Mom rarely jokes
she can say the perfect thing
at just the right time!
Like the other day. Her great granddaughter was wailing. Yes, wailing! The sounds coming out of her mouth were more than a cry or wimper. Her face was red. She was visibly mad. No tears though. If she had been on the floor kicking her arms and legs up and down, you could have called it a temper tantrum. Finally, a break in the crying when Lisette looked up at my Mom. She stared her square in those baby blue eyes and calmly said....
After Lisette resumed her crying, I laughed at my Mom. Her dry delivery was priceless. "Do you have fever with that?" I thought it was hilarious. Lisette not so much! I guess I think it's so funny because she's asked me a time or two before.
Use it with someone you know, adult or child. They may think it's amusing. Or, maybe not! Think you'll do it? Leave me a comment and let me know. I've said it to my husband before....once.
Where's the thermometer?
