Buttholes and Geeks

*Please note the names have been withheld
and the photo substituted, to protect the guilty.


Once upon a time there was a VERY good mother who had a red-haired 10 year old son. Son and his friend were playing in the backyard when the VERY good mother remembered she had some library books that needed to be returned to the library. The VERY good mother instructed son and his BFF to get into the car to ride with her to the library.

They did as they were told and the threesome began the short drive. Upon pulling to the curb in front of the library, the VERY good mother handed the library books to her red-haired son and told him to drop them into the bookdrop, which was just outside the library door, some 25 feet from the car.
The VERY good mother watched her boy and his BFF drop the books into the bookdrop and scurry back to the car. As the VERY good mother took the car out of the Park gear and was just beginning to pull away from the curb she noticed a middle-aged woman, running from the library toward the car. The library woman was red faced and waving her hands rapidly. . .The VERY good mother lowered the car window to see what was wrong with the obviously, distressed woman.

The angry woman approached the car.

It was reported to the VERY good mother that her red-haired boy and his BFF had SHOUTED into the book drop as they dropped the books into the drop-off slot. The exact words, which had echoed through the quiet library?

"BUTTHOLES AND GEEKS!"

The middle-aged librarian was outraged.

The VERY good mother was shocked and embarrassed.

It was a very long time before the red-haired boy and his family returned to the Public library.

There is no moral to this story,
other than to say "even
VERY good mothers have children
who sometimes do embarassing things".
AND
it makes for great story-telling each year when the
family gathers for holidays.

This could of been a page from my life. Hey, they are kids, and to them it was funny. It is funny to me too. (but I would never admit it to my children)

Guess what I just did? You're right! I just put together my slacker recipe for supper tonight.
