So, I thought I would do another free association with my words. I have some stories for each set but not really anything that I could string together into one story.
SMOKE - Ahhh, that's a good word. Imagine this.
You are talking on the telephone in your bathroom
(to avoid interruptions). You are looking out the
window and watching your 2 oldest sons setting up a
fire to dispose of some downed tree branches.
There's a bit of smoke as the branches try to catch.
Then next thing you see is your oldest son
approaching the fire with the gas container.
You start screaming!! NOOOO!!! NOT ON THE
You know that you just avoided a major trip to the
HOT BURNER - Ahh, another image of my oldest son
comes to mind. SIGH....
He's about 7. You have just been cooking supper.
He goes into the kitchen. At some point he lays his
hand on the hot burner. But does he tell you this??
NOOOOO!!!!! You notice the black marks on his hand
while giving him a bath. Weird, they won't come off.
Jacob, what's on your hand??
Oh, nothing. I burnt my hand on the stove today.
MOM, THE TOILET IS BROKEN - How many times
have I heard those words??? I couldn't possibly say. A good
estimate would be about a million. I hear them at
least once a month, AT LEAST!!!
As a matter of fact, when we were staying in the
hotel I heard them at least twice a week.
But there were a few times that it wasn't actually
the fault of any of MY children.
I used to babysit to make extra money. There was
this one little girl that just LOOOOVED to put things
in my toilet. The most memorable items would be
the boys toy Pokemon. SIGH... I finally stopped
babysitting her. I couldn't afford all the plumbing
YOU DID WHAT - A phrase that comes out of my mouth on a daily basis.
But here's one you might not expect...
Once again I am in the bathroom trying to talk on the phone. There's a knock at
the door. It's Deanna.
Momma! I just got bit by a cat!
I open the door and there she stands with her hand dripping blood in several places.
I tried to catch a cat.
YOU DID WHAT???
I tried to catch a feral cat. It was hungry so I took it some food. Then it looked really thirsty but I was afraid it would run away so I grabbed it to take it to some water. It went all ninja kitty on me.
And that's how Deanna ended up getting rabies shots plus tetanus and antibiotic shots.
There you have it folks! Free association! LOL
