Spitting Llamas

Yesterday, I caught my son, Bubba, standing at the top of the stairs making strange noises.

"Dude," I said. "What are you doing?"

"Spitting like a llama."

I nearly went ballistic. "What? Spitting? In the house? No way. You are going to stop that right now!"

He grinned and did it, again.

That infuriated me. I don't normally get angry, but spitting in the house crosses the line!

Bubba knew I was mad.  "Don't worry, Mama. I'm not actually spitting. I'm just making it sound like I am, because it's funny."

"How do you figure that's funny?" I asked.

He pulled out his handy dandy iPad and showed me some videos of spitting llamas. 

"Tell me that's not funny," he said after we viewed them.

I cracked a little smile. "Okay, maybe they're just a little funny. But you'd better not actually spit like them!"

He agreed, and we have a truce.

Here's a video in case you want to get your giggle of the day:

  1. I wonder if llamas chew tobacco. That might explain their need to spit so often. :) Thanks for sharing the latest Bubba gag, dear friend Sherry!

    2. I've wondered about the tobacco habits of llamas, too. That's a good question.

      Yes, my boy is the spitting image of his dad - literally and figuratively. :)

  2. Oh LOL, they ARE funny :) I do not want to imagine what your house would look like if Bubba was actually able to spit like them though ;)
    Have a fabulous day!
    Lots of hugs,

    1. I couldn't even imagine. Between Bubba's spit, and Schultz's drool, we'd be living underwater!

  7. Thank heavens Bubba had some proof it was a little funny. He'd probably still be in trouble!

  9. The one thing my mom can't handle is spit. She handled diapers and food poisoning and injuries and even my ear drum exploding on her once...but she cannot deal with spit.

  13. Ewwweee. Gross. I think if your son had been spitting for real like this I'd be taking him to the doctors. That's a whole lot of drool.

  16. They really spit huh! It is a funny video. But how do we make that noise without actually spitting. Bubba must have been practising for awhile.

  19. I'm told that spitting llamas are funny until you're the one being spat on. ;-)
