Mmm … Crunchy!

September 26th, 2005

This just happened. I had just finished eating the delicious salad that my wife, Sara, had made for lunch (lately she's taken to making a huge salad each morning, taking half with her to work and leaving half for me) when I noticed there was a message waiting for me. (I'd turned off the ringer on my cellphone while recording some voiceover for an upcoming "Wandering Josh" segment.)

It was Sara, calling from the teacher's lounge of the marvelous public school where she's taught for the past two decades. "Just wondering if you ate your salad yet," her message said. "I was just having my salad, and I noticed there were aphids in it." ...

Which reminds me of something our now eight-year-old son said to Sara one morning last year: "Um, Mommy, I never mentioned this, but a few weeks ago I dropped your toothbrush in the toilet." ...

Which, in turn, reminds me of something a youngster at Sara's school once said to the principal. "Mr. Warfield, " the child indignantly complained, "James says I'm a tattle-tale!"

    Actually, what he said to me was, “Mommy, I’ve been meaning to tell you for ages– your toothbrush fell in the toilet.” He was four.
