Little Stinker - No Pun Intended

I can't believe I'm about to tell you this. I honestly can't believe it.
Some of life's moments are just too funny to be kept inside.


The setting:
Grocery store in suburban city, Ohio


The characters:
Megan - the rambunctious two-and-a-half year old, sitting impatiently in the cart
Lisa - bloated, crabby, and in the second trimester of pregnancy


Synopsis:
Lisa bends down to grab something from the bottom shelf. While crouching down, she lets out the teeniest, tiniest little toot. (A toot that seemed to echo through the walls of the canned goods aisle, stopping everyone in their tracks.)

Lisa *humiliated* decides the best course of action would be to blame the two-and-a-half year old, as dishonest as that seemed. She gasped and said, "Megan! Oh my goodness."


Megan, who has a strange habit of being totally uncooperative during moments when cooperation is essential, replies,


"Mommy, that wasn't my butt. That was your butt. And you should say excuse me."




What a little stinker.

LOL. I sometimes blame Buddy, our little shih tzu. The best thing is he doesn't talk back and put me in my place. It sounds like you have instilled some good manners in your little one. :)

Oh my! Too funny, isn't funny how honest they can be- at all the wrong times!

Our Family said...

Ahahahaha, aren't they just brutally honest at all the wrong moments. Too funny! There is nothing glamorous about pregnancy what we poor women go through.

My husband passed gas right before we were leaving the hospital with my youngest. The nurse walked in right as he did it. He blamed our son. The nurse said, "Whatever Dad, I know you did it."

Grandma Kate said...

I needed a good laugh for the day and you certainly provided it. I won't comment on teaching your child to be honest - as it's obvious that you have, but for something that has or will happened to everyone on the planet, kudos to you for sharing your story.

I am ROTFLing. I am not simply stating the anacronym, I am actually DOING it! I think that is just the little bit of laughter you needed in your life right now.
