They’re at it again.
I was just turning to take the kitchen trash out, when I saw a figure at the back door. It scared the bejeebies out of me, and I yelped…. not so much because there was a man at my back door, but because it was Caesar! Actually it was My Captain’s best friend Ty, who was holding Caesar’s bust.
I know that sounds dirty, but there really is nothing else to hold Caesar by, because that is all he is: a bust.
Kind of like my humor at this point: (A bust.)
And my latest attempt to eat healthy. (A bust)
And my New Year’s resolution to stop cussing like a sailor. (A total @#%$@%!!! bust)
Ty was grinning ear to ear as he walked in. Caesar was his normal stoic self. But Ty was just as happy as a little girl, giggling and snickering.
I have to tell you, there is nothing more charming than a tall, dark, and handsome fireman with the devil in his eyes, snickering as he embarks on a joke. There is also nothing more scary. Just so you know.
This was My Captain and Ty a couple of St. Patty’s days ago, doing some charity bartending. I can’t remember what group they were benefitting, and I don’t recall any of the women at the bar caring…why? Because they both rocked those impish grins, and were totally working the crowd, man. Two laughing, strapping fire captains serving liquor…if that didn’t boost our local economy, nothing would.
Well, Ty wore that same grin this time.
Today’s prank? He was just returning my Varmint’s latest Valentine prank. Remember Varmint dressed Caesar up like Cupid and left him on Ty and Maggie’s doorstep. We never heard a peep out of him about it, which was nerve wracking, I promise you.
I don’t even want to think about how long Ty spent on this.
I mean, between the bunny nose and ears, and the ever-so-perfect “C” for ‘CEASTER’….
You have to understand, this medal-recipient of a manly-man firefighting, paramedic hero has some DOPE artistic skills guys! Seriously. Not only does he put out hot, orange, singe-y things while balancing precariously on ladders,
he also plays guitar like some kind of modern day renaissance man,
studies other languages, is handy with construction, and tap-dances.
(I’m kidding about the tap-dancing. Not that I doubt he could do it…I’ve just never seen him.)
Even as we speak, he’s down in Guatemala, on a missions trip, building and fixing, and healing and all those wonderful things that makes Ty, Ty.
But before he left, he just had to drop Caesar off for Varmint.
Varmint walked in from softball practice, took one look at The Caester Bunny, and smirked. Then she just left the room.
Understand this, my child is plotting. And I have a feeling that Caesar won’t be sitting on our shoe rack for very long. And since she is 14, and is wicked smart and equally creative as Ty, I know retribution will be swift and hilarious.
And I don’t blame Ty for skipping the country at all.
But he’s got to come home sometime……
