With my sling of power and my infant of truth

Yesterday, my friend P. and I were taking our babies on a walk around the lake, like we do almost every Wednesday. As we rounded a curve in the walk, we saw a phalanx of four other mommies pushing their strollers coming towards us.

P: Hey, ladies, wanna rumble?

(Two of them look confused, two give us sort of nervous laughs.)

Me (snorting with laughter): Dude, those women think we’re nuts!

P: I know. But I figure we’ll never see them again. (Pause.) We totally could have taken them, though.

Me: Oh, yeah. Totally.
