Kids are always watching and listening. I repeat, kids are ALWAYS watching and listening. Even when we think they’re completely enthralled with their cartoons or toys, they’re constantly keeping tabs. When they act like terror on two tiny legs, we really only have ourselves to blame. Case in point, this little girl who decided to take notes of her dad’s meltdown during the Super Bowl. It’s not all that dissimilar from mine, perhaps with the addition of excessive vulgarity and copious amounts of beer.
Her notes pick up at the beginning of the second half, when things really began to get interesting. Also known as when Falcons fans began to question whether Tom Brady is human.
Notice the date at the top of the page. How many times has daughter felt the need to chronicle dad’s behavior? Anyway, here is the what the itinerary says:
“8:10 Half Time Falcons 21 Patriots 3
8:15 Lady Gaga comes in”
(Editors note: This is exactly what the second half is going to be like for this dad.)
“Football starts again at 8:40
Dad screams 8:49
Dad screams 8:51
Dad screams again 8:51
Dad screams 8:52
Dad laughs 8:52
Dad screams and startles me 8:54
Dad jumps 8:55
Weird commercial 8:56”
I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess this is Mr. Clean’s doing.
And I’m sure we can all guess who dad was rooting for based on the following sequence:
“Dad fights with Dog 9:21
Dad does his evil laugh 9:23
Dad screams 9:29
Dad is the happiest person 9:49
Dad cries 10:30”
