It's Claudio (Said in the Mario Voice)

Today was picture day. Claudio came in his best button down shirt with a fancy corduroy jacket over the top. His hair was perfectly slicked.

As I was herding my kids to line up to get their pictures taken, I caught the following conversation:

Picture lady: Oh don't look fancy! Go ahead and take a seat with your knees facing forward. That looks great. Ok now can you put your hand down?
You look great, I just need that hand to come down.
Your hand is blocking your face can you put it down?
Why do you have your hand like that?

Claudio: It's holding my hat
Picture lady: But you're not wearing a hat.
Claudio: This is how Mario poses in all of his pictures.

Well he's not wrong.

I finally met Claudio's mother today. The first thing she said to me was, "He doesn't talk about Mario too much, does he?"

Hmmmm... How much is too much?


  1. Haha. That's super funny. He's not wrong.

  2. Hilarious. At least she is aware of the problem...

  3. I read this while people were over at my apartment, so I had to read it out loud in order to explain why I was laughing so hard. Everyone got a good kick out of it.
