He Joaned it

You know back when you were in little league and you were on one of the best were so good that when you played some of the weaker teams you would win soundly, but by like the third inning your coach would start putting in the nose-picking bench riders because he wanted it to still be a game and maybe lessen the humiliation of the other team? Yeah? Me too. But my baby brother never played little league.
Toad's toothpick tower for senior Physics. It was supposed to be built to hold 50 lbs. You're looking at 550 lbs. sitting on his tower. How is it that an 18-year old can make you feel like an underachiever?

Joan: (verb) Doing something to the extreme; utmost or exceedingly great in degree, (example: I wanted the house to be spotless so I rolled up my sleeves and joaned it.)

It's ok. Braden has a way of making us all question our life's achievements. I think that's what makes it so easy to order him around. The fact that he enjoys it is merely coincidence.
also. I'm so glad I have more words and phrases to add to my vernacular. To think that 7 days ago, I had no idea that the word "Idaho" could be used as an adjective.

Example: I had just come from painting a fence and hadn't showered for a few days, so I just went to the Idaho K-Mart because I knew I would fit right in.
