Me (to #16) – Where did you go?
< Elapsed time 12 minutes, current temperature 22 F. >
#16- I went for a walk.
Me- In other words, you took up smoking.
#16- Did not. Smell my hands.
He already KNOWS the routine.
If I detect an over abundance of cologne, sudden affinity for minty gum, new air freshener, windows rolled down in my car… I’m suspicious.
I’ve been randomly interrogating him since he was around 12.
My eldest two never did it, but THIS one’s my wild child.
I use advanced methods like smelling his fingers, nose, hair and clothing.
I wasn’t born yesterday.
Also, I used to sneak cigarettes myself… from my husband, so I’m experienced.
Anyway, he was clean which is good because he’s already doing time for something else.
The something else didn’t make the inter webs because it was a doozy. Don’t even bother asking.
If you read my blog, you know I refer to #16 as Big Kahunna’s and Jackass #16. Since today is his 17th birthday, he’ll now be known as #17.
He’s my wild child… my mini-me with testosterone.
To celebrate his big day I shall post a few links to his misadventures from the past year.
Happy Birthday #17!!!
