Come on, STP, Ah Pek and any dads with kids, quick come save me!!!!! HELP!!!!!!
Was at the check-out counter with a trolley load of groceries to feed the battalion because it is school holidays. #2 son (age 14 yrs) asked loudly, “MOM…..what’s this?” with a glint in the eyes. The kind that I know need not need an answer.
Damn, why must they put these colourful little boxes next to the Smarties, M&Ms, Mars bars, Skittles…..Usually, these are placed at very low shelves. I wonder if there are any toddlers who opened them before and blow balloons with it?
Son #1 (16 yo), “Dude, those are fingers gloves.” Two of them were sniggering.
Innocent son #3 (10 yo) is now really, really, super curious, “MOM, WHAT IS THIS, REALLY?”
Son 2 & 3, ‘DUDE, people said it is FINGER GLOVES, you idiot!”
With a trolley of groceries , it takes a mighty loooong time to clear them, right? So, there he was, reading the labels. Heck, I don’t know what the box said ‘cos I never read them. You know what is written OUTSIDE the box?
God, do you know how hard it is to keep a straight face? So, there, have a field time, dads and tell me what you would explain to your kid? No kids? Never mind, imagine. And moms, how do you get out of this sticky situation? Don’t tell me you go into technical details?
