Sharks are big at our house. Ian loves sharks. One year for Halloween, he was a shark (complete with a remora).
So it understandable that shark week is HUGE at our house, so is Mike Rowe. It is a wonderful day when Mike Rowe and shark week are combined. However last night, Mike lost his status as "I wish Mike Rowe was my Dad".
Mike's dirty job last night was in the Arctic searching for the elusive Greenland shark. That was cool...sub-zero weather, snowmobiles, airplanes. The group even found a shark - that was great! The not so great part was when we (the real parents) ignored the warning that said 'sensitive material ahead". The first part was ok, but let's just say we should have headed the second warning....After a few minutes, the t.v. was promptly turned off because the material was not appropriate for a almost six year old. The fact is Ian had seen what they were doing before on a different show, but Mike Rowe doing it on this show was horrible for him. Ian had LOTS to say about it and it wasn't pretty.
Sorry Mike, but last night's dirty job helped you to loose your favorite status for pretend Dad at our house (for this week anyway). And the real parents in the house have hopefully learned an important lesson too - follow the warnings to avoid stress before bed time.
