Been reading my son the Paddington the Bear books. He likes them okay.
After we tuck him into bed – if he’s been good – and if he’s gotten ready for bed on time (instead of playing with Legos naked, talking to himself in the mirror for 30 minutes, or hiding in his closet reading a book in the dark) – I’ll tell him an “under-bed” story. (I just lie on the rug, I don’t actually go under his bed).
I make these stories up, and it would be a multi-part post to explain them thoroughly, so I’ll summarize by saying that 90% of them (if he had his way 100%, but sometimes I get bored) consist of Wario (with Waluigi, and a gang of rude, non-canonical farm animals), attacking the Princess (and Mario, Luigi, and the Toads.) Poop is almost always involved in these stories. A robot that shoots poop. A pit filled with poop. Etc. I’ve been telling these stories for 4 years now, and he’s shown no sign of becoming bored of them.
Tonight was one of the 10%. We’ve had Wario vs. Princess for 3 nights in a row (Attack of the Babies, Attack of the Giant Baby, and Attack of a Thousand Tiny Babies, if you must know).
So… Poopington the Bear. Mr. Brown (didn’t even have to change that name) was taking a dump in the subway station, (I can do a variety of great English accents. At least I think they’re good. Rex doesn’t know the difference), when a little paw reached under the stall and a voice said “GIVE ME TOILET PAPER”… I’ll leave the rest to your imagination, but Rex was thrilled with the first installment.
Came out of his room feeling pretty triumphant. Karena did not want to hear about Poopington the Bear because she was watching Dr. Who. So, much like the day-to-day intrigues of the gym, I’ll subject you folks instead.

Pretty pleased with this; could have made a run at a PR, but Emilio had to do cardio (Cardio? Cardio?!) and there were no other trustworthy spotters. Did all sets with suicide grip.
