Bad Mama

Here's the scene; Driving to preschool this am, crazy lady in huge SUV comes around the corner at probably 40mph and totally in MY lane. It was a close call but somehow I restrained myself. And by restrained I mean I only called her one filthy curse word instead of the dozen or so that were on the tip of my tongue. After a moment of silence, a voice of wisdom from the back seat...


"Mama, you can't say those bad words."

"I know, Aidan, I'm sorry."

"You've got to control your temperature, Mama."

"I know, Aidan, I'm sorry."

"If you can't stop talking like that I'm just gonna have to have Daddy drive me to preschool and you can just sit at home while we're gone."

Oh, shut up! Do you know how many creative four letter word combinations your Daddy spewed while driving in Chicago? And 'You can just sit home while we're gone'? Puh-leeze! Bring it, kid. Any. Day.

My son is such a backseat driver and he's only 2. It's scary that he pays so much attention...hopefully he can't hear me calling the other driver's names.!

Go ahead you cheeky little *&$@^())!! I'll stay home and let your dad sit in the carpool lane all day every day! I hate carpool.

In the words of Tommy Lee Jones, "Where'd (he) learn to talk like 'at?"
