One of the chores my son has to do, is take out the garbage. Admittedly, it's not one of his favorites.
The other day, I asked the boy to do his job. "Okay, Mama," he said.
I went out and came back a little later. I didn't think about the garbage until I was preparing dinner. When I went to throw out some trash, I noticed something strange. The garbage can wasn't there.
"Bubba," I called. "Where's the garbage?"
"I threw it away," he answered. "Just like you asked."
"Okay. Great. You took out the trash. But where is the garbage can?"
"I threw that away, too. I got rid of all of it. Now we don't have to worry about taking out the garbage anymore."
(Needless to say, I sent him out to retrieve the can. He wasn't getting out of garbage duty that easily!)
Nice try, Bubba. Unfortunately, garbage keeps producing itself.ReplyDelete
He'd have to keep going outside to toss the garbage if he tossed the inside can.Delete
Hi, dear Sherry!ReplyDelete
I knew Bubba was fibbing when he told you he threw away the garbage can. It is a proven fact that it is impossible to get the trash collectors to take a garbage can with them, even if you want them to! :)
Haha! We have an outside trash can that holds the majority of the garbage. The inside one is much smaller. That's the one he tried to toss.Delete
But I see the strategy! Brilliant, Bubba.ReplyDelete
I'm sure he thought he'd outsmart me on that one.Delete
Oh boy, Bubba got into trouble on that one! He tried to find a solution to everything! :)ReplyDelete
Yes. Although sometimes his solutions are questionable.Delete
He's priceless Sherry, your son will get on in life.ReplyDelete
I hope so. He has to keep a positive outlook.Delete
It was a good try on Bubba's part.ReplyDelete
Yes, it was.Delete
The boy is smart! ;)ReplyDelete
Yes, he is.Delete
Ah! But there is no end to trash. Nice try, though. ;)ReplyDelete
I wish there was an end to trash!Delete
lol always need a garbage can. Nice try though.ReplyDelete
Or he needs to find a magic wand that can just make garbage disappear.Delete
I think he should probably become a lawyer since he's so good at finding loopholes!ReplyDelete
He'd be a great lawyer. He's interested in politics, too. Maybe that's what he'll be someday.Delete
Of course, you could have just piled the garbage in his room. I mean, it has to go somewhere. And since he thought that getting rid of the can was a solution...ReplyDelete
Haha! Sure. If he tries that trick again, I'll pile the garbage in his room. (Sad thing is, he probably wouldn't care.)Delete
Grief, you have to hand it to him.ReplyDelete
He comes up with some good ones.Delete
Ha! Funny guy.ReplyDelete
That he is.Delete
Kids are so funny!ReplyDelete
Yes, they are.Delete
Hope Bootsy inspected the can first!ReplyDelete
I'm sure he did!Delete
It was worth a shot. ;-)ReplyDelete
Yes. It was a nice try.Delete
Too funny. That boy is always thinking.ReplyDelete
He thought it was worth a shot.Delete
This is something one of my boys would so do! Clever kiddos!ReplyDelete
I bet a lot of kids would try this if they thought of it!Delete
Sherry, I see you have to be very precise in with your instructions. Bubba's antics make me laugh. :-)ReplyDelete
Lol... he's inventive, I'm not letting Valentina get this idea.. haha xoxReplyDelete
Smart thinking. He sure deserves credit there. :) I don't like taking the trash out either.ReplyDelete
