Talkin' About...I laughed so hard when...

This is my first time linking up to "Talkin' About Thursdays", hosted by Genny at My Cup 2 Yours

The topic is to be something that made you laugh hard, and after digging deep, I found something that you didn't have to "be there" to get, LOL.

My son is 20 years old now, and I'm sure he totally appreciates that I have had so much FUN raising him *snicker*...

When I was a single Mom, he was in public school, and I remember this particular day in Kindgergarten...

I was waiting in the "car loop", about 5 cars back from the pick up location, when I spotted my precious little boy.  He stood there all of 3 feet tall, proud as could be.  That day he was wearing his blue jeans and a blue, red and white striped, collared short sleeve top...I remember it vividly, and I still have it in a box somewhere.  I could see there was something wrong with his shirt and I focused in on it, when I realized what it was...

It was shredded. 

Yup.  You read that right.  He stood there, all smiles, as if nothing in the world was different from that morning when I had dropped him off.  Backpack over his shoulders, macaroni art in his hands, and the entire front of his shirt, shredded.  Now, we're not talking about a little rip or tear, it literally looked as though a tiger had repeatedly clawed his shirt.  I began to cry....oh, they weren't sad tears.  I was sitting my car all alone looking like a crazy woman because I was laughing out loud so hard that my face was covered in tears.

As the cars began to move, I knew I had to compose myself and become "Serious Mom" before I got to the pick up point.  I wiped my tears and choked back the laughter as the teacher opened up the door and my happy-go-lucky little guy plopped himself into the car.  I asked very non-chalantly what had happened to his shirt, to which he replied, (as if it were a normal occurance)...

"My scissors got loose."

Watch out for those crazy scissors, they are lurking, just waiting for an unsuspecting child to turn their heads!  LOLOLOL...

Have a Laughter filled day!
