You remember the drama behind my discovering my daughter’s tween friends like and are actively trying to date boys, right? Uh huh. Well, seeing as it’s a new year and all, I figured I’d just go on ahead and start 2011 off right by laying down the Denene Millner law on dating up in this piece. No need for words. I’m just getting ready. I figure the following tools should be sufficient:
- A rocking chair for the front porch
- An NRA card
- A rifle
- A shovel
- And a prime piece of quiet land way out in the woods
- Seven t-shirts with this list printed in neon letters (you know so Mari can wear one every day of the week)
For the record, Mari is NOT allowed to date. Unless it’s Jaden Smith. Maybe Justin Bieber. Maybe. And if either one of them showed up to our door talking about taking Miss Mari out on a date? Yup, they got this coming courtesy of the hubs, Nick, and our brother-in-law, James. You know, so er’body’s clear and whatnot.
(For those of you viewing this at work, you might want to turn the sound down now this scene, featuring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence acting the straight fool in Bad Boys II, is full of cusses. Much needed cusses.)
