The whole story

Part One:
My daughter glides up the driveway, a disgusted look on her face.

"Mom! C and I were riding our scooters together on the sidewalk and I got this STUFF on my ankle! What IS that?"

She has dark green goo on her ankle. I don't know what it is. I tell her it must be wet grass or mud--though it hasn't rained in days--and tell her to go wash it off.

Part Two:
My son glides up the driveway, wearing a huge smile.

"Mom! I just ran over a caterpillar! Wanna see?"

Lory, you need to keep that one. That one is perfect for the stories in the "soup and your soul books" Send in that one. I laughed silently for so long. I could so see that one. Thanks, N

EWWWW!!! That was funny though. It sure is funny seeing how different two kids can be. I have to say I would probably be like N, but don't ever tell me what it really was, just let me think it was grass or mud.

That is so funny, in a gross sort of way!
