Hey y’all! How’s everybody doing? It's only Tuesday but I'm already wiped out. Has anyone every figured out a way to make the weekends last just a teeniney bit longer? Sheesh!
I haven’t participated in a True Story Tuesday in a while but today I remembered one I could share. She recently turned 23 years old but today I'm going to tell y'all about the time Katiebug almost made my sister and I require the Heimlich maneuver.
Katiebug is two years older than my sister’s son, David. When the kids were really young, like 4 and 2, we went to lunch at the local Mexican restaurant near the mall.
While we were nibbling on chips & hot sauce, David got a tad squirmy so Katie said she wanted to tell him the story of the Three Little Pigs.
The story began like we all learned it: three pigs, three different houses and them trying their best to avoid the Big, Bad Wolf.
Miss Katie was quite the narrator, let me tell you. She had David nodding his head and sitting perfectly still while she told him the story. My sister and I were grinning and trying to not laugh too much at the dramatic presentation going on in our booth.
You know how the last house the Big, Bad Wolf goes to is the one made of bricks, right? Well, as Katie’s story goes the Wolf huffed and puffed and huffed and puffed and puffed and huffed but couldn’t blow that house down. Then she proceeded to tell wide-eyed David that the Big Bad Wolf got mad and climbed up on the roof to slide down the chimney and get those little piggies. David got a little worried here but she told him it was OK, the little piggies were smart and they had a big pot of water boiling on the fire in the fireplace.
Here is where we both choked on chips and/or our drinks so badly that we thought we wouldn’t make it. That 4-year old little princess told her cousin, and by this time the people listening in the booth behind us, that the mean ol' Big Bad Wolf slid down that chimney and landed in the pot of hot, boiling water and those piggies slammed the lid down quick quick..."And that's how we got WOLF BRAND CHILI."
Oh. Yes. She. Did.
