Eew

Yesterday morning before we went off to have a Family Day (miniature golf, go-karts, batting cages, bumpercars...and a severe allergic reaction for Sarcasm Girl...no day is complete without etc.) Spouse went in to brush his teeth. Imagine his surprise when he discovered a large slug lying in the bottom of his water glass. No trail, no hint of how the creature got there, nothing useful to aid in detection of its point of origin. The girls deny complicity. The slug itself was not much help.

That is Eew... did you throw toothbrushes away and germ free everything. Are you sure the Angels had nothing to do with the slug (because that sounds like something I would have done in my younger years)

But then you’re talking about a girl, who with her friend put Ketchup on our bodies and laid by the side of the road just for fun.

YG might have done it, but I don't think did because she is sensitive to issues of Germs. SG--no way. Too icky.

You can tell my children are two different people in this way: five years ago, when I was cleaning out the basement of my father's house, we came upon an old Victorian horsehair sofa I recall from my childhood (torture to sit on in shorts...all these little hairs sticking straight into ones skinny legs). Mice had consumed pretty much everything except the horsehair cover and the carved wood frame, and as we were discovering we unearthed a perfectly preserved mouse skeleton. The responses of my two separate and distinct daughters"

SG: Eeeeew. Omigod, the poor little thing!

YG: Cooooool. Can I take it to school?

She brought it to her kindergarten class, where the teacher, fortunately, shared her opinion on the coolness of rodent cadavers.

Oh yes, and c.f.blog person? Whoever you are? I object to being called an "Angel." I mean really. And harps went out when the Marx Brothers ended. They were the only thing that made harps cool. I mean really.

Oh yeah, and thanks mom for defending me against such horrible accusations. I am seriously offended here!
