QotD: The Dog Ate It October 22, 2008

What's the best excuse you've ever heard?

One day on the kitchen floor I found one of those little squishy fabric softener refill packets with two holes in it, a skewer next to it and all the softener squeezed out onto the floor. Covering it all was a small towel.

So since I didn't do it and Lizzie was the only other one at home, I asked her what she knew about it. She was three at the time.

She told me that she thought the skewer must have somehow bounced off the kitchen table (with speed) and stabbed the softener packet that had fallen on the floor. Stabbed it twice.

    Kids! – they come up with all kinds of excuses. Funny that she thought I might even believe it.

    Naughty, naughty skewer..

  4. LeendaDLL Says:

    Doesn't surprise me – I've often heard that fabric softener packets and skewers are mortal enemies.

  5. cat Says:

    softener was probably asking for it

  6. Steve Betz Says:

    Of course it did! Excellent maneuver.

  7. cat Says:

    she's gone on to do well in creative writing

    Lol…lucky your daughter wasn't around to witness that then, could have been dangerous… psychopathic skewer n' all…

  9. cat Says:

    and we won't even talk about the time she started a fire in her bedroom

    lol. did you immediately hire an exorcist for your poltergeist?

    What I really love is, putting aside the whole question of skewers and all, just what the hell was this all about anyway?Wicked vampire fabric softener killed, and buried under blanket?Two eyes poked in it to give a face, and tucked up to sleep?Kids are so utterly weird.

  12. cat Says:

    and then what I like is how in the end she covered it with a towel as if I'd never look under there!

  13. cat Says:

    if I did, it didn't work – the poltergeist has been blamed for many things over the years because – no one else ever did "it".

  14. elissabethe Says:

    That's awesome. At what age do we grow out of covering our eyes and thinking everything has disappeared?

  15. cat Says:

    yes, it'd be good if we could do that forever, when things get out of hand, just cover them up and hope they'll either go away, or someone else will deal with it.

  16. Waterbaby Says:

    of course not. what a relief that the woeful abdication of responsibility isn't exclusively an American trait.

  17. SweetMisery Says:

    I never got away with it. I can't look you straight in the eyes and lie

  18. HAHAHA!!!about a year ago my teen age niece was left alone in her mom's car while mom went in to grab something from Aunts home. Niece was in the middle of a pretty good size teen tantrum. When mom came back to the car the windshield had a large crack reaching all across the glass. Niece swore something fell from the sky and broke the glass, she did not kick it!

  19. The eraser from the end of my mechanical pencil was missing. I asked my daughter (a three-year-old at the time) if she'd seen it.
    Nope. Didn't see it, but she'd help me look. As we were both on our hands and knees looking under tables, etc., daughter exploded with a whopper sneeze. I looked, and hanging out of her nose was the missing eraser. :"What's THAT?" I asked, pointing.
    "Snog," she says, unable to say, "snot."
    Mechanical pencil and the recovered eraser went into the trash…after I regained vision after wiping tears of laughter out of my eyes.
    Kids are hilarious.

    lolol – funny little things. My son pushed a piece of foam up his nose once and it stayed there for months (we didn't know it was there) and he just kept having all these ear infections and he was smelly. One day he blew his nose and out it came.

  21. cat Says:

    OMG bet she crapped herself when it cracked. lol

  22. she still swears some mystery thing fell from the sky, she lies all the time, but never very well. Hahah! I can only imagine all the blood draining from her face when she cracked it, Oy!
