Why is it the funniest things happen when there’s no camera within reach?
The Big Little Man and The Old Soul were outside playing in the backyard the other day. I was indoors with my Little Man. When the Old Soul came skipping through the back door I asked if she’d left her little broey outside alone. “Oops” she said. So I went to the door, not expecting to see anything but a happy little bruiser cruising around the play equipment in the backyard. What I saw certainly would have won me the $10,000 prize on Funniest Home Videos… IF I’d gotten a video of it, that is.
As I opened the door, the sound of wailing filled the air. To the left, I see my Big Little Man coming around the back corner of the house. The front of his shirt fully pulled over his head as though he got stuck halfway through taking it off. Crying, walking like a blind man with his hands out in front of him, covered in… you guessed it… DOG POOP!!!! LOL.
I know… TOTALLY GROSS… but funny as heck! He’s negotiating the backyard obstacles pretty well considering he’s totally blindfolded. He’s moaning and wailing and — as I approach I realize — he’s gagging too. LOL. He’s got poop on his shoes, on his hands and wiped all over his shirt and… I know, this is disgusting… but he’s got spots of poop smeared on his neck too. You can just imagine the mess underneath that shirt!
Turns out, he slipped and fell, hands down, in a heap of dog poop. When he wiped his hands on his shirt he realized his shirt was dirty and reeeeaaaaally smelly so he attempted to take it off. But, because his hands were covered in dog poop and the smell got stronger as the shirt covered his head, he failed to complete the over-the-head part of the shirt-removal maneuver and was outright STUCK… in dog poop! LOL
LMBO (Laughing My Butt Off)! Seriously! Where is the video camera when you need it?
The good mother in me helped him but the bad mother was laughing so hard I was crying the whole time I was cleaning him up — in between our mutual gagging. Lest you think me totally callous, please note, the worse mother would have gotten the video camera to document one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a LONG time.
P.S. The Old Soul doesn’t think this is a bit funny because her brother was carrying one of her little PK dolls when he fell… Unfortunately, the doll looked a bit like the Big Little Guy when we found it lying dirty and smelly next to the incriminating evidence (read: dog poop). I thoroughly cleaned it up but she hasn’t played with it since… LOL
