Even Steven, Mayor of Our House

By  | 

As much as I like to make fun of Even Steven,

Even Steven

He really is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.

He brakes the minivan for squirrels in the road, he blowdries Alice’s hair after she gets out of the tub so that she doesn’t have to go to bed with wet hair, and he wears socks to bed in the winter.

Well, I guess the sock thing doesn’t make him a nice guy necessarily, but I think it’s cute.

But – seriously – he’s a nice guy.

We were in the car last week and all of a sudden, Even Steven looked at me and said,

“You know… I could see myself running for office one day.”


That was my response. I don’t even know if he was referring to a township position or something within the city or heck -something in Congress?

I have no idea what he was talking about because I couldn’t stop laughing.

I was actually worried about myself because I was laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe.

Because all I could think about was this:

Even Steven in Stripes

and this:

Even Steven Superhero

and this:

Even Steven's Favorite Color

and this:

Hot Even Steven

and this:

Even Steven on the Potty

and this:

Even Steven Gazelle

and – this…

Even Steven is in trouble @My Life and Kids

Oh – wait – let’s not forget about this:


Or this…

Dear SWEET Even Steven,

I’m very sorry that I didn’t let you finish talking about your hopes and dreams while we were in the car last week. And I’m sorry that I almost threw up because I was laughing so hard.

And I’m even more sorry that no matter what office you were thinking of running for, I have already ruined your chances of winning. Without a doubt.

With everything I’ve written, you won’t be mayor of anything.

But you can always be mayor of our house. Well, maybe co-mayor.

Love you!

Even Steven

    Even Steven sounds a lot like Kevin and don’t feel bad, because if Kevin would have said this, I would have been laughing so hard I probably would have stopped breathing at some point! Happy Halloween!! 🙂

    If anyone in this house is going to be mayor, it’s me. Of course I’d need to be mayor of Skypeland or Second Life (does that even exist?) because I don’t like to step out of my comfort zone AKA my house.

    Let him run for office if he wants. I’ll vote for him, any day. (Just so long as he runs for office in my voting jurisdiction). 😛

    My dad got the grand idea that he’d run for mayor of our city. Let me put it this way… I would move cities if he did and I have already vowed that I’m staying in Nashville forever.

    The best part is these are all photo-shopped yet most people in office have these same picks not photo-shopped! He has a vote here!
