The Adventures of F-Man, and D-minus Boy
Today I watched my first born drive away to college without a glance in his rear view mirror...which is just as well as who wants to see their mom crying and chasing his car down the street "come back child, come back!" OK, I didn't do that, but only because my son warned me not to...It's not the whole "he's leaving and never coming back..." It's more what his leaving represents...change...the genie's out of the bottle now and there's no sense trying to put the cork back on...especially if it's a fine bottle of merlot...but it got me thinking of how fast time roars by...just five years ago my son and beloved stepson were in a different phase of their life...as future action figures I named...F-man, and D-minus boy;
I got my kids report cards today. To say I'm pissed is putting it mildly...my stepson informed me that he doesn't have time to study and get good grades because "he's not going to be young forever and he doesn't want to waste his youth." That's right...that's what he said. Since grounding my kid's isn't one of my options...because I'd be the one stuck at home making sure they don't try sneak out of the house...and honestly, with grades like these I'm gonna be stuck at home with them for the next 20 years anyway...So, instead of getting upset I have decided instead to think of them as:
Future...SUPER Heroes! ...and i'm going to call them and their story;
THE ADVENTURES OF... F MAN AND D MINUS BOY!
I am still working out the meat of the story, but here's a cliff notes version of my future super heroes...
My son's are a couple of action figures who soar through the air trying to fight crime and save the world...BUT, with a unique perspective tailored to their specific, um...failure to thrive lifestyles...for instance... in episode one, the dynamic duo is relaxing at home with a lot of time on their hands (since they're skipping school) when suddenly they hear a victim screaming for help as he slowly sinks in quicksand "Help me help me" he screams..."oh wait, it's you, F man and D minus boy...um, never mind...i'll save myself."
