My Approval Rating Takes A Nosedive

So George W. Bush thinks he has approval ratings problems. My rating (among kids aged 7-9) took a serious bruising tonight as they walked in on me shaving, a PINK towel wrapped around myself, dancing around and singing to my music. My 7 year old boy was instantly appaled at my towel color of choice and my 9 year old daughter was disgusted with my music selection (it was Skinny Puppy's "Human Disease" that was playing at the time)....she just can't imagine that I could listen to anything other than Justin Timberlake. She asked what I was listening to and when I told her she just shook her head and left the room...will have to do some damage control tomorrow with ice cream and candy...LOL

ROFL. Funny scene. I'm imagining a guy with tattoos wearing a pink towel and...dancing! Well, there goes daddy's macho image. I think you probably scarred them for life. LOL. Thanks for the laugh. I think it's cute that your daughter thinks your listening to Justin Timberlake.

Inked,you are going to have to stop it with these visuals, I don't know how much more my old, hypertensive heart can take! First it was you in a sequined jumpsuit and now a pink towel; my heart is palpitating again! Ha! I know what you mean about losing 'approval ratings.' My teen son came home to me vacuuming and gyrating to ZZ Top's 'She's Got Legs' a few days ago. He quickly covered his eyes, screamed OMG, and then asked for some eyewash.

A PINK towel? I don't know, my friend, it may take a little more than some candy and ice cream to get your ratings back up to a respectable level. LOL! How about sweetening the deal by taking them to a movie this weekend? Anyway, thanks for a fun discussion.
