Bob & Cathie's Opinions

Bob: Son, why did you cut your hair like that?

Cathie: Are you acting out because of depression?

Eli: Why do you guys always assume I'm depressed?

Cathie: Because of your life.

Bob: And because you always seem to be acting out.

Eli: Guys, I'm not depressed. I'm happy.

Bob: You are? Why? Are you taking drugs?

Cathie: ARE YOU?!

Eli: I'm not taking drugs.

Cathie: AND HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT DRUGS ARE, YOUNG MAN?!

Eli: How do YOU know what drugs are?

Cathie: I don't. I've just heard that word before.

Bob: So you're not depressed? Are you looking for attention? Is that why you cut your hair like that?

Eli: No, I'm not looking for attention.

Bob and Cathie: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Eli: I mean with this. I'm not looking for attention with this. Ok?

Bob: Have you been keeping contacts with other law firms in case you get fired?

Eli: Why do you guys always assume I'm on the verge of getting fired? You know I've never been fired from a job before, right?

Cathie: That's because your father and I are very good parents.

Bob: VERY good parents.

Eli: It's amazing how you two are able to turn every conversation into this.

  1. I can totally picture what your family road trips were like when you were a kid, and the mental image warms the cockles of my non-existent heart. You need to periodically ask readers to submit requests for advice from your parents and video tape their answers. They'd be awesome agony aunts.

  2. I know we've seen pictures of the gorgeous and beautiful Cathie. But have we ever seen a picture of the handsome and debonair man we know as Bob? I think I'd like to see a picture of Bob to go with my stories. Preferrably a picture of Bob and Cathie together. Make it so. (Please.) ((You're so pretty today.))

    3. Just reread that post from 2 years ago. Even then your parents were wondering if you were depressed! Don't worry Eli, your hair will grow out to its beautiful shape again soon, but Bob and Cathy shall be the same forever!

    4. "kjax` you replied to that post.......should we be concerned?"

      Possibly. On the other hand, I'm not real sure what happened yesterday either, so this is nothing new. But I do appreciate your concern all the same. If you don't hear from me in a few days, please check in again. I may have wandered off in search of applesauce or something.

  5. Are you on the verge of getting fired? Because that would totally explain the depression.

  6. I am new to your blog and stumbled across it via Pinterest with the Snuggie/Jane texts; HILARIOUS. I am reading your older posts to catch up and have been HAPPIER THAN A PIG IN MUD! Laughter is much needed. I'm glad I've found your blog!
    P.S. The comments are a bonus, too; I love Lee!

  7. Back then Bob and Cathie seemed to think Daniel could help you. Where the heck is Daniel now? You need a Daniel intervention. It's like he was written off the show with no explination!

    And where is Lee's input here?

    2. Unfortunately I'm back from nice warm Mexico. Stupid CANADIAN WINTER!!!!

      Seriously...the haircut Eli...sigh...(whispers to everyone) makes me wonder if it's drugs or depression.

      It's a good thing you have such wonderful parents and friends to support you during this low time. Maybe just shave your head at this point?

    3. Welcome back! I'm across the bridge from ya; MICHIGAN WINTER!!!!!!!!

  8. But really, why did you get that hair cut? When you're young you might try something different but at your age, no excuse. Did you fall a sleep in the chair? Give it a couple weeks and then remember not to do it again. Your poor Mom and Dad, I bet they thought they were through this kind of stuff. Just messing with you. You have a right to look as goofy as you want, LOL. But having said all that, it was a bad hair cut.
