Sunday Lunch..

The Wife and I decided to break from tradition, and go out for Sunday lunch.....we asked my Mother to come along......we decided to go to the local Mexican restaurant...the food there is really good, but I never like going to a Mexican restaurant on Sundays...local laws prohibit the sale of alcohol on Sunday...and, eating a burrito without chasing it with a Dos Equis is just wrong....anyway....when we go out to dinner or lunch, I normally drive....but not this time... my Mom had went out and bought herself a new car a few weeks ago....and she wanted ME to drive it......no problem, thinks I...

...as we begin to get in the car, she gets in the backseat.....and then, the WIFE wanders around to the other side of the car...and she gets in the back ...."Why the hell are both of you getting in the backseat?", I said.....and Mom pipes up and says...."oh, we thought we'd let you chauffer us around"....

....bloody Hell....this little trip is shaping up just dandy so far......so...here we go...finally setting off towards the promise of burritos galore sans beer.....I'm minding my own business, feeling like I'm driving Miss Daisy AND Miss Blossom...when I hear from the backseat...."Holy COW! Just LOOK at all that gray hair Eric's getting!!"....of course, this was quickly followed by..."Yeah!! Look! Just the way the light is hitting it? DANG! It's EVERYwhere!"...

.now...the fact that I'm getting some gray doesn't bother me...I don't care....hell, I've had my head shaved hundreds of times...no big deal....I don't even own a damn COMB, for goodness sake.....what DOES bother me is the fact that the two wimmin thought they could get a RISE out of me over something like that....after I didn't rise to the bait, an even CRAZIER remark was made.....something about "you know...they have hair coloring for men in EVERY shade from blonde to black....but, I've never seen a hair color for Redheaded Men..."

...so...I'd had enough...."You guys honestly think I'd EVER dye my hair?!?!.....I don't care if it all falls out OR turns gray...it's just hair...it ain't ME..."

...giggles of delight erupted in the backseat....they had managed to get me....they got TO me....dammit....I lost the battle...and I didn't even get to have a beer with my burrito afterwards...to ease the pain...

You know we all love you, right, Eric?
