"I'm Telling Your Mother!"
Kids are great! You've Gotta love 'em and the crazy things they say.
Back on one of my days off recently I was really getting into my R&R and decided to do something I very rarely do. I found a lighter and a cigar someone gave me as a gift and snuck out on my front porch to enjoy it.
Ok, I know it's "bad for you" but like I said, I very rarely have one, so what the heck? Ok, I had a beer too! I admit it!
I was solving world peace as I watched the smoke plumes rise into the brisk winter air. I was Reflecting on the past year and really enjoying the quiet calm.
That was, enjoying the quiet calm until my 5 year old son spotted me from his playroom window and made a bee-line to see what I was up to. My peace and serenity shattered as he flew out the front door and started with the 20 questions.
"Dad, Why are you smoking?"
Oh, it's just a cigar - and I only do it once in a while.
"It's different then the little white ones?"
Yes it's different
"Does your mother know you smoke?"
"Well, I'm gonna tell her!"
(Laughing Harder!) You want some cheese, you little rat?
He laughed himself as he walked back inside knowing that he just said something funny.
You know you're in trouble when your 5 year old threatens to tell your mother on you!
Anyway, I guess he forgot to tell her because so far I haven't been grounded!
How can we help you today?
