Toxic Milk

"Mom," my eleven-year-old daughter said.  "Can you make me some toxic milk?"

"Excuse me?" I asked.  "How am I supposed to do that?"

"Just pour some milk in a glass and add toxic syrup.  Come on, Mom.  You know how to do it!"

"You want me to poison you?"  I asked.

The girl looked at me like I had twenty-six eyeballs.  "What are you talking about, Mom?"

"Toxic milk."

She started laughing.  "No, Mom.  Chocolate.  Chocolate milk."

"Oh," I said.  "That makes more sense.  You need to speak a little more clearly."

"And you need to get your hearing checked."

Right.

  5. Perhaps you’d better have that hearing checked. Musicians have trouble with their hearing, particularly viola players :-)
    I should know, I’m married to one and he never hears what I tell him.

  8. The words I think I hear are so much more interesting than what people actually say.

    Love,

  11. Very cute, for a minute I thought she was willing to go to extremes just so she wouldn't have to move!

    1. My husband says he's having trouble understanding our daughter, too, so maybe we both need our hearing checked!

  13. At first I thought this was a new dangerous trend, like the cinnamon challenge.

  14. Ha, ha. Sherry, I think you should arrive home one day wearing a hearing aid as a joke. You could have a lot of fun with that idea.
    I'll be back in September. Have a fabulous summer. :-)

    1. Heck, one day I probably will arrive home with a hearing aid, and I'll actually need it! ;)

  15. LOL! I have conversations like that with my 12 yr old, except he's usually the one who misheard, and his dad is standing right there to verify it. Kids are awesome. ;)
