Awkward Mom vs. Teaser Post

Or strong-arming post, if you will. 

OK, here is the deal. Sometime last Wednesday, Awkward Dad informs me that he wants to jet off to Milwaukee, entire family in tow, for a Brewers baseball game on Saturday night. (Awkward Uncle is a huge fan and lured him there, I am sure of it.) This involves unexpected hotel expenses, way too much eating out, 10-12 hours of driving over a 24 hour period, and nothing that I was planning for the weekend. It also involves Awkward Dad taking 2 preschoolers to a night game after a 6 hour car ride while I entertain 1 toddler in a hotel room with 3 Slim Jims, a pizza, and HBO. I debate this incredibly ill-advised plan for a couple days and then tell him, "Fine. On one condition."

On the condition that he blog about it upon our return.

He willingly agrees to that, only to try to weasel out of it on the way home. "Oh, it wasn't that interesting." "Oh, I doubt people will want to hear about it." "Oh, I can't write as well as you." Oh No, is what I say! You promised. You are guest blogging. And no far off day in the future, my friend. This week.

Side with me, Readers. Don't you want to hear more about this:

Am I right? 
I'm right. 
Awkward Gold right there.....

  3. Remind him that there is no Batman without Robin, no Han Solo without Chewbacca, and no Ripley without Aliens. (That last one might be a bit unflattering, I know, but apropos, nonetheless.) We readers do, on occasion, need to hear his voice and share his vantage. And yes, Erin, I am comparing you to Batman, Han Solo, and Ripley. ;-)

    1. HAHAHA! He is reading this over my shoulder and says "I am building dramatic suspense." He is actually reading a comic book and probably taking a nap. I love the comparisons! Thank you!
