Overheard under The Big Top:
Daniel- I want to write a letter to Ellen.
Daniel- Can I give her a picture of me too; so that she’ll know it’s from me?
Mom- (with a little sarcasm) Do you want to autograph it too?
Daniel- YEAH! AWESOME!
This is what happens when your kid realizes he is like Internet famous. No, not viral or like a celebrity, but he knows he has fans thanks to mom’s blogging and the fact that he is pretty awesome. Does he imagine that Ellen reads Adventures in Juggling? I’m not going to ask.
So he sits down and autographs a picture of himself signing it: To Ellen, Love Daniel xoxo. And then he begins his letter telling her that he likes her…he likes her a lot. He loves her show. She is so so funny. She’s kind too. Oh, and he just loves her underwear….Can I have some of your underwear? he writes. Yes, he wrote that. He also offers that if they were to ever meet he would hug her because he loves her and because he is a pretty great hugger…a lot of people say that about me he adds.
Daniel- Can I ask her to give me a giant $10,000 gift card too?
We sure could use that like pretty much anyone else I know. Actually the IRS would LOVE it and definitely take it because that’s what they’re doing to us right now but…
Mom- No, son. You shouldn’t ask her for money. I think just telling her how much you like her is enough.
Daniel- I’m still asking her for underwear.
Mom- That’s fine, son.
