So my dad calls me out of the blue the other day. It goes something like this:
HIM: Could you go to Amazon right now?
ME: Sure thing, dad. What’s up?
HIM: Do a search for “red wings hockey game.” Do you see the second item there?
ME: Yeah – the table game?
HIM: Do you think the kids would like that?
ME: (barely hiding my personal enthusiasm about this) Yeah, I think they would enjoy that.
HIM: Would you order that for me and have it shipped to you? I’d like to buy that for the kids. Don’t tell your mother about this.
ME: (now very excited) Sure thing, dad.
So today it arrives. I put it together as soon as it’s in the house. It’s pretty darn cool.
The best part? I tweeted this last week:
Norris Division for life.
