I Couldn't Make This Up

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on my back deck with my mom while Monkeygirl played in the yard with the neighbor kids, Sam and Seth.

Mom noted that Seth reminded her of the 'Deliverance' kids. Shortly after her observation the following conversation took place:

Seth: Hey Betsey, you know what?

Me: What?

S: I went to a Vegetable (festival) yesterday and got my face painted and it was a dinosaur, it was cool.

Me: That is cool. (turn to my mother, spit out half a sentence)

S: Hey Betsey, you know what?

Me: What, Seth?

S: I was at your house last night watching movies and Jason teased me a lot. He does that all the time and I play along with him.

Me: That's true, he does.

S: Yeah. Hey Betsey, you know what?

Me: What?

S: I got a black shirt with a silver soccer ball on it and some other stuff, it's really cool.

Me: That is cool. (Look at my mother who is laughing, I start to speak)

S: Hey Betsey, you know what?

Me: What, Seth?

S: My dog is almost two, but still acts like a pup. Yup, she sure does have a lot of pup in her, but you know what?

Me: What?

S: We used to have another dog but she got sick and died. It was really sad... And she was bleeding and everything. You wanna know where she was bleeding at?

Me: (to my mom, Oh God) To Seth: Um, sure buddy, where was she bleeding?

S: In her cracker and you know what? It was even spurting too. All over the place.

My mother is laughing and snorting uncontrollably...

Me: Um Seth, we're going to go inside now.

S: Okay, bye Betsey.

Me: Bye Seth.

Want to know what?

Sorry- couldn't resist! Sounds a lot like my life- kids at school always want to tell me way too much...
