Problem Solving

I wish I took this picture. I wish that was Pearl in the hat. Let's pretend.

I am standing in the kitchen reading the microwave instruction on the Trader Jose’s taquito box. Bob appears at my side carrying his plastic pumpkin.

“Can I have a candy now please?”

“No, not right now, it’s almost dinner.”


“No and you already had some of your Halloween candy today.”

“Not right now I didn’t.”

“No, Buddy.”

“It will give me a tummy ache?”

“It might, if you eat too much.”

“That’s OK. Daddy showed me a good place to do barfing.”


  1. I laughed out loud at that. I hope it was the terlit (that was my bronx pronunciation of toilet in honor of the Yankees)and not the flower beds.

  2. Smart kid. I had the same convo with myself about an hour ago. I caved.

  3. I love coming to your blog every morning when I sit down with my breakfast at my computer.
    I'm always choking on my almond butter toast.
    (I also love that one of your tags is "bodily fluids")

  4. I don't want to say this is child abuse, but isn't one of the rites of passage of childhood eating Halloween candy until you barf?

  5. I love where you ended this little story! With absolutely no explanation!

    One can only wonder...
