My nephew is a really sweet kid

My brother-in-law Sandy sent me an e-mail today.  Which is unusual in itself since he is still mired in the Mesozoic era when it comes to computers.

Sandy is on a grandfatherly mission on behalf of his grandson Adam, i.e. the son of his son Tom, and my nephew-once removed.  That relationship, all by its lonesome, commands my immediate attention and your willing assistance.  Adam is a pretty special kid having progressed through all the stages you read about in the child-rearing books.  He fortunately now resides in the good kid phase of his development, much to the relief of his father Tom (my nephew-not removed).

This positive development did not come easily, especially given his father Tom’s turbulent childhood.  Tom, in addition to being a somewhat burly and difficult child, wore steel-toed boots in a purported effort to correct a mysterious foot malady.  The addition of these boots to his already menacing arsenal of flailing fists and strong teeth made him a bear to deal with.  I should point out that, since I myself was an angel of a child, dealing with Tom was for me a character building experience…made somewhat easier by moving from Chicago to California.

Tom benefitted greatly from my departure and prolonged absence from Chicago.  He, now an aging adult, turned out to be a heck of a guy.  I’m proud to introduce him to my friends without fear of retribution.  The removal of the steel-toed boots also helped.

In any event, here’s what you can do to enhance my stature with Sandy, Tom and Adam.  Go to the White House We The People website  by clicking on the link.  There you will find a petition to increase the minimum wage (not a bad thing in these difficult times.)

Sign it and I promise that Tom will never come to your house with his steel-toed boots.
