Not exactly gentle persuasion...

The other night, I took Mini-Me with me to a launching of a business. A friend makes jewelry and we were going to have a party and celebrate her going into business.

Jewelry.
Women.
Jewelry.

J-man saw us getting ready and found out where we were going and told us that he wanted to go, too.

He was sure of it.

We pointed out that there would be jewelry. Women. and no kids to play with.

He was just certain he had to go. Not certain enough to stop playing Lego Star Wars - he wanted to finish the level.

Really, you don't want to go. It's girly.

No -- he intoned -- I'll be doomed if I don't go.

I admit it.

I laughed.

He still didn't go.

Lego Star Wars, jewelry, Lego Star Wars, jewelry...I can understand his dilemma.

Thank you for your comment and your mental hugs! I'm really grateful to have such a sweet friend in you!

Peace and Laughter,
Cristina

doomed your own son, LOL. Poor kid.

I liked the link you left me... especially the one about carry your own thing... I could use some of those reminder signs everywhere my family goes. :D

That is too funny! I hope he understands one day, that you didn't really want him to be doomed and it was for his own good.

Did you bring him back a nice medallion? A superman one would have been cute.

So? What did you get? Show us please.

Sounds like no place for boys but quite exciting for you girls. Good on your friend. I like to hear of successful small businesses being launched and hope you both bought something good.
Blessings,
