A Wednesday funny

Oh, the joys of having a five year old. And watching how their minds work.

Jason and I were coming back from lunch today, discussing what I'd make for dinner. I asked him to take some chicken strips out of the freezer, and we could put them on the ole' George Foreman and toss them in some Texas Pete Hot Wing Sauce.

Anna Marie pipes up from the back seat, "EEEWWW!"

I asked her not to say "EEEWWW" about something without trying it first, to which she replied:

"You're going to put the strips in Texas pee? EEEWWW!"

When I explained that I'd said "Pete" instead of "pee," she realized she had a joke on her hands.

Since my mother is leaving today for a trip to Texas, I called to tell her. Thought it was most appropriate, ya know?

Anna Marie got on the phone and informed her Gramma that her joke just got funnier each time she told it.

Now, I may have to change my dinner plans - I don't know if I can eat those strips with a straight face.

Kids are just so darned sweet and they say the funniest things without knowing...which makes them all the funnier!
I think I will be thinking about this whenever Bill uses hus Texas Pete hot sauce!
Thanks for the smile!

That's cute! It reminds me of one time when I was in the car with the radio on, and the little girl I babysit was in the back seat. The song "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" came on, and there'a a line in the song that goes:
We walked on (walked on)
To my door (my door)
We walked on to my door
Then we kissed a little more

Well, she then goes "Eewwww! They kissed a little mole??! Yuck!" I explained what the real words were, and she just laughed and laughed. She was about 4 or 5 at the time.
