The day AFTER my little man slathered himself with Polo cologne he became even more of a chick magnet. (I tell you, even after all these years, I still can't stand the smell of Polo-no matter how good the guy wearing it looks-yeah, yeah...I know...I'm old but I'm not dead yet, am I?) Anyway, where was I? Oh, yeah...Back to school. Day 2- I drive in to pick Mr. Suave and Debonair up. TWELVE little girls come crushing around me. I hear, "Thank you Mrs.K, Thank you Mrs.K, That was really nice of you Mrs.K". uh-huh...say what?...I lift my eyes toward the teacher, Mrs. Long, for help.
Ummmm...what are they all thanking me for I want to know. For the watches. What watches? Those watches! Huh? What??? Now, this is just after Christmas, remember? That was the year that McDonalds gave out watches for $1.00 if you bought a Happy Meal. How Happy does that make you? I bought one for each child (start counting) and secreted it for Christmas, the
grandmother bought one for each child (still counting? we're up to eight now) and the neighbor bought each child one (NOW we are at the magic number of 12-that's how I remember how many girls were in MamasBoy's class because each girl got a watch).
In the morning, before he went to pre-school, MamasBoy asked each of his siblings if he could borrow their watch (I don't think he made it plural-as in watches-I think he just said watch) and take it to school. They all said yes. He gathered them ALL up, took them ALL to school and gave them ALL away. He was the most popular boy at school and the most hated family member when he got home.
When we asked him why he gave all the girls watches that didn't belong to him he had a very simple answer- "I like girls". Ah...yes....so he did...Hmmmm....I must check with TheSecretAgent and find out if he slathered himself with Polo and gave her a watch to seduce her.... Oh, yes...and if he did....did he buy it or "borrow" it?
Now, if you are very good, and promise not to spit on your watch face to clean it off, tomorrow I will tell you the story of MamasBoy and ChingChing!
