A Note on Buzzing Bees

Touchdown has a new best friend. She calls it a bee, but most of us know it as a common house fly. It is her best friend and tonight it is having a sleepover with Touchdown. Normally, a little creativity and imagination are a wonderful thing, but when the three-year-old gets hysterical when the Wife brushes the fly away from the dining table, I have to draw a line.

Now I didn't do anything too drastic. I could have gotten the flyswatter and been big, mean Daddy, but instead I just let the Wife handle things as she explained that the fly would probably be back following the brushing away but that Mommy wanted the "bee" to go back to her family and see her mommy and daddy. That seemed to placate Touchdown to some extent.

So, all those years as a bachelor, I was just hosting sleepovers for lonely "bees". Dirty bathrooms will encourage that, you know.

Well, with the King...Working... and the queen is in her office all day. Little touchdown has formed an alliance with the flies, just to have someone to talk to. Working parents is a real tough dilema for me. I just want the King and The Queen to know that when she turns 14, and she forms strange alliances, they can look back on this as possible the start of weird and strange things.. Touchdown, hang in there, grandpa is on his way.....

You forgot to mention that she blessed the fly during her prayer, and she left him some dinner of Sweet Tarts. It is so nice she has found a playmate, she is finally leaving Indy alone.
