I got some news today that has blown my mind!

My wifes eldest son has announced this afternoon that he and his girlfriend are expecting a baby!

Mrs Redman is a touch older than me and has two brilliant boys from a previous relationship, I've been with her for the best part of 11 years and the boys haven't seen their natural father pretty much since they were babies. I'm their Dad, no question about it. If you want to question that, come round to my house and I'll gladly debate it with you...

What is making me feel dizzy is the fact that I'm going to be a grandpa! It's so fucking weird I cannot begin to describe it! I'm only 37!

Just thought I'd share that with you all!

Please 37 is very old.
In this town we have many in their early 30s who are grandparents. They all live in the are Klockaretorpet which is only know cause its the end station of the number 3 tram line which people have to take to get to the TV station or Hockey and Basketball arenas outside the city.
It looks like a favela out of fucking Rio or something, and its easily the roughest part of Sweden outside the big 3 cities.
I advice you to relocate there and sell crack.

anyhow, congratulations my friend!

Klockaretorpet? So that's where you live! :D Gotta remind that if I'm making a social call one of these days...

And congratulations Jonny! 37 years old is a bit too young to be a grandfather...:)

Did you know JR, that you became a grandparent at roughly the same age my parents had me? How does this make you feel? :D

There's no point in fighting it... Call me whatever you want... I'm made up that my lad has decided to go for it and be a parent. If that means me being called Gramps then so be it! :D

Pretty much nailed it there El Chad... One minor point that's missing, I sit in another room on the PC whilst the rest of the family sit watching TV.

We're all drunk though... even the kids. Smoke like chimneys too.

When we're not all pissed out of our minds we parade around in this kind of gear, it's really comfy...

I forgot about the peado myth with the Werthers original blokes. I was just pissing about with the grandpa sweets thing. Didn't want Jonny or anyone else to get the wrong idea.

Chad Haden
01-27-2007, 06:42 PM
:eek: What peado myth? I saw a documentary on that sort of thing once, it was hosted by this rather smart looking fellow called Chris Morris.

The Werther's fella likes the wee ones eh? Belgian, is he?

I saw that documentary too, harrowing stuff. I don't know exactly where it come from but a lot of people take the piss with it and my mate swears by it. Don't know if it's true or not. Forgot about that when I was posting the pic.

Ack! Way to go and fuck up Jonny's congrats thread! Sorry! :o

I like that Jonny's thread about turning into a grandpa has become an outlet for us to mock Northern stereotypes.

It takes the heat off the Irish, eh?

Congrats, Johnny. Not that it's the same thing, but I became an uncle in the fourth grade. Figure that.
