Good News, Everyone!

By Wyatt Earp | April 1, 2010

And I am not even going to get snarky about in until the second paragraph or so. The Earp Ranch will be welcoming another little treasure in oh, say, September.

Yeah, the missus is pregnant again.

Let me elaborate. Remember that vasectomy I had last year? You know the one that concluded that “my boys” could no longer swim? Eh, not so much. Apparently there was a “mix up” and I slipped one past the goalie so to speak. Now, don’t get me wrong, after we both pulled our hair out, cried for six days, and passed out on the front lawn, we came to terms with the news.

We’re happy. Really frakkin’ surprised, but happy nonetheless. The missus laughed and said, “Well, we already have four. What’s one more?” She’s right. It’ll be a bigger struggle, but we can handle it. Hell, this should put us in the running for a reality show, right? GOT YA!!!

Just a warning that on April Fool's Day my natural distrust of others will be ratcheted up to a level bordering on psychosis


*I had to eliminate the “Read the rest of the story” button because you guys weren’t seeing the whole April Fool’s angle. Sorry ’bout that, but some of you guys are pretty trusting.

    He shoots, he scores!

    So, if I have my analogy correct, you are the Blackhawks and Mrs. Earp is Tony’s Place?

    At least if it’s another girl she’ll have three big brothers to beat the snot out of the horn-dogs that will be hanging around casa de Earp in a few years.

    Congratulations my friend.

    To think I was about to knit a pair of booties!
    I’m so disappointed, I’m going back to bed.

    Actually, I fell for it about as much as last year’s “I’m quitting the blog” post!

    With that April fools story, I’d be pulling for you to sue the pants of the Urologist “V” doctor!!

    Besides, I always get the feeling that your wife won’t let you touch her anymore!!

    Great April Fool’s offering. And there’s no bigger fool than you. My blood pressure is just starting to come back down.
    Well done, nephew o’mine!

    Vasectomies don’t fail, dude. That’s just what wives tell their clueless, gullible husbands. Or so I’ve heard :)

    The scary thing is, knowing your luck, it is plausible.

    Nice one dude. Almost got me… but as a member of the club the story left me a little er… blank???

    Dude, either you’re shootin’ armor-piercing or you now own a doctor.

    Hey! I fell for that…hook…line…and sinker!

    You owe me. I’ll take a Philly steak sandwich. If I’m ever in the area, I’m going to let you and your wife buy our family lunch.

    That is just mean….*stalks off wearing frown and smile…*

    Jim – Psst . . . Check today’s date!

    RT – Meh, I tried.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Well, you can knit me a skimpy bathing suit instead.

    Roger Dee – Thank you, Paul Harvey.

    Mrs. Crankipants – I do that every year. Wanted to change it up.

    Jon – Save your congrats.

    Clew – Thanks for stopping by. It’s April Fool’s Day, though. Four kids is more than enough for me.

    GroovyVic – I’m already frazzed now. Could you imagine me with a fifth kid?

    Danny – Yeah, she doesn’t want me to touch her at all. Just like every other woman in the world.

    Jason – Eh, what can ya do? Had to think of something.

    Uncle Ray – If it were true, I’d be over every other night for some Blue Moon therapy.

    John D – So my dream of repopulating the Earth has failed?

    Ingineer66 – Sweet. So it wasn’t in vain.

    Rick – Thanks.

    Code Monkey – Absolutely correct. That would be just my luck.

    Captain – I worried about the “V” failing for a while. Still do to an extent.

    Richard – Neither, sadly.

    Clady – It’s a date.

    As a retired guy, I look at it as, this is great because we have another taxpayer. Ok, I know I am being selfish but realistically there seems to be less and less “taxpayers” relative to “tax benefit receivers” these days. And many or most of them are not even retired.

    Congratulations, another good citizen is arriving.

    So did this April Fools joke start with the wife telling you she was preggers?

    BTW, a buddy of mine many years ago got fixed. His wife got pregnant. She didn’t know he was fixed….. She ran him over when he told her.

    Be careful with those kinds of jokes if the missus has the car keys.
