The ballad of Tony and Maria

26 Jul

I am in an odd place.

Kind of a calm before the storm.

I am sitting in the outdoor patio of a fast food place, watching Mad Max on my Kindle Fire.

That thing is awesome for watching movies.

Mel Gibson, by the way, was badass.

Was is the key word.

Now he is a vicious drunk and an out of control rageaholic.

Mad Max is now Mad Mel.

But I am not writing about him.

I am writing about them.

Tony and Maria.

I have been writing this blog for well over a year now, and hands down, the most popular post I have ever written was one about two hispanic teenagers, that had two kids together.

It was called “I just met a girl named Maria.”

I theorized that they would have a lot more kids before they are thru.

An extended Cadillac Escalade pulls into the parking lot.

Its a big car, bright white, with spinners.

And then the door opens and the occupants begin to get out.

Child after child after child, exiting like a clown car.

9 children in all.

and then the parents get out.

Mid to late twenties.

Mom still looks good.

Dad doesn’t look like he is being destroyed by extreme overtime in the effort to pay for these kids.

As they walk around the front to order, the kids hit the seats.

This is one of the largest families I have seen in years.

The kids range in age from an infant being tended by twin 10 year old girls, to a 12 year old son, clearly the oldest.

I will go out on a limb and say that there is a child for every year from 3 thru twelve.


I have to say that I am impressed.

I am viewing this as the future snap shot of Tony and Maria.

And they are doing exactly what I said they would be doing.

But they look like they are pulling it off.


I don’t wish ill for anyone.

Well, some people I do, I can’t lie.

But I only reported what I saw the first time, along with some snide comments, but not a real opinion.

This isn’t them, But I say it is, and you don’t get a vote.

What I should have said in that first blog was my honest opinion.

Here it is.

You can have all the kids you want.

But you have to man and woman up and take care of them.

Looks like they have.

More power to you, kids.
