Teeth Marks and Laughter

I want to thank all of you for all of the lovely birthday comments yesterday, I appreciate it. And of course…

Thanks one helluva lot for the pizza, Pizza Bill. It was fucking incredible as always.

I can’t believe you and your wife are so nice to me when I berate you so…Of course, since I screwed up Sunday, I have to cease that for awhile, dammit.

I’m sure Drive-By Mikey will have fun with this one after he’s finished giving me wrath of shit. Oy Vay!!

Anyhoo…Thanks Bill and thanks all y’all.

My brother Marty once again showered me with brotherly affection. He gave me a gift certificate to a local fave pizza place and a beautimous bottle of wine…

Damn right, Bitches…Gnarly Head Wine. Thank ya Marty-Boy!!

My son and his mom stopped by briefly on their way home from Cleveland where they watched Lebron James score 47 points as the Cavs defeated the Knicks Saturday night.

They gave me a new beard trimmer, because mine recently bit the dust. I dig it so, but…there was more. Ryno made a birthday card while they had lunch at Chipotle’s…

(click to enlarge)

Yeah, he drew my birthday card on a Chipotle napkin, and presented it to me at work. What a guy.

In addition to all of that, they brought me a big coffee and two double cheeseburgers from Micky D’s. Oddly, one of the double cheeseburgers looked like this when I opened the bag...

Yeah, Ryno left me some teeth marks and slobber on one of the burgers. What more could a dad ask for from their son?

Even though I wasn’t there when he did it, I can hear him laughing as he did.

And that, is the best present that I could ever hope for.

Happy Monday all, and here’s to the New Orleans Saints. There’s nothing like a good underdog story where the underdog pulls it out.

Cheers!!

Glad you had a nice birthday. And I see the poet gene has been passed down, lol.

Jay said...

The handmade card is pretty cool. But, taking a bite out of your double cheeseburger? Classic. haha

Jim said...

Who Dat!! Who Dat!!
Who Dat!! Who Dat!!
Who Dat!! Who Dat!!

Mike said...

Jay noticed it was a double cheeseburger right away. I had to go back and look. I'm going to have to get better at identifying them by ordering more of them. Maybe 2 and 3 at a time.

Lady: He's a keeper. Other than my fuck up at work, it was a pretty damn good day. Oh...Your site is coming up discombulated when I get on it. I don't know if it's on my end or yours. Just a head's up there buddy. Cheers D!!

Jay: Ha. A couple of weeks ago they brought me coffee and two hot dogs. Well, when I got it, it was a cup of coffee and a hot dog and a half. He's a funny man.

Matt-Man said...

Jim: Here's to dem Saints. Cheers Jim!!

Mike: Ha...they're damn good, and at 99 cents a piece how can ya top that? Cheers Mike!!

It was doing that to me yesterday, I don't know what the deal is... only when I use Internet Explorer, though. When I use Firefox it is just fine. I don't know how to correct it...

Matt-Man said...

Lady: Yeah, I use IE as well so it must have a hang up with that. I have no idea what to tell you. It worked fine for me up until the last couple of days. Cheers D!!

I just checked w/ Blogger help group and I guess it's a common thing now and Blogger hasn't come up with a solution yet. That sucks. Thanks for letting me know, I thought it was just my computer.

Tug said...

Ryno totally rocks the birthday cards & gifts. ;-) Happy Birthday Matt!

Jeff B said...

Now that boy knows how to deliver a joke! Well done Ryno, well done indeed.

The Covert Lover said...

Way to go Ryno!
I especially love the card. And the amazing caricature even though it took me a few minutes to realize who it made me think of - Bryan Griffin on Family Guy.

Happy Late Birthday! :)

Scott Oglesby said...

The Covert Lover is totally right, that does look like Bryan. I’m sure you drag your ass across the floor quite often as well.

I’m slightly disappointed by where the ‘teeth marks’ led….I had higher hopes for you when I read that;( Love the card though, he really does care!

And I’d love to hear about the screw up. As you know from my own past woes; there’s not a funnier tale than a screw up tale.

...Man Bites Dog!...I mean, Dog Bites Boy!...I mean, Boy Bites Dog (and Burger!)...And leaves Card!!...

Karen said...

Ryno is the cutest!

Micky-T said...

The Rad Dad.....

Dana said...

I'm looking at that card and thinking you might need to hire Ryno to fill in the Inky and Lola gap!

Matt-Man said...

Lady: Glad I could help. Now if only Blogger would. Cheers D!!

Tug: Thank ya, Tug. He's a good kid...most of the time. Cheers!!

Jeff: He has a keen sense of humor and the boy can light up a room. Cheers Jeff!!

Matt-Man said...

Covert: Ha. I thought the same thing. Thanks for the B-Day wishes. Cheers Lover!!

Scott: Nothing amusing in my screw up. I nearly always have a perfect drawer at the end of the day and have for two years. And then, on my birthday of all days. I think I gave a guy change for a 20 and I think it was only a 10. Damn...I'm no longer perfect. Cheers Scott!!

Matt-Man said...

Phfrankie: Ha. The bag that he gave me that contained the burgers also contained all of the trash from what he ate. Ha. Cheers P-Man!!

Karen: Awww. Why thank ya Karen. I was half responsible for him. Cheers Karen!!

Micky: And don't you forget it, Bitch. Cheers Mick!!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: As soon as he is allowed to read my site I'll have him do just that. I don't feel like corrupting him TOO much just yet. Cheers Dana!!

Michele said...

Sounds like you had a nice b-day. JR did too. Now, it's on to valentines day.

Matt-Man said...

Michele: Oh Holy Cow, that's right. HIs was Saturday wasn't it/ My apologies for not wishing him a Happy B-Day. Tell him I hope he had a big plate of meat and Happy Belated B-Day. Cheers Michele!!

bobbybegood1 said...

First response by Lady took the words right out of my mouth. Ahhhh, ain't he just the little poet.

Yeah, ah, um that Cavs vs Knicks stab -- um, was that for me? Although I am a New Yorker -- I HATE THE KNICKS WITH A PASSION!!! THEY SUCK!! I stopped being a Knicks fan even before Ewing left. I had heard that Labron was coming to NY. That would be the only possible reason for me to even think about being a Knick fan again. Cheers Matt!!

Matt-Man said...

Bobby: He's a little something, alright. And no...that wasn't a jab at you. The game was actually relatively close despite LJ's 47 points. I'm not a big NBA fan, but I follow it because of my hot shot basketball player son. Cheers BBG!!

Dianne said...

I love the card!! Ryno got skills

and how sweet of him to pre-chew your burger
that kid is gonna be a god send to you in your feeble years

Matt-Man said...

Dianne: The chewing part may be of help in the near future let alone my feeble years. Cheers Di!!

Michele said...

He spent his birthday with a big plate of meat, a couple of drinks and some b-day nookie. All the way around a good day for him.

Four Dinners said...

Any son who buys you a burger is a son to cherish!

Happy Birthday old bean.

I would have said it yesterday but at my age you try to forget they're coming around again!!!

Anon seems to want you to celebrate in Vegas...but WTF 'culmination the all reborn' means is beyond me...as most things are..;-)

Matt-Man said...

Michele: Ahhhhhh. He's the man. Cheers Michele!!

Four: You're damn right, and I completely understand your forced frogetfulness. Cheers and Thanks FD!!
