Sammy got his class picture today. Needless to say…Sammy can’t just take a normal picture and I found myself literally LOL-ing in the truck on the way home from school today.
See the look on his face? I thought it was from him trying to hold in a toot. Not so, according to Sammy. He said he was trying not to laugh, because if you look a little closer….ahh…did you see what he did there? Yes…he is wearing his Green Lantern ring in his 5th grade class picture.
You see, my kids aren’t normal kids. They don’t start liking something just because the movie is fixing to come out. They have liked Green Lantern for years, and this picture was taken a few months ago.
Sammy used some of his own hard-earned moolah to purchase said ring at Titan Comics in Dallas, Texas. (which is an AWESOME comic store, BTW, if you ever visit Dallas, you should totally go there.)
A few other things to note in this picture. Sammy is wearing white Converse All-Stars, just like the 10th Doctor wore throughout much of this time in the series, along with red ones, which Sammy also has. And you can’t see her, but the little girl on Sammy’s left, our right, is a huge fan of Doctor Who also. It’s hard to find Whovians in these parts, much less kids. Much less girl kids. Yeah, Sammy really thinks she is the bees knees.
Anyhow…I thought this was worth a laugh, and a blog post, so I hope you get as much of a chuckle out of it as I did, and still am!
