I had just 'blessed out' my four little angels with crooked halos for some misbehavior of which I can no longer remember. Feeling a little sad about the heaviness around us all that resulted, I opened the refrigerator to prepare lunch. Spying a jar of bean sprouts, a crazy idea entered my head, and without further ado, I proceeded to stuff a bean sprout up each of my nostrils. (Yes, I really did this) Then nonchalantly sat down at the table with the 'tails' hanging out. You can imagine the peals of laughter that followed and our droopy little home was happy once again.
Mission accomplished, I removed the little beans by the tails. But alas! one of the tails broke off and I COULD NOT GET THE BEAN OUT OF MY NOSE! Panic set in. I imagined myself sitting in the emergency room waiting for the doctor to vacuum it out, or whatever else they do for such cases... Can you imagine?! It truly was an awful moment. I tried to avoid sniffing and finally, sanity regained, I gave a nice blow in a kerchief and out popped the bean. My three year old stared at me wide-eyed. I know what you are thinking, dear reader. I thought it too, and still do. I am praying fervently that the little chap's memory has had a lapse until he is much older!
This concludes my tale of stupidity and hilarity. And in case you are wondering if I plan to post a picture of the event for posterity sake, think again!
