"Mama?" my nine-year-old son asked. "Do you think I'll ever be in the Guinness Book of World Records?"
"Um, I don't know," I said. "Maybe. What record do you want to set?"
He shrugged. "I don't know."
"Well, Bubba, if you want to set a record, you have to set a goal and work towards it. Otherwise nothing is going to happen."
He thought about that. "I'm going to build at 10,000 foot building and be the first person to jump off with a parachute."
"I'm not sure that's such a great idea, Bubba. Jumping off a building is a recipe for disaster. You'd better think of something else."
He did. "I've got it, Mama. I'm going to set the record for causing the most destruction with my hands in two minutes!"
I looked at the kid, wondering where the heck he came up with that. "Oh yeah, Bubba? If you do, I'm going to end up in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Grouchiest Mama on the Planet!"
Be sure he gives you warning before attempting that record.ReplyDelete
I hope he does, but unfortunately, if he does attempt this record, I'm sure he won't tell me, because I'll put a stop to it before it even gets started!Delete
The Incredible Hulk has nothing on Bubba!ReplyDelete
Ha! Yes. I just saw a trailer for the new movie, Hercules. I think even Hercules has nothing on Bubba!Delete
Hope he do make The Guinness Book of Records in years to come. Will you remember this post if he do?ReplyDelete
Yes. But I hope his record is for something a little more respectable than causing destruction!Delete
Bubba-zilla. I raised 5 daughters and thought that was hard.ReplyDelete
Hugs and chocolate,
Ha! Yes, boys are a entirely different animals!Delete

I think he can set a record for having the most blog posts written about him.ReplyDelete
Haha! Do you think? Maybe I should see if I can submit that as a record!Delete
Work with your strengths, Bubba.ReplyDelete
That's what he does!Delete
He might get in there yetReplyDelete
I like Janie's idea about having the most blog posts written about him. That's a record!Delete
Causing the most destruction with my hands in two minutes? Wait, he's trying to break my record???ReplyDelete
Hahaha! If you have the record, I feel really bad for your mom!Delete
Hee hee. Gotta give the kid credit for coming up with a goal he can meet!!! LOL. Smart guy!ReplyDelete
He knows what he can handle!Delete
I remember being fascinated by the Guinness Book of World Records as a kid. I don't remember attempting to get into the book, though. I love Bubba's creativity.ReplyDelete
I've always found the Guinness Book of World Records interesting. Some of the records are unbelievable!Delete
