Scrappy’s new career

Scrappy: Hey, DaddyDog!

Me: What now, Scrappy?

Scrappy: I’m gonna be a pro wrestler.

Me: That’s just great. Do have any experience in wrestling?

Scrappy: Work? Hey, you’re forgetting when I wrestled that big dog. Uh, you know, Charlie.

Me: So you did. What are you doing to get ready? It’s hard work even if it is fake.

Scrappy: Wind sprints, baby! And it’s not fake.

Scrappy: And I’m practicing my ugly face.

Scrappy: And my tricks. “Playing with a possum” is my favorite because it’s just like napping.

Me. Okay, sounds good. You need a strong ring name. What are you calling yourself?

Scrappy: Huh?

Me: Dude, you can’t just be “Scrappy”. You have to have a name that people will remember. Maybe a scary name.

Scrappy: Oh. How about “Scrapper the Napper”?

Me: Uh, no. 

Scrappy: But I like taking naps.

Me. I know you do.

Scrappy: Okay, then how about “Scrapper Doodle Dandy”?

Me: You’re not a Doodle. And dandies do not inspire fear.

Scrappy: “Yapper Scrapper”?

Me: You just don’t get it.

  2. You realise that there is an upside to all this – if Scrappy becomes a Wrestler, he could earn a few shillings and that would help pay for food and board and a few extra goodies for everyone. It sort of works for me :o)

    1. I thought of that. We’ll see if he’s willing to share. We’ll see if I’m willing to drive him to the arena.

    1. He’s always thinking up harebrained schemes like that.

    Rob, this was so funny I was laughing out loud. Ever thought of writing a kids book about you and scrappy?

    1. I’d have to leave out the bad words. They all three swear like sailors. It can be embarrassing sometimes.
