This post is (mostly) a photo series featuring my 7-year-old nephew, Timmy. His mother would like me to include this disclaimer:
Timmy is an active, normal kid who rides his bike, plays in the dirt, annoys the dog, and eats his vegetables.
But he’s also being prepared for an adulthood that involves responding to emails while crossing a busy downtown street. You’ve seen ’em…The Crackberry People. They use their Blackberry phones as if emails and texting are a life and death matter.
Here’s Timmy with his Game Boy…I don’t see much difference.
I suppose I should mention that I’m still visiting my family in Alaska.
|Here he is at a hamburger joint…|
|In the car…|
|Lunch in the diner…|
|At his mom’s hair salon during my cut and color…|
|And during last night’s sushi dinner.
In twenty years he will have replaced the Game Boy with something that has a QWERTY keyboard…I only hope it’s as much fun as killing bad guys.
I’m making fun of the whole thing here, but I have to say: Wow. It’s EASY to take this kid out to dinner.
|On a different note…
If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating sushi made from fish that was caught that day and delivered from docks one block from the restaurant, might I suggest it? Mindblowingly delish.
|Mandatory doggie photo: 10-month-old Izabelle. She is my first terrier experience. I’ve never met such a tenacious animal.
Sweet, but stubborn.
