Sonny is thirteen years old today. Or as he puts it, “Yippee! Now I get to become all awkward and weird!” Yep, there’s that to look forward to, assuming of course you’re not already, bah-dum-bump!
So in honor of Sonny’s birthday, I thought I’d share with you my three favorite things he speaks into fellow wrestlers’ ears when he has them down on the mat. Side note: Sonny is from the “Stay down; I said stay down!” school of wrestling. I’m sure there’s a technical term for it. Win-by-pin, maybe? But whatever it’s called, he gets ‘em. And holds ‘em. And never lets ‘em go. All while whispering one of the following:
- Shhhh….there’s a bald eagle over there. Don’t move, you might scare it away.
- What? What?! What are you doing with your life?!?
- Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
How creative! How fun and fresh! Yay thirteen! Nooooo, not awkward or weird. Yet.
And no, Grandma. Of course he doesn’t actually whisper these things into anyone’s ear. He just jokes about doing it.
Anyway, Happy Birthday, our wonderful wrasslin’ boy. Thanks for being so amazing and for keeping us laughing. We love you more than we could ever say [she said in a whisper].
