Conversation with my five year old...

"You know, I can count really high now Mummy, want to hear?"

"Ok...go ahead."

She begins to count perfectly up until 22...

"22, 29, 100, 110, 115, 123, 129, 133..."

"You missed a few in between, but not a bad job at all."

"How high did I get Mum?"

" 100 years, that's how old I'll be. 133."

"No you won't."

"I will too."

"Nuh-uh, cuz you'll be dead by then."

"You don't know that...people live to be really, really old now-a-days."

"Yeah, but not that old. You'll probably live to be 30 and that's all."

"Honey, I'm 33...that's three years older than 30. Go outside and play now."

*heavy sigh*

"Out of the mouths of babes",lol.

Being of the shaved head myself, and my Wiff having looong red hair, It was an easy joke at the house anytime you found a hair a) on food b) in a drink c) attached to you mysteriously, etc....

So(within earshot of his mother)my 10yr.old son hears me grumbling to myself after nearly tripping over a strand of hair (yes, it can be done, one strand that somehow wrapped itself around my pinky toe and the other end was "attached" to a table leg,lol. I'm tellin you, my girl has some strong MotherEffin' HAIR)"now I wonder who THAT could've belonged to?" Josh chirps up, "MOOOM!" (me grumbling while unlashing myself from the funhouse super death-strand hair of doom(tm) "Sheesh! How'dja possibly figure that out Mr.Partysmants, cuz it's longer than yours or mine?"

"nope" the little fucker grins, "cuz it's GRAY!!!"

(me) muuuuUUUUAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHaahahahahahah
*gulp* (wiff enters room w/ effing LASER BEAMS coming out of her eyes, and lemme tell you, If looks could kill, I'd be a big pile of goo right now.) "I don't think that was funny at all mister!"
Man and son together *DOUBLEGULP*

Mom grins,"it was VERY funny ya daffy little mutt, but don't you DARE ever say it again"

Felt the icy stare of death and lived to tell about it......truestory, lol.
