"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!)
