You're 9!!!


The Girl told me the other day that Billy Joe Armstrong is hot.  Doi!  I think to myself.  I totally agree.  And when I was a teenager, around the time of Green Day's Dookie album, I was in "love"...

Wait a minute!  When I was a teenager...  The Girl is 9!!!  She's not supposed to think Billy Joe is hot!  She's supposed to think he's a creepy old man that wears make-up!

"Billy Joe?!?!"  I asked her, completely puzzled.  "He's almost 40!" (Gasp!  Certainly not old in my book, but probably in my 9 year-old's) 

"So.", she says.  "He makes good music.  You know I love Green Day.  Besides, you always say age is only a number."  (Ahhhhh!!!  Since when does she listen to a word that comes out of my mouth!?!?!)

"Honey," I tell her, "Billy Joe has kids your age.  Don't you think that it's weird to think a dad of kids your age is hot?"


"The youngest is The Boy's age mom.  Their names are Joey and Jakob.  And they're cute too.  Like their dad.  Besides, I said he's hot, not that I want to marry him.  You think lots of guys are hot.  Why can't I?" (Because you're 9 and I'm 31!  That's why!")

Well, the kid knows her facts.  And like I always say, a healthy fantasy life is good for the soul.  And hey, The Girl's got good taste....  I just hope that when she's old enough to date, she finds boys that are more stable than the rock star type...  Hahahahaha...  Who am I kidding?

LOL @ "She's supposed to think he's a creepy old man that wears make-up!"

This is why the idea of a daughter scares me... she might be like me and like creepy old guys!
