slippery foot dangerous fall

As I was putting the girls to bed, Z starts crying inconsolably.   I tried the usual measures of hugging, rocking and reassuring her that she is just tired or probably ate too much candy, but it wasn’t working.

Finally, after much coaxing,  I managed to get her to explain her blubbering.

“Mom, s-s-sometimes, when my friends at school fall, I laugh,” she wailed.

I find myself bemused, waiting for her to continue.

“Sometimes, I laugh even if they get huuuuuuuuurt!”

At this point I am trying to suppress my own laughter.

“I’m a t-t-terrible person, and I can’t heeeeelp it!” she sobbed.

At this point, I explained to her that this is a natural human response, and that there is even an entire television show (America’s Funniest Home Videos) dedicated to this very phenomenon.  She looked at me skeptically and I am pretty sure she is still convinced she is going to hell for this.

    Awww… poor Z! Bless her heart. She must be very sensitive. I’m not quite sure what you can do to convince her…find reruns on YouTube?? 😉

Come on in and browse. The biscuits were made fresh this morning, the Slush Puppie machine was just refilled with a new bottle of red syrup, and we have the biggest selection of bait this close to town.

I meant it that way.
