entry HERE
It all began so innocently, I suspected that this was probably just one of Dickie’s many passing fads. Things that Dickie deems to be “cool” are usually forgotten within a week… when a new object of his affection takes center stage
But, this…. this was different. This didn’t seem to be going anywhere.
Dickie would absently wander throughout the hours of each day, quietly singing “Baby, Baby, Ohhhhh” If instigated, the singing would grow louder. Hubs would reprimand the crooning and attempted to declare our home to be a Bieber free zone.
But, Dickie wasn’t having it…
Due to his speech impedimentededed tongue, the simple word “Bieber” was not happening. He was then deemed “Justin Beaver”
Justin Beaver took over our lives. Dickie could make any topic somehow relate to Justin Beaver.
Every conversation with Dickie was sure to contain a Justin Beaver reference.
“Mom, me want hair like Justin Beaver” “You like Justin Beaver, Mom?” “Justin Beaver cool… all time” “The Beast think Justin Beaver a cool dude”
and he remained true to this obsession for almost a year…
It was almost like having a star-struck pre-teen girl in the house
In the past few months, Dickie’s vocabulary has surprisingly not included the words Justin or Beaver
I’m not sure what could have led to this fall-out, but I’m sure it must have been big.
Only once, in recent times, have I approached the topic of JB’s fall from grace.
When I inquired, to Dickie, about the status of him and the Biebs… the raw anger surrounding his answer took my breath away
“ME HATE JUSTIN BEAVER! IF ME EVER SEE JUSTIN BEAVER ME WILL KNIFE JUSTIN BEAVER… ALL TIME!”
“ME CAN SHUFFLE BETTER THAN JUSTIN BEAVER… JUSTIN BEAVER NO KNOW HOW TO SHUFFLE!”
“JUSTIN BEAVER NOT A COOL DUDE! ME COULD BEAT JUSTIN BEAVER AT TETHERBALL ALL THE DAYS!”
I’m pretty sure he spouted off some more… but I went into my happy place and didn’t quite catch the end of the rant.
So, Justin Bieber, I guess this is goodbye. You had a fairly decent run…. Obsession-wise, you didn’t last quite as long as the color orange however you did outlast the Tuff Puppies.
You probably shouldn’t try to “remain friends” seeing that Dickie apparently wants to “knife you”
…and don’t worry about my boy, he’ll be alright.
He’s got his hands full trying to juggle his new found love of BOTH LMFAO and Tetherball
