My son (The Imp) and his BFF have been friends for almost seven years. They have gone through, elementary school, middle school and now in high school together. His BFF lives a convenient house over from us, so more often than not, they are together on a weekend. Fun times need to be had, right? Watching them grow up and turn into young men has been a wondrous thing… but often a wondrous thing full of oddities and laughter (as you’ll see below).
*Bump Thump Thump Bang Whack…. Groan*
Me: What’s going on in there?
Son’s BFF: He’s not being a very cooperative dead body.
Me: … … but everything’s okay right?
Son’s BFF: Yeah, everything’s good.
Me: Let me hear from the dead body as well.
The Imp: I’m good!
Me: Okay, carry on (bumping and thumping resumes) *looks at The Sprite who’s sitting beside me on the couch* Did you hear me ask to hear from the dead body?
The Sprite: *Shakes her head and giggles* Mommy’s silly.
Indeed I am a silly goose. Life is a thing to be enjoyed and since none of us are getting out alive we might as well laugh and smile while we can.
