    Default The GREAT STROLLER THROW-DOWN 2012

    Shall we start taking bets?

    We have Mel, experience mom, experience park goer. Not only has she lugged kids to and from parks, she's packed and moved homes at a moment's notice thanks to the military's whims. She's experienced, mentally focused and has an affinity for her passenger, Duffy.

    Ian is an experienced father of something like 18 kids. We suspect he's Amish. He's had more recent experience trying to negotiate a stroller filled with twins and his pin books around the theme parks. He has two recen stroller graduates. He has no love for Duffy and may, in fact, sabogage his own chances to merely hurt Duffy.

    I'd say it's evenly matched. If it had been after the Tequila meet we may be looking at a different outcome. But right now I wouldn't say there's an odds on favorite.

    It's still two months out. Mel could twist her ankle if she sees someone she thinks looks like Chipper Jones. Ian could rupture a blood vessel because his favorite radio station won't stop playing "Someone I Used to Know."

    Who will be the victor? Mom or Dad? Sweet, kind Mel or snarky, mean Ian (Mel, I expect payment for that.) Will the previous night's sleep play into it? What's a better pre-game meal? Juice mixed with beer or angry liquor chased down with copious amounts of cheese and various dips?

    You be the judge. Place your bets.*

    *No money will be collected. No one will remember if you call the outcome. No money is tied to this bet. You may be awarded bragging rights under the condition that both Mel and Ian agree on a fair outcome. So, you know, you probably won't be awarded bragging rights.

    EDITED TO ADD: Was I drunk when I typed this? I just reread it and some of the typos are frightening. And, yet, I refuse to edit it because words like "sabogage" are funny.

    I'll throw it to you and we'll call it a day, sound good? I'll even buy you a beer celebrating your win.

    Seriously, Ian has waaaay more stroller experience than I do. That's a fact.

    And, he's Amish.

    Wow. Why didn't anyone tell me that half of my brain checked out while I was typing that? I'm not editing it though. It looks like one of my hands was typing a different message than the other.

    Sorry Mel, but the vision of Ian trying to get Duffy with his stroller seems like a man on a mission. Going to have to go Team Ian on this.

    I'm going to be Ian's trainer for this. I want to be the Mickey to his Rocky. I refuse to let him lay down and let Mel win.

    Better check those Duffy bears to make sure none of the stuffing has been pulled out to reduce weight.

    My money's on Ian (sorry Mel.) He was upset about the whole stroller parking thing so I think that'll speed him up.

    I don't think Ian's going to be able to get out of this. His people want him.

    Post Special Ticket?

    I have a question.
    Is this a special ticketed event and what number do I call to get tickets if it is?

    Gotta go with our girl Mel! Sure, Duffy is cute, but if we dangle a new Dooney at the end of a stick it's pretty much guaranteed she will win. But for sure you can't chicken out, Ian. You will never hear the end of it.

    Please tell me there will be video!!!!

    My money's on Ian only for the fact that east coasters seem to walk/run at remarkable speeds.
