I thought that was you...

Took the family to dinner the other night at a Mexican diner.  My youngest asked me to take her to the fountain to get her picture made.  Yes the restaurant has a fountain inside the restaurant.  No, I do not know why they have a fountain in the middle of the restaurant.  Yes she wanted to throw some coins in the fountain.  Are you going to let me get to the story? 

We get up and pass the booth directly behind where we were sitting.  I recognize a co-worker.  She says, "Hey Kipp I thought that was you.  I thought that was your head."  I chatted with her for a minute, introduced her to the family, etc.  

As I sat back down in the booth, I could not help but to process what she said "I thought that was your head."  OK the fitted hats I have bought have always been XL.  The protective baseball helmet was always XL.  The football helmet I wore that one year, was XL.  People have made comments about the big nugget sitting on top of my shoulders once or twice.  But this was the first time someone said it with their outside voice:
"Not many people around with a noggin that size, that has to be Kipp".  

A few days later, right after I turned around to answer "Hey Kipp..."  I asked my self about my large noggin.  I asked, Self, when I am out in public; do more people recognize me from the front or the back?  Self said, Come to think of it, there are more times I turn around to people calling my name as opposed to people waving at me or walking up to me with their hand out for a handshake.  Self then wanted to know, what's up with that?  Then Self and I got side tracked as we sang "Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo What's up with that?  What's up with that?" from the recent SNL skit.

Then a few nights ago my girls were watching family slide shows on our computer.  They were giggling about some of daddy's adventures.  You would not have believed this otherwise, so I added a few of the family pictures. It even made me crack up...






  
...OH sure now you know me!  What's up with that!
