That Awkward Moment When Your Dad Tells You You’re Really A SuperHero

March 7, 2012

The Boy Who Cried Over Everything is selling well, and Dan is responding (in red crayon) to personalized letter requests from parents of children who cry over everything.  To receive your own letter from Murray see:  I overheard the following awkward exchange between Dan and Charlie on Saturday.

Dan: “Come on Charlie, we’ve got to go help a little boy in South Carolina who cries about practically everything.  Just like you used to do!”

(Nevermind the fresh tears on Charlie’s cheeks over the disheartening news that he cannot marry Uncle George.  Information I was tricked into revealing when Charlie casually stated: “I guess I can’t marry Uncle George.” I concurred, and the wailing began: “But I want to marry Uncle GEEEOOOOORGE!”)

Dan (continued): “This little boy from South Carolina needs a letter from Murray!”

Charlie: “But, Dad, who is the real Murray?”

Dan: “Charlie, didn’t you know?  YOU are the real Murray!”

Charlie (confused, yet flattered): “Me? I’m the real Murray?”

Dan: “Yes, son, you are the real Murray.”

Charlie (with appropriate humility): “But Dad, I’m just Charlie.”

Life will never be the same.

And here he is, looking, to the naked eye, like a regular boy:

And here he is, apparently kissing his beloved Lightning McQueen, who I guess he will marry if he can’t marry Uncle George:
