Fingering the Culprit

It would appear that a broken collar bone has no impact on a young boy’s ability to act like a sassy ass. How do I know?

Because last Friday our local high school had its Homecoming game. That included a parade on Friday evening that the junior football teams (students in elementary and middle school) get to participate in. Late on a crisp Fall afternoon, the teams gathered behind the middle school to get ready to join the parade and march through the town’s main street to the high school:

Smalltown, USA (aka: Walkersville, MD)

I was set up on the parade route to capture pictures as the teams walked by. I was not at the middle school, but one of the other team moms was. She was helping organize the kids (good luck with that) and took some pictures. Of course, my kid can’t take a normal picture to save his class clown ass:

And the next picture explained:

Look close

Look close

Why my kid — in spite of his injury — had that impish grin on his face in the previous picture:

No, really. Focus on my kid.

No, really. Focus on my kid.

And as you zero in on Mr. Bad-Decisions-Mean-I-Will-Never-Get-an-iPhone, you’ll see it:

Collar bone busted, but both digitus medius working fine apparently.

Because OH MY GOD, THIS:

His collar bone is broken, but his digitus medius are working just fine, thank you.

F*CK!!!

So when it comes to determining who our son takes after —  me or my husband? Let’s just say I’ve fingered the culprit.
