Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Do it again, Daddy! Do it again!

Thursday, July 14, 2005

It was another hot one today. With the pool water nice and warm, my
sweet wife even decided to hop in tonight. Son #1 and #2 were
apparently up quite late last night at their cousin’s house. “How
late did you guys stay up last night?” “I don’t know dad, there
wasn’t even a clock down there.” Yeah, right. Anyway, son #2 acted
pretty tired and cranky, and after dinner, son #1 even fell asleep.
So the 3 youngest boys and their parents played in the pool

Son #4 is starting to get his swimming lets (fins?). He’ll say,
“Watch this!” and go under the water for 3 or 4 seconds. He started
putting his hands on the top of my head trying to ‘dunk’ me. And
even ‘succeeded’ a few times. I tripped him up one time, and he
ended up under water and came up giggling. So I tripped him up a
few times more to see how far he wanted me to go. We were having a
good time, but my sweet wife was there picking him up half the
time. One time I ‘dunked’ him really good and he went way under. My
sweet wife went for him and I said, “Wait... don’t get him... wait
just a sec.” He came up screaming a banshee yell and said, “That
was a good one dad! Do it again!”

My sweet wife said, “So much for my motherly instincts...”

Enjoy today’s Jokes!
