Emails from Rex

Rex likes getting email from my parents. They write him long, thoughtful letters. He is pretty busy during the school week but on the weekend we have a conversation like this…

<>Rex: can i play video games?

Me: Why don’t you reply to your grandparents email?

Rex: aw… Do i have to?

Me: No.  i will tell them that you don’t love them and you don’t want any more presents and your name shall be stricken from the list of grandchildren and you can just do yard work and pushups instead.

Five minutes later Rex has written an email that looks something like this:

How are you?  I am fine*

What is 999999999+9999999?

Did you know that Edward III (13 November 1312 – 21 June 1377) was King of England from 25 January 1327 until his death; he is noted for his military success and for restoring royal authority after the disastrous and unorthodox reign of his father, Edward II?

Quincy spilled her milk at dinner and she cried. Coach Jr pooped his pants and said a bad word.

I forgot what my favorite food is.

The answer is i don’t know how.


I went to camp Smythe last week. I got to level two which is gold

Love, Rex

* he starts every letter like this – i think i taught him this when he was three – as a joke – and it has proven to be the most durable thing I’ve ever taught him)

Now he has to send all emails to me first for approval

I wish there was someone i could send these blog posts to for approval. They could show me to fix the font. Deal with it.

    • Hmm i don’t tend to cut and paste random facts, create pointless math problems, or tersely answer questions out of context. Although since you can’t tell the difference maybe i should start 😀 But i guess the Quincy and Rex paragraph was pretty close.
      Rex has read a half dozen or so posts. I occasionally show him ones that are about him and don’t contain foul language or booty pics etc.
      He’s working on a guest post at your urging. i caught a glimpse and it contains rude toilet humor

    • I don’t actually know but I’ll work on discovering the answer. I’ll post how to do it, so make sure you follow so you’re notified…XD

    • Okay I’ve got to install a plugin and i will probably do this tomorrow. As a reward for your patience, I will waive your enrollment fee.

  1. For a housewarming gift for the new blog, I bring you an actual* skrength PR from this morning (it’s the first I’ve had in years) – a seated press single with 100lb dumbbells. May it be a suitable tribute.

    Also, the new blog showed me 418.8, which made me smile.

    In the sense that I’d never tried anything heavier than 95s before, not in the sense that I’m actually stronger than I’ve ever been
