Question of the day

Thursday, Jan 17, 2013

* My mom and me at the Wisconsin Dells. I think I was eight…

Mom has never liked her picture taken, but her expression probably indicated her exhaustion from the trip. My parents had four sons by then and one or two foster children. Another son would be born two years later.

* The Question: What was going through our minds at the time?

Be kind to my mom or I will hurt you. Thanks.

    I know the “Human Q-tip” is scary, honey. Just close your eyes and walk away.

    ===Be kind to my mom or I will hurt you===
    Be kind to your mom? That’s easy. But holding back on that picture of you is going to be tough. Go for the easy zingers or stay away from being banned for life?


  10. - Anonymour - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 2:57 pm:

    Now that we’ve complied with the Illinois law that we take the kids to the Dells once, can we LEAVE?


  11. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:01 pm:

    C’mon Richard, I asked you if you had to go when we were at the restroom. You’re just going to have to hold it.


  12. - Shemp - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:03 pm:

    Seriously, she looks young enough to be your sister in that photo, let alone a mother of 4!


  13. - Leatherneck - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:05 pm:

    What? The Illinois pension systems are underfunded?


  14. - Bill - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:05 pm:

    Beautiful Mom, normal looking kid. What happened?


  15. - bored now - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:06 pm:

    i’ve seen that look before.

    “why are you taking my picture NOW?!?!”

    i’ll bet someone was in trouble!


  16. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:06 pm:

    ===she looks young enough to be your sister in that photo===

    I was the oldest. She was 18 when I was born.


  17. - anon - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:06 pm:

    Mom: “I wonder how Richey would look with an untrimmed beard, and perhaps an additional 150 pounds?”

    Richey: “I keeping having these visions of late nights, hard livin’, and stirring up all sorts of s***.”

  19. - OneMan - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:13 pm:

    Rich: Hey, you know Santa here at Santaland doesn’t look bad with a beard in the summer…

    Mom: What is that guy from the Tommy Bartlet show doing by our bumper?


  20. - anon sequitor - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:14 pm:

    Richie, Richie Richie, what am I going to do with you?

    I sure hope you get a job with the government and earn a nice pension so I won’t have to worry about him.


  21. - Because I said so... - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:17 pm:

    Mom to Rich…You’re killin me smalls!


  22. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:19 pm:

    ===Mom: What is that guy from the Tommy Bartlet show doing by our bumper?===

    LOL

    A memory just returned. It was so hot that day that the bumper sticker patrol just put a sticker under our windshield wipers. Dad was freaking out when he saw that other cars, which apparently arrived earlier in the day, had stickers on them. Dad hated bumper stickers back then. Then, of course, he put gigantic Obama 08 stickers on the side of his 63 Cadillac. Those are gone now. There’s just a Goldwater 64 sticker on the back bumper.


  23. - Michelle Flaherty - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:20 pm:

    Mom: I wonder what that Mike Madigan is trying to do.
    Lil Rich: How long until I can go to Trotter’s office?


  24. - Wumpus - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:20 pm:

    Your mom looked very pretty in this picture. Not inappropriate, just a simple compliment.


  25. - WazUp - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:21 pm:

    “Look I’m sorry Wally World was closed but this will have to do”


  26. - Anonymour - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:22 pm:

    Now, now, Rich. Don’t be scared of the python.


  27. - WazUp - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:22 pm:

    “I told you when your eating cotton candy don’t run you fingers through your hair…Geesh!”


  28. - OneMan - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:23 pm:

    My dad had the exact same reaction as yours, at that point they were putting them on with wire, ordered the guy to remove it…


  29. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:23 pm:

    Don’t worry Richie, you will grow into the hair.


  30. - WazUp - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:24 pm:

    Rich coins the phrase ‘Q-Tip” after seeing the older lady in the background with the white hair.


  31. - How Ironic - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:30 pm:

    Rich thinking to himself after exiting the “Illinois 50 Years In The Future” exhibit…..’huh who’s Betsy, I gotta meet that dame. What’s a gadfly and why is he gov?


  32. - Calico Jim - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:32 pm:

    Rich: “Mom, why do those people have hats that look like blocks of cheese”?


  33. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:44 pm:

    I will be kind to your mom….I thought it was your older teenage sister! Good lord!


  34. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:48 pm:

    Rich, “…and Mom, the band is going to paly some great music, and they opened for that band I saw when I was at the other place, and after they play, I think the next band, they are far out! …”

    Mom, (to herself) “This music thing, I hope Rich outgows it! I don’t understand, he only gets into trouble listing to these bands…”


  35. - Spiney Norman - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:51 pm:

    Honestly Richie, stealing a go-cart? Next thing I know you’ll be hijacking golf carts at the State Fair.


  36. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:54 pm:

    Rich: “…and I’ll write my own stories about all of the big shots and all of their deals, and everyone will read them and everyone will be talking about it. And I’ll have a big house by the lake and a boat and a really cool car and I’ll be famous.”

    Mom: “What’s a fax machine?”


  37. - Responsa - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:58 pm:

    Mom: Well YOU were the one who wanted to come here and see the Tommy Bartlett water show. What exactly did you expect? I tried to tell you it was gonna be, in your words, “just a bunch of dumb girls on skis”!

    (Confess, Rich. You decided to take us along on your little trip down vacay memory lane after reading my answer to yesterday’s QOTD, didn’t you?)


  38. - just sayin' - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 3:59 pm:

    What’s a fax?

    Ironically, same question asked today.


  39. - Roadiepig - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:00 pm:

  40. - Just Me - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:14 pm:

    ===You decided to take us along on your little trip down vacay memory lane after reading my answer to yesterday’s QOTD, didn’t you?===

    Nope. It’s been in the queue for a few days.

    “What? There are no water parks in 1968?”


  43. - Nearly Normal - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:23 pm:

    Mom: I heard what the fortune teller said to you, Rich. “You will grow up to have a beard, work in Springfield, and write a blog!” A blog? What is a blog?

    Rich: I don’t know. Mom! Are we going to the water show and take a boat ride? I want to have fun now and worry about the future later.

    Mom: Let’s ask your Dad.


  44. - Rich Miller Sr - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:27 pm:

    NOTE: TRANSITIONED


  45. - Rcih's Mom - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:38 pm:

    Mom: What do you mean you have lost your Dad and little brothers? I was counting on you to keep them out of trouble!
    Rich: Don’t worry Mom, I left them by the giant slide? He was giving a speech to all of the people in line on what a great President Nixon is.


  46. - walter sobchak - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:42 pm:

    Mom: Rich, you’ll always be eight years old on a hot day in Wisconsin to me.

    Rich: Mom, you’ll always be twenty-six and so pretty when I close my eyes.


  47. - CaseyW - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:49 pm:

    Mom: “I swear he had 10 fingers when we got here..”
    Rich: “I’m…I’m getting a little woozy.”


  48. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 4:50 pm:

    Rich’s Mom “Where is the nearest restroom, I think my son is going to get sick?”


  49. - cassandra - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:02 pm:

    When I was a mother of several young children I felt so old, yet she, and other mothers of young kids, look so young to me now.


  50. - Steve Bartin - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:05 pm:

    Rich:

    There’s not much to say. Your Mom is hot. That’s a very good picture. Period.


  51. - Wensicia - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:09 pm:

    I was about ten at the time, but I remember the two ponytails hair style that was popular back then. Nice picture.


  52. - dupage dan - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:12 pm:

    Hey, dude, you point that camera at me again and you’ll be picking pieces of it from between your teeth.

    Honestly, Rich, I see some resemblance between you and your mom. We could see it better if you shaved.


  53. - Leatherneck - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:51 pm:

    Mom: I don’t know if this “Michael Madigan” guy will serve for long in the Illinois House.

    Rich: I’m not so sure–my tummy hurts.


  54. - Leatherneck - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 5:56 pm:

    We were able to take this vacation in spite of Governor Ogilvie’s recent tax increase–but look on the bright side: maybe it will keep our state budgets balanced and the pension systems sound forever!


  55. - Redbird - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 6:12 pm:

    Mom: Maybe we should have gone to the House on the Rock?

    Rich: If Lake Delton ever floods, whoa! Look out!


  56. - Enemy of the State - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 6:20 pm:

    Mom: Now Rich I know you wanted to go to Springfield for the Lincoln sites but you have to think of the others. Maybe you can work in Springfield someday. Just don’t grow a beard so you can look like Lincoln.


  57. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 6:57 pm:

    - zatoichi -,

    What am I a punch line?! lol


  58. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 7:01 pm:

    Rich confused him Mom by asking her…

    “Mickey’s a mouse, Donald’s a duck, What’s Goofy, Mom?”


  59. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 7:40 pm:

    Mom: “Sorry, comments are closed at this time.”

  62. - Oneman - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 8:47 pm:

    Rich discovered that saying ‘bite me’ to the guy who asked if he was tall enough for that ride resulted in getting ones mouth washed out with soap…


  63. - RNUG - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 8:51 pm:

    Mom: Richie, how many times do I have to tell you? We’re off the Ducks now; it’s safe to open your eyes. And comb your hair!

    Rich: I don’t feel so good …


  64. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 17, 13 @ 8:58 pm:
