Sometimes I should really not say anything at all........

I'm not sure I've mentioned this, but I have a really bad habit of reading things aloud.

Yeah, you know stuff.

Anything that catches my eye.

Random signs, bumper stickers, street signs, notices on windows etc.

Often the most inappropriate things, at the most inappropriate times.

Like yesterday.

Dropping the kids off at school, we pulled up behind a big, dirty, rusty 4WD that had a bumper sticker which read:

"My farts smell like fish guts"

The kids just looked at me.

Nev looked at me.

There was silence.

And then everyone burst out laughing.

At me.

(Not at the lunatic who actually printed that bumper sticker, or the lunatic who thought it would be a great idea to stick it on the back of his car).

"They aren't that bad Mummy," says Harri scrambling out the car door, "pretty bad but not that bad" agreed Ellie getting out the other door.

I looked at Nev.

He was still laughing.

Nearly fell out the car door.

"Love ya babe" he said when he could catch his breath.

Oh my goodness girl, I am not sure about my fart's smelling like fish guts but I just wet my pants from laughing. And are we from the same mold Helen? I do the same thing all the time when I am driving.
