Mistaken Crustaceans And Fame

Connor: Dad, there's a piece of shrimp on my plate.
Me: (Looking down at my plate of braised steak, mashed potatoes and broccoli) But I didn't make any shrimp.
Connor: Look!
Me: Dude, that's your tooth.



Oh, and thanks to Becky at Steam me up, Kid I finally figured out why my follower numbers have been going crazy. Talking slowly and using lots of crayon drawings, Becky explained to me that I made it onto Blogger's Blogs of Note list. So a big thanks to Becky for her patience and to Blogger who looked at this out of shape, unemployed hack of a blogger who may or may not have shaved this morning and said, ya, this guy's a player.

  1. Oooo how much did the tooth fairy give him? Around my house it is £1 (or at least it will be when LaLa starts losing teeth)

  6. What kinda shrimp you got up there in Canada? I've seen alot of teeth in my day, and none of them looked like shrimp. Hmmmmf.

  7. This just goes to confirm my theory that shrimp are actually just live teeth. Arrrrrgh, my teeth are moving!

  8. Haha! Loosing teeth is such a riot. Punkette has plucked out 7 since last summer. I guess I should stop bustin her chops.

  9. A looong time ago, I told a bunch of kindergarteners standing in the lunch line: "your teeth come out because you've been kissing girls or boys. That's what happens." The entire group, at the same time, covered their mouths with their hands so not to let me see their toothlessness.

    I'm so mean. But it was cute.

  10. awesome! congrats on the B.O.N and little man's tooth. How much did that tooth cost ya? Teeth seem to be more expensive in this house than they were back in the day when she used to come visit me! Have a great weekend!

  14. So my little one has her first loose tooth. What is going rate for the Tooth Fairy?

    You are going big time ~ props to ya. Please don't forget the little people.

  15. So lucky it fell on his plate instead of being swallowed. I ate a tooth in the lunchroom in 3rd grade and still feel the pain- the monetary loss!

    ReplyDelete
  16. The fact that he is confusing shrimp and teeth is disturbingly hilarious! Ohh and the Tooth Fairy gets to bring pretty monies!! I wish we had pretty money...

    And congrats! That's something awesome!

  28. Dude, am I even aloud to comment here since you are such a celebrity now? Just kidding. Well, I guess I am only jealous in reality...

    Congrats for real.

    Shrimp for teeth. That's a Kodak moment. LOL.

    Okay, I am from Texas, but NOT a hick, but I fell a HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW coming on for ya.

    Congrats on the tooth and the recognition.

  30. Wooo Hoo a tooth! Note: Never let your child see Hellboy 2 before losing their first tooth. We've had a tough time getting James to believe that the tooth fairy leaves money and doesn't eat people.

    Congrats on being a blog of note. Don't forget us little folks

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yea, Connor! And Captain, you get to be the tooth fairy!

    And, seems to me Blogger was a little late to the party.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Think of all the stuff he can squirt through that hole now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow- I want to be a BON!!! How'd you do that???

    I LOVE the kid comment. This is exactly why I don't eat shrimp. You just never know what it really is...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm just blown away that your kid will eat broccoli.

    Congrats on the big numbers. We can say we knew you when.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I can only hope that your children get their teeth from their mothers side....our side...not so pretty!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Big congrats on the Blogs of Note - so deserved!

    Hey, what did your son get for his farm raised shrimp? That must have been one funky looking tooth to look like a shrimp.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Damn! Look at all those followers. Don't forget us little people on your meteoric rise to fame. Wow - I spelled meteoric right on the first try!

    Is that the first lost tooth? So cool.

    ReplyDelete
  38. blogs of note is a worth distinction, as your blog is just that.

    shaven or not, you are, indeed, a player, my friend. your posts always make me laugh. keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  39. don't eat that shrimp! :)

    blogs of note was also how i found this place & its certainly a deserved recognition

    ReplyDelete
  40. I actually found you on Harriett' blog. I think. Anyway, I have a feeling my son's first lost tooth will be a lot more dramatic and bloody than that.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ewwww! Shrimp!? Ewwww!!! I hope the tooth fairy treated him well. Congrats on being a blog of note. You deserve it 110%!!!

    ReplyDelete

  43. Congratulations!! My faughter lost her tooth yesterday, the third one.

    ReplyDelete
  44. -->Suggestion to your son, when asked what happened to his tooth he says he was playing hockey and headbutted the other player. It's actually funny in the States but...may be taken literally in Canada. ;-)

  50. D'oh, I noticed last week that you were on Blogs of Note. I didn't make the connection from what you were saying. I guess I've really got it going on, eh?

    So, how much you givin' the kid for that big shrimp?

    ReplyDelete
  51. What kind of shrimp do you eat that can be mistaken for a child's tooth? You need to prawn up, my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Congrats on the blog of note! How much does the Canadian toothfairy leave?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  54. WTH? :D
    I would really like to know how the tooth 'reached' the plate all by itself?

    Oh, and congrats on the 'Blog of Note', of course... :)
