Don’t call us, we’ll call you

Searching through all my old phone pics reminded me of a little anecdote I never recorded. Addison and I were chilling at our little neighborhood library (not to be confused with the big one with the fountain) when Addison excitedly yelled, “DADDY!” while pointing at the magazine racks.

I looked over to where she was pointing and the first picture I saw was of a certain Johnny Depp (Dark Shadows style):

Pretty close. But when I asked if he looked like daddy, she vigorously shook her head no.

Right next to Johnny was a certain Robert Downey Jr. (who may or may not be my most enduring celebrity crush):

I was sure she was thinking that he looked like daddy. The resemblance is uncanny, right?

But again, she gave me an emphatic no, while leading me to the actual picture she was pointing to.




  1. That’s hilarious! It was so good to see you guys last night.

  3. Too funny! E did the same thing with a picture of the young Paul Newman. I told her maybe if mommy had a time machine…

    • Sarah, your comment reminded me of the fact that my brother proudly proclaimed “Daddy!” every time he saw Reggie Jackson playing baseball on TV when he was a little tyke. Reggie Jackson’s cool and all, but he’s also black and in much better shape than my dad.

  4. GREAT. I’m so glad you shared this. Celeb crushes, can’t live without ’em. RDJ…good choice.

  7. Of course, it makes perfect sense. Neal, the artist of stick figures, and Will is her mama, right? 😉

    • I think the Will-mama connection is even more disturbing!
