Will the Thrill, not just a fashion guru, but a thinker too!
So it was hot Saturday in Charlotte (About 90 degrees and a little humid) and as usual Will had like 16 layers of clothes for no reason except that he likes the gear. He came inside from playing out side, his face beet red, sweat dripping down, and drinking water like he was about to die.
I said "Will, buddy why don't you take some of your clothes off. It is so hot outside."
Will said, " I just don't want to dad. I like them."
I then decided I would try and come up with a clever analogy that he could understand. "Will, remember when the sun came out after it rained and we found all those worms on our driveway.
Will: -- "Yeah dad, I remember."
Austin: -- "And Remember how they were all fried up and dead because they got so hot in the sun. You are going to be like those worms if you don't take off some of your clothes, " I said pretty proud of my analogy.
Will: "Dad, Worms don't wear clothes!" he said dismissing my comparison and walking away like I was pretty stupid.
What could I say but, Touchee. And off he went back to the hot summer heat, 16 layers and all.
