To make up for the other day's rant, here's something which will bring a wry smile to the lips of every mother.
A far more accurate account of the events of that fateful morning chez the three bears..
Baby bear goes downstairs, sits in his small chair at the table, and he looks into his small bowl. It is empty.
"Who's been eating my porridge?" he squeaks.
Daddy Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl and it is also empty.
"Who's been eating my porridge?!?" he roars.
Mummy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and yells,
"For God's sake, how many times do we have to go through this with you idiots? It was Mummy Bear who got up first. It was Mummy Bear who woke everyone in the house. It was Mummy Bear who made the coffee. It was Mummy Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night and put everything away. It was Mummy Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch the newspaper and croissants. It was Mummy Bear who set the damn table. It was Mummy Bear who put the bloody cats out, cleaned the litter boxes, gave the cats their food, and refilled their water. And now that you've decided to drag your sorry bear- asses downstairs and grace Mummy Bear with your grumpy presence, listen carefully, because I'm going to say this
I HAVEN'T MADE THE DAMNED PORRIDGE YET !!!!"
I was just thinking. For a Brit you sure have an American sense of humor.ReplyDelete
I'm not sure I quite see how that joke is particularly American. Mothers always have endless lists of tasks to do and someone is always waiting for something, so I think the spirit of it is quite universal actually.
I agree......with gl'sd!!!ReplyDelete
