What would you do?

I went through the pictures last night, and after a brief discussion with Mom about why our 9, 8, 5 and 2 year olds should or should not be allowed to watch CSI (not Miami or New York, but the original) I decided to retire the TV shows in favor of a family activity that involved the TV. Well, what would you do? So I pulled out the camera, hooked it up to the TV and we had a "stereophonic, multimedia" event in our living room.

Quick question. What does a two year old do when presented with a camera pointed at her that is just about on her level? Well, what would you do...

Yeah, me too. Although I would probably smile for the camera or something. Oh wait, she did...

That's better. And her nose is clear too. Who could ask for anything more?

Another question. What if you just turned five and mom and dad gave you a chocolate cupcake for your birthday? What about chocolate pudding. Well, what would you do...


Now suppose you were about three months old. And let's say that it was a little chilly outside. And let's say that your Mom just wrapped you up in some warm clothes and held you closely to her ever-loving, food-bearing breasts. Wouldn't you be happy? Well, what would you do...


Of course, if you were three months old, and your diaper was not dirty and your belly was full and you were a boy and you had four loving sisters that wanted you as their number one dolly and you had a Dad with an overactive photographic trigger finger, you might be in a good mood. You might even smile. If not, what would you do...


And lastly, if you were a great big enormous ghastly looking spider, and you had two huge nasty funky humps on your back and you had these like funky white and red legs and nasty hairy knuckles and you wanted to make a web, wouldn't you make it in my back yard where four of my five kids could easily walk into your web and cause you to go straight Oscar De La Hoya on them with those funky mean looking fangs? And if you were a dad, with a camera and some pretty excited kids, wouldn't you want to cherish the moment your kids called you over to see this behemoth freak of nature hanging in the middle of the air from your crepe myrtle tree? Well, what would you do...


Yeah, yeah, normally I would kill it too. But this thing was so gnarly looking I had to marvel at it's sheer nastiness and permanently record it's wicked existence. Here's another...


And that's all for now. I have a few cool ones for a later post. If I forget, ask me for pictures of the Hibicus Flobbicus and the Porcufunny.

Or you can just keep staring at that spider. Man that dude is amazing...
