In which we learn that Thing Two has MAD skillz

Here we see the younger of the Things taking a moment from eating his dinner to display a newly mastered and obviously important and difficult skill.
Don't be jealous, if you work really hard you too could be this good.
Though you may never be this cute, sorry, that's just the way it goes,
deal with it.

I think we'll be seeing him in Hollywood.

Ok that does it, no more hanging out with Auntie Lime! Bad influence!

Next ya know, he'll be curling his tongue!

I'm ready to take on Thing Two in spoon balancing -- not in cuteness. As you say, he has a lock on that. But the spoon part, do not underestimate my abilities in this arena. Or do so at your own peril.

Bring him on!

Seamus said...

What!!???? You mean even if I work diligently I can never reach the lofty cutness of Two??? *hmmmm, re-assessing my priorities*

Hope your weekend is being good!

I have never been that talented. Even my Beastie Boys do not have that skill. Wow.

lime said...

but can he cross his eyes AND take his own picture doing so all at the same time the spoon is dangling like his dear auntie lime?

nonetheless it is enough to make me weep with pride.

Minka said...

precious, that grin!
And after seeing that picture, I tried and failed miserably!

Goldennib~ You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villiany, oh, wait, was that Hollywood?

Susie~ The tongue curling is actually genetic, and so we have tried that. Thing One can, Thing Two can't - he has flat tongue genes. He has hitchhiker thumb, blue eyes and no widow's peak. I find all that genetic stuff facinating so we checked for all those. I also kept track of when he started developing knee caps.

Dan~ Watch it, or we will pass on overblown threats and claims of prowess to the queen of spoon balancing, Auntie Lime herself, who will reduce you to a quivering, defeated hulk of your former self. You have been warned.

Seamus~ It would hardly be fair if you had Thing level cuteness and the Buffle all in one family, it would throw off the balance of the universe.

Peg~ Ariella can't do it either, and lacks the will to try. I did it for demonstration purposes but he looks so much better doing it, I went with his pic.

Lime~ He is not to your level, but well on his way, give the lad time.

Minka~ Thank you for agreeing with my assessment on the matter, I think its precious too! Make sure you are working with a clean nose and breathe on the spoon before you try again.
:D

oh i am freaking jealous, and yes, i know, jealousy will get me nowhere...

...except to the kitchen where I will repeatedly practise this.

cindra said...

Crap. I think I lose on both counts!

barefoot_mistress said...

My nose is too small and greasy! LOL

Oooh! Word veri: brytx

(One of my favorite over priced fabric shops in SF, BRITEX! YAY)

snav said...

I am so proud of him!!

Logophile said...

Guggs~ May the force be with you, the trick is to realize
There is no spoon

Cindra~ You achieve an admirable level of cuteness, never fret.

Susie~ Small and greasy, dang, that sounds like, soooo totally hawt.

Snav~ Yes, Aunties Snav and Lime are quite the role models in this endevour.

I'm sunk - I'll have to pass on to the next generation and let the balancing begin!

Logophile said...

G~ Several hours of rigorous training a day, that is what it takes to be truly great. Or you can go with our approach and just wing that muthah.

Sar said...

*whistles* Bravo, Thing Two, Encore, Encore!

The Grunt said...

Serious talent, it is scary! It really is cool, Thing Two.

Blither said...

Oh Oh Oh .. I wanna try! What a cute lil Monkey you got!

Egan said...

He's got mad skills. I am not so good at balancing spoons on my nose. I'm jealous.
