Unlike this post, which is full of rodent pictures, rodent horrors and rodent humor (for SOME people).
We awoke this morning to a light snow on the ground which kept my husband at home working in his office. We were enjoying a late breakfast together with the children, when Sid announces, “Kids, 23 years ago, I did something that I have never done before.”
The kids are quiet, looking at Sid expectantly.
“I dropped a smoocher on your Mama’s lips.”
Lincoln looks confused. “A what?”
“A smoocher,” Sid clarifies. “Do you know what a smoocher is?”
Lincoln thinks a minute and offers, “A rat?”
Sid stands up, adjusts his shoulders into his most manly posture and states, “I will show you what a smoocher is.”
“Oh no!” I squeal, “No dropping rats on my lips.”
Sid leans down and kisses me on the lips.
Lincoln is un-impressed. “Oh pleeeeeeeze, I’ve seen you do that over 100 times.”
