Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

The following conversation took place between Hubby, The Mercenary, and me recently:

Hubby walks up behind the boy and grabs his hand. Being that everyone in this house has to be a tough guy, he squeezes.

The Mercenary
: squeals like a little girl Ow, ow, ow, that hurts!

Hubby and I: look at boy

Me: You know what both of your parents are thinking right now, don’t you?

TM: No….What?

Me: First, you sound pretty wimpy making that noise over a little hand squeeze. Second, we need to toughen you up. That means Dad will have to beat on you some more.

Hubby: Nods and grins at boy.

TM: Looks from me to his father.

Hubby: Squeezes TM’s hand again.

TM: (thinks for a minute, then says in a manly voice) That doesn’t hurt at all!

Okay, you’re next! Share a joke, blog post, video, or photo that makes you laugh (family friendly, please) with the world. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

Next week when I write the new FFYF post, I will go back and close the previous edition. At that time all legitimate links are converted to .html.

Links that are spam or inappropriate to the spirit of the game will be deleted. If you just link to a commercial web site, that’s not in the spirit of the game. Please link to something that makes you laugh. Or at least smile.
