Dr. Seuss books, one take each

In celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday, my son filmed the following tomfoolery.

1. I look stupid. My face is stupid and my arms are fat and I slouch and bite my lip.
2. I sound really stupid. I have no idea why I read the title of On Beyond Zebra like some kind of fake cowgirl. I was getting tired.
3. The cats and kid were constantly trying to distract me. (Cat butts make periodic appearances -- see the first seconds of the bottom video.)
4 I used to be much better at this.
5. We had fun anyway.
6. Tell me how funny I am, rather than how my face and arms do too look fine. I'll only disagree with you otherwise.
7. No, you can tell me I look OK too. But really, I'd rather be fun. My son cracked up for half an hour straight, so I'll call it a win.

You definitely appear to be having a blast! And I don't think many people besides Charlie Sheen adore themselves on video. There is an excrutiating one of me somewhere, caught at a family event, blabbing away about moon snails, sounding like such a horrible know-it-all that I was ready to enter a witness protection program. Keep these--a great treasure for your son!

Ugh; I'm pretty sure there's plenty of material out there of me being a know-it-all as well. I feel your pain. Even in stills it comes through -- I know there's a series of photos of me somewhere from a social function, and my mouth is wide open (talking; apparently I didn't allow anyone else the same privilege) and I look painfully pompous. Oh well. Can't fault us for being passionate, right?

And I'd love to hear about moon snails!

I do think you're cool. The boys loved these videos. (And so did I.)
