Me: Should I try to get us a field for baseball practice on Saturday afternoon since our last two got rained out?
Prince: We can't do it Saturday afternoon. I'm pulling a jet.
Prince: I'm pulling a jet.
Me: *puzzled look on my face*
Prince: I'm going to be part of a team that pulls a Southwest jet on their inaugural flight into *town we live near* Each county has put together a team and I was asked to be on our county's team.
Me: You're stupid. You are not actually doing that.
Prince: Yes, I am.
Me: No, you're not.
Prince: Why do you think I went and got the cortisone shot and the fluid drained off my knee
Me: That's EXACTLY why you shouldn't PULL A JET!!!
Prince: But how many chances do you have to do something like this? I'll get to check something off my bucket list.
Me: You had no idea this was even a bucket list option!
Prince: I'm doing it.
Me: You're stupid.
Heir to the throne: Mommy, you're not supposed to call people stupid.
Me: You can if it's true, son.
First Southwest flight to land *here*
Here comes the 83,000 lb plane!
The "A" Team...otherwise known as the Band of Idiots...getting set to pull the 737.
They won the first round! On to the second...
A local 1-AA College Offensive and Defensive Line getting ready to pull.
Against NCAA regulations? (Kidding....it wasn't!)
Pull #2 for the "A" Team
That's the Prince in the front with the black hat.
Even with my baby as the anchor, they just couldn't beat the young guns.
But a second place trophy isn't too shabby for a bunch of geezers!
And for your viewing pleasure.......
And yes, they almost ran into the crowd and through the fence. I guess once they got the locomotive started, it was just too hard to stop it.
So here we have it....marked off the bucket list. Now I have to go call our insurance company and see if "Stupidity" is a covered diagnosis.
