SITS Back to Blogging - My First Post, Revisited

This week, I am participating in the Back to Blogging event, over at SITS. By doing so, I have a chance to give Thelma and Louise a new home! Not the two wacko chicks in the convertible,  but an awesomely beautiful washer and dryer combo from Electrolux! This event is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.Anyway, here goes...


Well I Swunney!

I'm sure there must be other folks that use this phrase, but I haven't bumped into one in a long, long, time. Heck, I don't think I have used it in years, until the other day...

Tallen had spilled a drink on his pants and we went to the dryer to get him some dry ones. His clothes are always in the process of being laundered. It goes like this... I go into his room and find every stitch of clothing that he owns thrown all over the room. The dresser drawers are completely empty. I sigh and ask, " Tallen, why did you make this mess?" He always has the same reply, "That's not a mess, Mama. That is my clothes!" I can never be sure what he has used to wipe up a spill, marked on, or possibly even peed on. So I scoop them all up, wash them, dry them, fold them, put them away, and the whole process begins anew.

So anyway, there I am changing his pants and I realize that he has also spilled some on his shirt. Without thinking, I said, " Well I swunney! Your shirt's wet too!" The look on his face was priceless. It was obvious that he was scanning his brain but just could not find the word "swunney" in there anywhere. So he chose the closest word he could find. Finally he said," Mama, please don't call me Salami." I nearly split my sides laughing!
