Daniel and I have started wrestling. This involves him running full speed at me and “knocking me down” (until I get tired of that… then I catch him and body slam him). Every now and then if I won’t let him up, he yells, “Help me Susie!” If I look at her, then Susie will usually shake her head and say, “No way Daniel”… but if I don’t look, she’ll jump be from behind and start hitting me. Then I pin her down and tickle her until Daniel gets back in the fight. I’m trying to teach them how to be a good tag team. It’s a lost art, but I want them to be like the great teams of my youth (Arn Anderson/Tully Blanchard, Rock & Roll Express, Midnight Express, Road Warriors, Steiner Brothers, Sting/Lex Luger…). Right now they are fighting under the name “The Giggle Wiggle Twins” since Susie likes to giggle and Daniel likes to wiggle… and… well… strangers think they’re twins.
