Since Pokemon X and Y came out a few months ago, some of your boys have really gotten into it. Some have just played the game, some still find things to do with it, and some are really getting deep into it, and use some of their screen time to explore online possibilities.
One of those is your (older) 11-year old son, Parker.
Maybe too inspired?
You see, two of his big brothers - Barry and Mickey - are into video and blogging, respectively. Because of shared interests in comics (especially) and gaming, Parker has always been close to Daniel and Bryce, and has gotten along pretty well with Barry and Josh. However, Parker and Mickey are one of those pairs who've never been especially close.
Barry has made time to help Parker learn to use an old video camera and has given him some feedback on making videos. Mickey, on the other hand, has been busy, with the upcoming Superbowl, and the start of baseball training, with his blogging, as well as preparing a new speech for upcoming TFA and UIL contests. He promised that he'd find some time to help Parker with a few tips on how to write material for a blog, 'when things calmed down a bit.
You weren't there for all of it, but it sounds like Mickey (more or less politely) rebuffed Parker a couple of times this morning and did make an attempt to explain that he didn't feel like doing it right then. Parker really wasn't willing to take no for an answer. Getting tired of verbally chasing his little brother away, Mickey picked Parker up, threw him over his shoulder, and carried him downstairs, dropping him onto a couch. You saw the end of this, as well as Parker popping up and popping his brother.
Will pop be popping next?
