This morning here in the U.K, I made a particularly early start as I needed to leave early to attend my daughters parents evening teacher consultation.
Sarah Kennedy was on the radio (Radio 2) and long a champion of kids say the funniest things, she still receives mail from parents and grandparents alike mortifying teenagers and older ones with tales of when they were young.
This mornings made me smile in particular so I though I’d share – imagine the scene – a small boy and his mother sitting on a bus. On the seat in front of them, a bald man and next to him another man with one of those ’70′s hairstyles with hair up to the ceiling.
The little boy said in a rather loud voice “Mummy, you’d think they’d share the hair!”.
Well I’m sure, particularly if you’re a parent, there are moments when you’d just love the ground to open up and swallow you quickly and if you’re not a parent, then chances are you’ve still had the odd moment when you’d gladly fall down a crack in the pavement!
So do tell – what was your ‘ground opening’ moment?
