HOT POTATO

Last night we had baked potatoes for supper.  I was really looking forward to reheating one for breakfast this morning.  The kids were all still in bed when I got ready for work, so after dressing I went straight to the frige and found the biggest foil wrapped potato there was and pulled it out.  It was huge and I was very excited about smothering it in all kinds of carbs and calories!  I peeled back the foil, set the potato in a bowl and got everything ready.  When everything was all layed out on the table I got a knife and tried to cut the potato open.  It crunched!  Huh?  I cut that sucker in half and the truth was revealed.  The potato was raw!  Some little gremlin had wrapped a raw potato in foil and stuck it in the frige with the baked potatoes!  I guess I should have been upset, but I wasn't.  I just stood there thinking, 'dang, that was good, I wish I had thought of that first!'.  I had to eat a much smaller potato for breakfast, but thats okay.  I'm just glad the culprit wasn't around to see my face when I first cut into that spud.

That is so funny-I am like you if I have a choice between laughing or being mad I want to laugh! We like to do things like that in this family-it makes us closer -we are so crazy that we have to get along ,it is us against the world!

Your little demon sounds a lot like my big one.  That's the kind of thing Lester would do... Big old poop head!

Have a great day!

It's our little monsters that give us incredible joy. Though we rarely realize it at the time... I'm so glad your kids have creativity...that's the spark of magic that seems to be missing in our hi-tech world.

Enjoy!

Ispent fifteen minutes searching vainly for my half a bottle of cherry Coke today. No one drank it. It must have just vaporized....
