ass kickin' chickens

Thursday, April 4, 2013

I've waxed philosophical in the past that Jack was born a Texan.  He will intrinsically know what happened at the Alamo, what "perfect" nachos are, and the difference between a good and a bad tortilla.  

And while that knowledge is great, I feel obliged to represent the Mid-Atlantic region in his upbringing.

I won't teach him to pronounce water as if it were spelled "wooder."

I will teach him to love DC and Philadelphia.  And to respect Baltimore.  (Charm City, if you come out of your crime tailspin, I will reevaluate.)

I will teach him to parallel park.  That shit is important.

And, I will teach him to respect the likes of the Maryland Terrapin and the Delaware Blue Hen.





See?  I've already started.

Thanks, Uncle James and Aunt Jenny!

Because it is cool to root for, as we say, an ass kickin' chicken.  From the First State.  You know?

Hope your day has some aggressive poultry in it.

Talk soon,
Heather

  1. Do people not parallel park in Texas? Consider my mind blown.

    1. No, they do, but a lot less. Since there is more space, there are more parking spaces that don't require it. It's a mental shift, for sure. :)
