Brandon's Photo Caption Contest

I am ambivalent about blogs. To me they essentially provide a means of staying informed about the lives of friends and family without having to make the effort of actually talking to them. On the other hand I think that blogs can be incredibly boring. I feel that a good blog is one that chronicles an event in someone’s life. Sadly, Chelsea and I lead pretty uneventful lives. So instead I have decided to post this picture.

This is my favorite childhood picture. I think my mother took it when I was six or seven years old. My mother affectionately titled it “He-Man Takes a Break” I love this caption. I feel that it captured the essence of my youth. Those not in my immediate family may not realize that I was a very hyper kid. My mom always said that I would run around and around until I just crashed. I am sure she was at least a little relived when I finally feel asleep, which must have been the motivation when she took the picture.

So I have decided that for my first attempt at blogging I would hold a caption-writing contest. Rules are simple. Just post a new photo caption. I will choose the winner in a couple weeks. In addition to the pride that comes with winning such a contest the winner will also receive an autographed copy of the above photo.

Good luck!

My vote is for "Tube sock stripling warrior." I also considered "Drool Master of the Universe - He-Man" but couldn't get past what appears to be a great combination of tube socks and slippers. I am also curious if you are wearing a cape or a bathrobe? Full props for this contest.

So who won? I of course vote for my sweetie except it should be "Slipper-Sock Stripling Warrior." I like the Papa Smurf one too and I am curious, what is "Limp Toe?"
