What in the TARNATION?

ANDREW HAD HIS APPOINTMENT TO HAVE THAT LITTLE CAVITY FILLED. HE WAS SUCH A TROOPER. HE WENT BACK TO THE ROOM WHILE I SAT OUTSIDE THE DOOR. HE WAS SUCH A BIG BOY. NOT ONE HINT OF FEAR OR HESITATION WHEN THE DENTAL TECHNICIAN CAME TO TAKE HIM. IN JUST A FEW MINUTES HE WAS DONE AND GETTING A PRIZE FOR BEING SO GOOD.

SOMETIME BEFORE THE NUMBING AGENT WORE OFF ANDREW BIT HIS LIP TERRIBLY. IT WAS SO SWOLLEN AND RED AND TURNED IN TO A BIG NASTY ULCER. A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER IT STILL LOOKED PRETTY BAD BUT WAS HEALING UP FINE. WHILE WE WERE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME HE WAS TELLING HIS LITTLE BUDDY AUSTIN ABOUT HIS LIP. THE CONVERSATION WENT SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

AUSTIN: "WHAT IS THAT ON YOUR MOUTH"

ANDREW: "I BIT MY LIP IN THE CAR AND TAR FLEW EVERYWHERE. IT SQUIRTED OUT OF MY LIP."

AUSTIN JUST LOOKED CONFUSED AND TURNED TO KEEP PLAYING. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, THOUGHT, WHAT ON EARTH IS HE TALKING ABOUT? TAR? I THOUGHT IT MUST HAVE BLED A LOT WHEN HE BIT IT, BUT HE NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE BLOOD AND I NEVER SAW BLOOD ON ANYTHING...OH WELL. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE NEXT DAY THAT I REMEMBERED THAT MARK HAD SAID, "ANDREW, YOU BIT THE TAR OUT OF YOUR LIP" , WHEN HE SAW HOW BAD IT WAS. ANDREW TOOK THAT LITERALLY AND EMBELLISHED HIS STORY TO HIS LITTLE FRIEND. HOW FUNNY! I KNEW ANDREW WAS FULL OF A LOT OF THINGS...I DID NOT KNOW TAR WAS ONE OF THEM.

CHECK OUT MORE FUNNY KIDS AT MARY'S. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO TUESDAYS OVER AT HER LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD.

LOL! I was totally confused as well until you clarified that. I love these little guys.

hope the football season goes well, without too much tar leaking all over...

That is too funny...sounds just like a little boy...I laughed so hard...I wish that I could have kept up with all that my kids said and did as they grew up...nothing like blogging back then, but when I did write something down, I always lost it...and now my memory is horrible.

Did you show Mark Kim's feet in the mirror? I laughed so hard, I was falling to the ground...it was a good thing that when I had the hysterectomy, I told them to do a bladder suspension, otherwise, I probably would have wet my pants right there on the playground...that would have been okay...I would have blamed it on some kid.

Love ya,
Tammy

Kimi said...

LOL...that is the funniest thing I have hear in a long time!

TAR? Geeze Mark I don't even saw Tar....please...were you raised by hillbillies? Is your uncle Jed Clampett?

Not only does Andrew repeat what his dad says his stories swell like his dads stories do!

I have chosen this to be pick on Mark night...and it sure is FUN!

Love you Ames,
Kimi

Too cute! I may end up blogging Nita's stuff so it's public and can do the Tuesday thing. She is a riot...maybe I'll move all the "GIRL TALK" stuff to it's own thing where that's all it is, we'll see. Great he did so well, she cried like a baby and freaked out when she had her fillings!

Okay Amy, I happened upon your blog through Kim and Tami's and until this moment was "lurking", but OMG that tar story is hilarious! I'm having fun catching up on your precious boys; they are so big! I'm new to blogging, but will let you know when I get pics, etc. up of my crew. Great to "see" you, Julie
