Where would we be without characters like Mr. T?
As a kid, one of my favorite t.v. shows was the A-Team, and he was the muscle, BA Baracus! And George Pappard at the end of every episode, “I love it, when a plan comes together.”
He was one of Rocky’s boxing opponents, Clubber Lang, in Rocky III. “I’m gonna hurt you real bad. Pain.”
Then, there was what my dad and uncles referred to as Rastlin’
(aka – wrestling)
I’ve always wanted to sternly and toughly match his persona and say,
“I pity the fool!”
Of course, I always forgot to insert that into conversation. Now many years have past, and my kids would be like, who’s Mr. T?
My husband and I, from time to time, will play upon his phrasing, “Flint Lock.. woooood.”
Mr. T. is awesome and I’m thankful for all the fun he has brought us over the years.
