Note: I try. And most of the time I succeed. You see, I buy about half of his clothes and his dad (or his dad’s various relatives) buy the other half of his wardrobe. And usually, it’s not an issue. I mean, I am not a huge fan of the Kentucky Wildcats, but then again my grandparents gave him a white shirt with dolphins frolicking in the waves and “Mazatlan!” written boisterously in the corner. So it’s not like I have high ground to stand on. But he got off the bus today after being dropped off at school by his dad and came running at me dressed in this shirt. At first, I tried to pretend I wasn’t thinking what I was really thinking. But then I had this song inexpicably stuck in my head….

…that’s the sound of the men….working on the chain….ga-a-ang….that’s the sound of the men…working on the chain….gang…..

and I knew it was hopeless. Every time I looked at him, I pictured him with a pick ax along the side of a dusty road and the clink clink clink of hammers hitting rock.

I am a bad person.

Note2: I am SO SO SO very glad that his hair has grown back. *sigh*
