Aaron on Rum: A Saturday Snapshot

















First of all, this is not me.
If this was a picture of me, there would be paramedics on the way before the pixels were dry.
This is a shot of my nephew Aaron in one of his many impromptu contortions -- and after drinking his own body weight in rum [or whatever else was being handed out wholesale] at my niece's wedding.
If this was a picture of me, the next frame would show split pantaloons.
And again, ambulances and things like that. Much blood. Possibly exposed entrails.
But I include it here in this weekend's Saturday Snapshot to remind us all of how wonderful it is be young and agile and half-insane [and drunk].
Aaron is a wild child, the youngest son of my brother. At yet another wedding, I will never forget him entertaining us all outside of the venue with a rendition of his alter-persona, which he calls "Professor X".
I laughed so hard, again -- it very nearly required a 911 call on my behalf.
I think the kid is schizophrenic.
Vive le youth!

Thank you Alyce, for hosting this terrific Saturday Snapshot meme @ At Home With Books.

Nothing like a bit of rum courage!

He would enjoy Book Savvy's Oktoberfest too :-)

Being young he probably woke up without a hangover either!

Aren't weddings fun?! I used to be able to do cartwheels, but not anymore . . . maybe after some rum, though? ;)

The affection of the agile kid's uncle seeps through the post. Sounds like a memorable event.

Can one live precariously while living vicariously?

Haha! Does he remember 'striking a pose'? Nothing like a good family party to break down the inhibitions!
