    It’s all fun and games until someone gets the hose.

    September 17, 2007

    K:  Do you know what your son did?
    D:  No.  (turning to The Boy) What did you do?
    The Boy: I gived Zinni a baf, Dad.
    K:  (incredulous that this man missed this one) I mean, you were right there trimming the trees 20 feet away.
    D:  Yeah, but I didn’t know what was going on.
    The Boy:  I gived Zinni a baf, Dad.
    D:  That’s great!
    K:  Uh, not so much. He wandered off and then I heard the dog whining.
    The Boy:  I gived Zinni a baf, Dad.
    D:  Zinni probably needed a bath.
    K:  Um, he had his lead wrapped around the pole so he couldn’t get away.
    The Boy:  I gived Zinni a baf, Dad.

    The Husband started to laugh.

    D:  Well, I guess he had a captive bather.
    K:  Except he was using the yellow hose.
    D:  So?
    K:  The yellow hose that has good pressure.  You really didn’t hear the dog whining?
    D:  I guess I did, but then I was trimming the trees.
    K:  Yeah, he was flipping out because The Boy was giving him a “baf” from about 2 feet away with a hose with a lot of pressure.
    D:  Oops. 
    The Boy: (because clearly we are deaf) I gived Zinni a baf, Dad.
    D: Poor Zinni.

    You think we could just keep track of The Boy once in a while. There are two adults living in this house. I mean, it’s not like Zinni and I are friends these days but I know how it feels to be unable to get away from The Boy. So I saved him. It’s only a matter of time before he’s returning the favor by dumping the trash can on the kitchen floor.

      I’d start to worry when the dog works the invisible fence collar over the Boy’s neck and starts chasing him around the yard like a wayward sheep.

      They say paybacks are a bitch 🙂

      As long as Zinni’s poop doesn’t end up in The Boy’s potty, I think you’re good.

      Sounds like a bad prison movie to me.

      What does he charge for twin beagles? Does he clip nails?
