"Mama," my eleven year old son said. "I made you a special drink. Come in the kitchen to get it."
I couldn't wait to see what this was about.
I walked in and found a cup filled with water. But it was upside down. I'm not kidding. The opening was against the counter.
I looked at my boy. "Bubba, are you kidding?"
At this point, he was laughing hysterically. "You have to drink it, Mama!"
"Dude, there's no way I can pick it up without spilling the water."
So, the cup is sitting on my counter, while I figure out how to deal with this special drink.
(In case you are wondering, Bubba did the old magic card trick. He covered the cup with the card, flipped the cup over, and removed the card. Pretty good trick!)
Who cleaned up the mess? You did, didn't you?ReplyDelete
It was an easy clean up. I simply slid the cup to the sink, and let the water spill into it.Delete
That sounds like something I'd done as a kid...ReplyDelete
It's a good kid trick!Delete
Sherry, he's such a smartie... even if it probably made a mess xoxReplyDelete
Surprisingly it wasn't as messy as I thought it would be.Delete
Bubba's a card - the joker!ReplyDelete
That's for sure!Delete
That is cool mam.ReplyDelete
It's a good trick!Delete
Yup, I did that.... is it any wonder I thank my mother regularly for letting me live?ReplyDelete
Haha! About twenty years from now, Bubba will probably be saying the same thing.Delete
That was really clever!ReplyDelete
I thought so, too.Delete
Very clever son you have there Sherry, Never a dull moment in your household. Great read,ReplyDelete
He's always coming up with interesting tricks.Delete
No words to say, just sitting here laughing wondering how do you respond to this fascinating kid?ReplyDelete
I just go with the flow. ;0)Delete
You need to scrub up your magician's assistant skills, you're supposed to pick up the water!ReplyDelete
Haha! Yes. I need to practice those skills. Right away!Delete
haha that would should be fun to tryReplyDelete
It almost made me want to try doing it myself.Delete
He'll soon have his own magic showReplyDelete
He might have a future in doing magic tricks!Delete
If it was a paper cup, poke a hole in the bottom, insert straw, and drink.ReplyDelete
If not? Yeah, your way is best.
It was a plastic cup. I wonder how a drill would work.Delete
Good thing it was just water. ;)ReplyDelete
No kidding! That could've been really messy!Delete
at least he didn't touch dad's boozeReplyDelete
Dad doesn't drink booze. :)Delete
Oh, Bubbaaaaa!! lol! Good one.ReplyDelete
I thought it was pretty good, too.Delete
Nice trick. Clever.ReplyDelete
Always impressed with Bubba's antics.ReplyDelete
You never know what he's going to come up with.Delete
hahaha! That's a very special drink! ;)ReplyDelete
He's a silly one!Delete
Sneaky Bubba! He better not become a bartender when he's older. I don't think most people would appreciate a "special drink" like that... XDReplyDelete
He should definitely stay out of the bars!Delete
I once played a prank on a friend where I filled two containers with water and asked him whether he could balance them on the back of his hands. Once they were both in place, I walked away.ReplyDelete
You are so bad! But I could definitely see you doing that!Delete
That sounds fun! Your kid certainly has some cool cards up in his sleeves. Hahaha!ReplyDelete

That's awesome. I was never that clever with my pranks as a kid.ReplyDelete
His dad was (and still is) a prankster!Delete
