On a very fast train.

Last night we went back to our normal place to walk. It was much nicer.

We only saw two other people the whole time. One was a shirtless man who was running, but did manage a friendly, "Hello!" as he passed. Another was a girl on a bike who not only managed a hello, also commented on what a cute dog I have.

It was much better.

Also? Even though it's on a trail, it's a greenway and there are paths that go many different ways. We took a tough path and climbed up a hill. It was hard, but it made me feel good. Like maybe I can do something. Like there ain't no mountain high enough to keep me from...I don't know. You.

Boy Child said, when we were almost done, "Remember that woman yesterday, mom? Who was talking about your a-s-s?"

So he had heard. Hmm.

"Yep," I said.

"Here's how she was," he jutted his stomach out so he looked about sixteen months pregnant and then began dragging his feet as he trudged along.

"Ooh! Look at me!" he mocked. "I'm feelin' the burn! I've burned one carb! Now I'm going to Taco Bell and get a Nacho platter!"

I suppose I should have told him that it's not nice to make fun of people. That even if people are bitches to us, we should be a bigger person and suck it up and not let it bother us. That, clearly, those women had some self-esteem issues.

But I didn't do any of that.

I laughed until my sides hurt.



I'm probably going to hell.

You've got one funny kid. I still laugh at "Imaginary grandma"

And if you're going to Hell, can we at least stop at Taco Bell on the way there, because now I need some!

Michele said...

Yeah we should teach our kids more respect but I must say, Yay for your son!!! Those women should check behind themselves before commenting on other people. You go girl and keep up the good work.

If you're going to hell for laughing? I'm terrified to find out where I'M going!!!

Lara said...

If you go there, you're going with company. Cause I laughed when you wrote it too.

It's good to teach children compassion, but they also can learn what happens to people who throw stones when they live in glass houses. Looks like your son is learning that... and good for him.

Save me a seat, please?

ROFLMAO. That boy has got it DOWN!

Kim said...

Aaahh! I love that the boy has got his mama's back! No pun intended! I promise!

Being a bigger person is overrated.

It's much funnier to be mean.

This is what I preach to my children.

I'll see you in Hell. I'll be the short guy being spanked by Rachel Rae.

Betsey Booms said...

It's also awesome that he can handle adversity with humor.

So take me to hell, too. I think he's freaking hysterical.

CPA Mom said...

Save me a spot. I laughed my ass off at the one too.

Clearly, He is your mini-me and he must save himself for my Eeyore.

Christie said...

shoot, I would have laughed too.

I am Trish Marie said...

Hey. At least he didn't make fun of them in front of their faces. That should be lesson number one. Always make sure the person you are talking crap about is not in earshot.

Go Boy Child!

Kelly M said...

Boy child is too much! He certainly has a great sense of humor! Good for him..sticking up for his mom!! Yes I agree it is wrong..but sometimes..it is called for!

Stacy said...

A sense of humor will get you far in life. Good to see he has one already. I would have laughed too!!

Angie said...

I laughed too. Then I remembered. . . I just ate lunch at Taco Bell.

Sigh.

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

I'll leave a spot for you next to me in Purgatory. We'll both be there a while if that is enough to warrant a little hot box time.

Heather J. said...

Yes, you are soooo going to hell.
But it'll be so worth it!

Boy child, ROCKS.

He knows laughter is the best medicine for his Mama.

Dawn~a~Bon said...

Jan said...

I would have laughed too- there'll be a lot of us in hell.

SJ said...

beautyishere said...

I read the backstory first, and let me say those women? Were horrid.

And boy child? Is hilarious! :)

Angie said...

Thanks.. You made my day.

I'm Mikey said...

Boy Child makes me laugh too!
Good kid... :)

Julie said...

I love Boy Child - he has most definately inherited your sense of humor. WHat a great kid you have there!

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

Wow! I can hardly wait until he hits the comedy circuit!

I would totally by a ticket to go watch him perform.

That boy is awesome!
Good job Mom!

Blessings.

Catwoman said...

This just makes it official for me: Boy Child for President!

Robyn said...

I am rolling..my sides hurt from laughing. What great kids you have!

frannie said...

well, I would be driving the train there, 'cause my sh*t is crackin' up!!!

Scout's Honor said...

Nope, not hell. Too bad he didn't start busting them at the time. There nothing more honest that a child.

Those bitches must use circus mirrors and think their shit doesn't stink to talk to you the way they did. Again, they will be punished. I think I'm liking a mass of Herpes and genital wart kharma. Maybe a really bad yeast infection that they won't be able to reach because their tent asses are so big.

Jenski said...

Boy Child obviously loves his mom dearly. You certainly will not go straight to hell for laughing. You were merely supporting your son and his sense of humor? ;)

EE said...

I would have done the exact same thing!

Anonymous said...

That was hilarious.

Rachel said...

Amanda said...

I'm burnin' the carbs just reading your blog. That kid is clever!
