TMI.

so, we're selling our cars. this weekend a prospective buyer, an older gentleman, contacted us, expressed interest in one of our vehicles and made arrangements to meet up with us and give the car a spin. the morning of the intended meeting, the prospective buyer called at 7:30 AM and stated that he had a medical emergency and wouldn't be able to meet up with us until later in the day. matt, expressing general concern, asked the man if the man was okay. the prospective buyer replied that yes, he was okay, but his recent circumcision started "acting up," and he needed to tend to it.

take all the time you need, sir.

and i just thought this was funny... go ahead, judge me:

Torturing children is an art that will bring you and Matt much joy over the years. Love it!

Jaime said...

I concur. Take your time, dude. Blech. & as for scaring your kids- I'm all about it & my husband has to chastise me quite often. But really- who doesn't get a kick out of it?!

So what convinced the old dude to take the plunge now? I mean, he's made it this long without the procedure....wow.

And, torturing kids is the best way to build their character. So really it's in Fox's best interest if you think about it.

It takes my children an 8 count until they stop their frenzied screams after I start "daddy's noisies" ie Bike, lawnmower, blower, shredder, snowblower, shop vac, saws and drills. My kids are going to grow up thinking all I did was scare them to death on Saturdays.

Lori said...

tee hee, i agree with all the parents. i think half the fun of little kids is laughing and choosing HOW you're going to get that laugh.

and as for that sad little gentleman... did you offer him an icepack included with the car? ;)

dani said...

Oh my gosh, I live to scare or otherwise get a rise or reaction out of my kids, rest assured, no judement was passed. Totally got a kick out of it actually...

Okay, shoes, were you serious about must having? Got them at Nordstrom's two years ago -could get the make and model for a google search if you're serious.

Okay, and totally hilarious about the post-op tmi. Too, TOO funny.

Jami said...

Oh. Um, dang.=p Love the video, you should see Maggie and the Roomba.

Mardi and Jeremey said...

Yeah, that is TMI for sure. Too funny. Typical of boy, cause mischief and run (crawl) from it. :)

Noelle said...

wow. there's a guy that'll give it to you straight.

as for little foxxy going into shock mode... i loved the little wiggle, hands up in the air action when the vac went on. priceless.

when I first read this, I thought, "she means circustance, right?". Nope. I do have a friend who is always acidentally saying inappropriate things. And I thought for a second you were too. I got a kick out of it.

Cute little Fox...Katelyn's afraid of sirens aka firetrucks. Unfortunately for her and more so us we live near a hospital...
At least when they are afraid of something they learn that Mom is always available for hugs...I noticed who turned ON the vacuum...
Lol

old me.
