It all started when I sent a video to my sister Sandy and she asked me what it said on Grampy’s T-shirt. I explained it to her and I thought I would share it with everyone else. Amara needs to remember this! I’ve included some of the pictures below, too!
Flying eyeballs is kind of a joke around here. I love Grampy but sometimes he is over the top protective! “Don’t run with that in your hand — you will poke your eye out” — that kind of thing. Then after my retina problem, he made a joke about deferring to me as to whether something was “worse than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick” because I would know. When Amara was just a baby I had a partially detached retina. They put needles in my eye and filled it with this gas and it was NOT fun at all! So I am the expert on getting poked in the eye!
Then Amara starts the whole business of making Grampy bite the eyeballs (gumballs) off the ice cream bars which was another eyeballs reference. I found him another shirt that says, “It is all fun and games until somebody loses an eyeball — then flying eyeballs!” and it had two stick figures and eyeballs flying… you get the idea. Grampy wore it with pride!
And then I saw this shirt! “It is all fun and games until someone loses an eyeball, and then, HEY! FREE EYEBALLS!” Amara loves these shirts and she sure loves her Grampy!
Here are some of the pictures! Click them and make them larger because some of the looks on Grampy’s face are really funny!
This is Sandy’s response to my explanation of the t-shirt.
