The Dad seems to think The Babe forgot The Dad was present. As the table was recovering from the response to The Babe's declaration (apparently the group thought this was quite hilarious), The Dad looked at The Babe with surprise (what the...where...who...). The Babe knew he was busted. As his eyes welled up with tears he placed his head in his hands.
I got a call from The Dad the night of what I now call the "incident". Although we were able to laugh about it, and I was able to say "better you than me", I had a number of thoughts swirling in my head:
- This is not one of those funny kid stories I can retell. Think about it; if I retell this story people will wonder what in the hell I am letting my kids watch on TV.
- Why on earth would he say that? Has he seen movies like this. With whom? Where?
- Well, I guess I know what he will do for a living. Yay me...lifetime supply of adult entertainment. As long as he is happy I guess.
