What if....


What if you took your kids to Maverick for an Icee?
What if you secured the plastic domed lids to the cups and very carefully dispensed the Wild Cherry (even though they whined for the Coke flavor)?
What if you placed the long red straw into the hole in the top and handed it to the four year old with a warning: "Don't spill it!"
What if he didn't spill it?
What if, instead, he promptly BLEW INTO THE STRAW AS HARD AS HE COULD!!! Then looked up at you with that "What-the-heck-just-happened" look on his face as Wild Cherry slush dripped off his face, his shirt, and his hands?

What would you do?

I'd probably do whatever you did.

Laugh, of course!

I'm with Kristina. I'd laugh my butt off.

I would laugh. And then, when no one was looking, i'd lick the cherry icee off his face. Cause, you know, that's good stuff. You don't want to waste it. :)

If I was in the car, I would probably scream at him and turn in to my mother ranting and raving for an hour.

If I was still in the store (YAY for 99 cent ICEE's!) I would give him a look like "you are in so much trouble. Wait til we get in the car so I can yell at you."

How could you not just laugh at that kid! Maybe ask them what they thought would happen, and if I'm feelin' saucy... teach them about the laws of physics and Icee displacement when an outside object (air from lungs) is forced upon said object. :)

I'd pee my pants laughing and then there would be two messes to clean up!

It's a toss up between laugh and kill him.

Amber said...

I'd laugh hysterically and wonder if I should strip him down immediately or wait until we got closer to the car.

Stacy said...

That is so funny! I'm LMAO! I would probably be so mad and shout a few expletives and then laugh so hard and pray that I had my camera nearby!

I'd laugh my butt off and then make sure to blog about it.

Hello? Beuhler?
Anyone... Anyone?

I'd totally laugh my butt off. I wouldn't be able to help myself.
