I rebounded quickly from the interrupting incident. A few minutes later, one of my current favorite songs, LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," came on the TV.
The big thing in the song is when the one guy with the poofy big hair says, "Every day I'm shuff-a-lin" and then everyone dances and stuff. This is me shuffling.
I have a tendancy to interrupt mommy and daddy when they're talking. I do it all of the time.
So it should come as no surprise that the other day when mommy and daddy were talking, I interrupted them. Daddy scolded me for interrupting, and I went upstairs.
From there, I went into my playroom and got some paper. I drew the above pictures, put them in a UPS delivery box that was in mommy & daddy's room, and threw it down the stairs and said, "Delivery!"
Daddy opened the package and saw the above pictures. He and mommy started laughing hysterically, and I was laughing upstairs too, and said "It means no happy Pipers allowed!"
At the end of the theme, I always extend my arm out and bob my head.
Turns out the pose I strike is an Internet meme phenomenom called "draping," named after the lead character of the show, Don Draper.
So here's a series of pics of me quote unquote draping.
First, we went to Baylor University, where mommy went to school. We stayed at a motel that would best be described as "less than adequate" (pictured below, second pic). But we made the most of it. Mommy would like me to be a Baylor Bear. Daddy, however would like me to go to BYU because of their strict and enforced moral code. I'm like, Daddy, are you kidding me?
After visiting Waco, we went to the Texas Schoolbook Depository where JFK was shot. That was a little over my head.
I went to the Dallas Zoo too with mommy's friend Candace and her son.
All in all, we made lemonade out of lemons, as Auntie Karen would say.
Daddy finds it really funny to have me say famous TV and movie lines. This is the first in an on-going series called, "Piper Does The Classics."
Let's see if you can figure out what movie this is from...
The first night we went out was to the Springs Preserve. It was super crowded. I dressed up like Foofa, and as you can tell by the last photo below, it pooped me out.
Then two days later (or as I call it, not tomorrow but "the other morrow"), on Halloween Halloween, I decided I wanted to dress up as a strawberry. Why not, you know? We went trick or treating in our neighborhood. Turns out there are about 50 couples in the neighborhood with kids around my age. We had no idea! Where have they all been the past 5 years?!
I mostly hung with my friend Sophia (pictured left background above). She keeps her room much cleaner than I keep mine. Mommy and daddy are known to mention this to me a lot.
We shared a cabin with Jay and Marissa and their sweet little baby Alesia. We hiked and looked at the canyon (it was really big) and played board games and grilled out and killed terrorists.
Ok maybe we didn't play any board games.
I can't wait to go back. It's one of the seven wonders of the world. I'm seriously.
I REALLY got into tennis recently. As daddy says, I've "got a sweet lefty stroke."
I hope one day to grow up to be the next Jennifer Capriotti, minus the drugs and stuff. Speaking of Capriotti's, I could sure go for their Bobby sandwich right now.
Apologies for how long it's been since I last posted. I'd like to make a few excuses, but really, there aren't any.
I'm going to pre-date a number of posts and try to catch up the bestest that I can. I hope over the next week to cover ALL the ground that I missed the past errrrr eight months.
It was my most favorite party of all time. Uncle Brian and Colin came. So did Erika and Kristen and Laura. Of course, Rider came too.
We played in the ocean and in the sand and I had birthday cake too.
Afterwards, mommy and daddy let me have a little more cake inside because it was too windy to light the candles outside and I really wanted to blow candles out so I did.
