Question of the Day

Questions are always presented at the most inconvenient times.

My kids and I were invited to go to a local theme park with some friends today.  I accepted the thoughtful invitation, due to a bout of temporary insanity, on the conditions we sneak in our own food. 

We approached the security check point, also know as the food police, located outside of the front gate. I surrendered our belongings over to the bag inspector before we were waved through the metal detectors one by one.  He gave me back my keys and cell phone, then proceeded to violate my forth amendment rights and examine each zippered section of my backpack and purse. 

"Have a nice day in the park Ma'am," the security guard said as he handed my bag back to me.

I let out a sigh of relief.

But, I didn't get two steps away before Rio decided to open his mouth...

"Mom! Did he find our sandwiches you hid in the backpack?"  Rio inquired at full volume.

I quickly covered his mouth and pushed him towards the front gate.


  1. I can relate to this! LMAO! That's exactly how our food was confiscated late time!

  2. Oh dear. I think you need one of those vests with secret pockets for next time and a muzzle? Just kidding. He sounds adorable.

  3. :) They all do that, don't they?

  4. You're so correct. Kids do ask the darnedest things the most inconvenient times.
    They make for great stories later on and on blogs!!

    I found you with the ‘surprise me’ button. I’m a new follower of yours. I'd love to have you check out my take on the A to Z Challenge, comment and follow, if you'd like.

  5. Yup. Leave it all up to the children to spill the beans. Never leave the problem of world starvation in their hands. OMG. We'd be in trouble.

  6. Hah! Of course that would happen. Kids... sheesh. ;)

  7. Love it! Hopped over here from the Sunday hop. Hope you will follow me too!

  8. Thanks for sharing that story.

    I'm starting up a 'Critiquing Crusaders' program, where participants in the Second Crusade can find other writers to exchange critiques with or form critiquing circles. If you're interested, come by The Kelworth Files to check it out!
