The truth, the whole truth and nothing but...

I was putting on makeup this morning when B strolled into the room.

"What are you doing?"

"I'm putting on eyeliner."

"Why?"

"Well, people think it makes women's eyes look prettier. Want to see it? Look-- I've got it on my left eye, but not on my right. Do you see the difference?"

"NO! All I see is a bunch of wrinkly lines next to your eyes!"

Reminds me of what I said to my Mom when I was a wee lad. She was remarking to a friend that she was fat. I said, "You're not fat. You're stocky...like a football player."

And then she tackled you? ;-)

Alex is over 30 and still says things like that. It's that 'why' chromosome!

anno said...

m. once said something like that. She denies it all now. I think she's hoping to date someday. Or something.

I'm surprised Greg's mother ever let him out from under the porch.

Betsy said...

Ha! You know, Anno, I usually try to avoid hackneyed acronyms, but:

LOL!

Because your comment actually made me do just that!

Betsy, thanks so much for your supportive comments yesterday. And darn it, I lost your e-mail addy!

Ouch! Don't you love the youngin's for passing out the brutal reviews? When I want to know the truth I ask my boys. (sometimes, sometimes I just don't want to know) My oldest is finally grown up enough to begin being diplomatic - "Well, I know you like that shirt/those jeans/ those shoes, but... you'll always be my mom and I love you no matter what!" *lol*

LOL kids

One time I tripped over our dog (I tried to walk over him while he was laying there, but he decided to jump up) and I fell. My son asked me a few min later "why does it look so funny when old people fall?"

ugh haha Your little story made me think of that time.
