And now for the story:

My son was playing with his remote control helicopter.  "Mama, check out how good I can pilot this thing!"

I watched him soar it around the room, landing it on the coffee table.  "Nice job!" I said.

While he played, I put out the dinner:  Pork chops, green beans, and mashed potatoes.  I turned around and was about to take out the rolls from the oven, when I heard a funny sound.  I looked over my shoulder to see what it could be.  And do you know what I saw?  A tiny helicopter sitting in the middle of the mashed potatoes, with its propeller spinning.

"Dude!" I exclaimed.  "What do you think you're doing?"

"Whipping the potatoes!"

Oy!
