Yes, But Is It G Rated?

The kids and I rented movies the other night when Sam was working. They picked up a brochure on the counter that advertises what new releases are coming out. On the way home Becky was reading the Build A Bundle savers coupon on the back.

Wow, mom! You get 2 new releases, POPZ, p0rn, and a sweet treat. That's a great deal!

What?! Give that here! (As I frantically grab across the van and hastily read the coupon) It says popcorn!

Yeh, that's what I said, popcorn.

No, you said p0rn.

Oh.

Good grief. If they're gonna misread something they should at least make sure they're not going to give me heart failure over it.

I remember telling my mother spelling words that I had to learn and I said horror. She thought I meant the friendly woman word. I can still she her swerving across the road.

You know that in my house, that would not have been an accidental misread...they would have said something like that on purpose!

Whoops :)

Hey, at least you proved that your heart is still working and can withstand a mini heart attack, right? I love the mis-speaks we get sometimes!

But what fun would that be? I'm glad you didn't wreck the car from shock.

Karen Deborah said...

BWAHAHAHA!!!

When I was a toddler, my mom apparently almost wrecked the car when I pointed to a big truck and said "big .... [insert eff noise here]uck!"

A child after my own heart.

After reading your more current post, I understand where Becky gets this. :)

Sorry. Really tired.

I dunno...the minty white chocolate popcorn I only allow myself to make at Christmas time is like food p0rn. Maybe that's what they meant...
