The Mysterious Blue Mug

"Welcome to the first edition of 'Diego's Dinner Theater.'  I'm glad you found my preview so intriguing as to return.  We start our story with our handsome young protagonist drowning his sorrows away."

"Mmmmm, peaches."

"Oh no, my peaches! Don't take my peaches!"

"The audacity! I will fight against this high offense!"

"Come here, blue mug. I'll make sure your contents are cared for."

"Cared for in my belly."

"Excuse me, may I interject here, narrator?"

"You see, I don't think that this accurately portrays the struggle of the protagonist. He's in a crazy, high chair world where peaches just appear out of blue mugs. What choice does he have but to go after the mug? It's his brass ring.  Except this brass ring only brings destruction.  Allow me to demonstrate..."

"It begins simply. You're in a possibly precarious situation, but all seems safe. You have your building blocks - these are stand ins for the peaches, of course."

"And then all of a sudden your whole world topples over the edge of the high chair.  In a split second you are left with nothing."

"So you see, our protagonist is trying to provide for the future while living in the present. 
Now please resume your story."

"I got pears! Yay!"

Mornings with Diego

"Don't even talk to me until I've had my morning cup of pears and oatmeal."

"Ah, much better."

"It's amazing, you know."

"What a difference a little bit of pears and a little bit of oats can make on a person."

"Blue Mug? Can you make more pears please?"

" the struggles of Diego-kind."

"And more."

"More avocado, to be specific."

"All from a very high vantage point."

Someone got his picture taken by something other than a webcam

Diego at 6 months

Professor Diego

"Toes! I have TOES!"

"I'm thinking really, really, really, really deep thoughts."


Tea Pot Diego ("Tip me over and pour me out!")

"Why, yes. I do work out. Thanks for asking."

"What do you mean no new foods until after Cancun?"

(No new foods until after Cancun. We'll be testing the sunblock for reactions and getting his 6 month vaccinations, so I don't want to add a potential food allergy to the mix.)

I'm sure Diego will find something to blog about in the meantime.

A Special Message to Grandma

"Happy Birthday, Grandma!"

"I wore elephants in celebration of this day (there are even a couple orange ones too)!"

"I'm eating my favorite food in your honor. And then I thought..."

"Elephants must love pears, too!"

"Happy Orangemen's Day, too!"

Plums revised

Looks like we have to do our first ratings revision.

Plums apparently should not have been 3 stars.

Or maybe it's just plums mixed with oatmeal that's inspiring that face.

Regardless, plums have been downgraded to 2 thumbs down.
