At War


Scene: The kitchen. I am washing dishes while Rose, Zoe, and our yellow lab keep me company.

Rose: Thanks for making scones this morning.

Me: You're welcome. Blah, blah, blah...

*Sound of a spitball flying across the room behind me*

Yellow lab moves surreptitiously to the corner of the kitchen and eats something off the floor.

Me: Did you just spit the end of your scone across the room for the dog to eat?!?!

Rose: holding up Zoe to demonstrate My hands were full!

Me: You are a five-year-old boy!

Rose: spits again

Yellow lab, ready for it this time, catches the hunk of scone out of the air and noms it down.

Rose: Look, she caught it!

I am paralyzed.

Rose is laughing.

Me: The two sides of me are at war over whether to be appalled or impressed. I think they just tied.

That line between appalled & impressed can be such a tough call sometimes. :-)

Haha! This officially marks the second time the first click of "next blog" has scored for me in as many days. Your script had me laughing like a lunatic. I don't know why, exactly... maybe I just needed to laugh. But in any case, thanks!

It's those little moments in life that we have to enjoy. I think Rose is AWESOME! I would have done the same :)
