It's an Unfortunate Thing When...
Okay, so enough with the sappy music and sentimental pictures. The Boy is awake now and I am over it.
Let's move on, shall we?
You know how growing up you always heard jokes that included an unfortunate name?
Like: Harry Balls or Sandy Beach?
Well, I think we have come across the topper. The following is TOTALLY TRUE.
My son started practicing Tae Kwon Do a few months ago. My husband takes him to the first class and comes home to tell me all about it.
CM: "The class seems great. The instructor is a younger guy, really good with the kids."
Me: "Cool. So, what's the cost commitment?"
CM: "Well, I spoke to the owner, Master Bates, and...(insert something here I didn't catch because my mind was exploding)."
Me: "Did you just say "Master Bates"?"
Me: HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER and TEARS.
CM: "It's really not that funny."
Me: "Yes. Yes, it is."
CM: "Maybe it is if you're a 12 year old boy."
Apparently I have the sense of humor a a pre-pubescent male. Who knew? Who cares?
All I am sayin' is of all the professions in all the world. This guy chooses the one that uses Master as a title. That is a kind of funny that comes along once (maybe twice if your lucky) in a lifetime.
BTW: Master Bates is a wonderful instructor and a great guy. With an unfortunate last name.
