Oh, THOSE Eyes

Driving home today, Laura was looking at a library book when she came across something so shocking that her poor 5 year old brain just couldn’t take it: someone had written in the book. Being the stickler for the rules that she is, Laura was appalled. APPALLED! She demanded that I turn around and read what had been written (perhaps in an attempt to track down the perp and dole out some justice). I informed her that sadly, I was driving, and could not turn around to look. In her most exasperated tone, she said, “Well, turn on your back eyes then!”

I’m afraid I had to decline.

Well, you've blown it now. How can you ever tell her you have eyes in the back of your head if you just admitted to her you don't?!?

PS- The word I had to verify to post this is "toxin." I want a happier word next time. Like "tulip" or "butterfly" or I would even accept "chocolate milkshake with whipped cream on top." Next I'm going to get sarin or tabun or soman or lewisite, or maybe even botulism (botox anyone?) or even worse the dreaded Vx. And that is what the word verification will say, "the dreaded Vx." Sort of like the "dread pirate Roberts" but not nearly as cute.

Oddly enough, I've never told her that I have eyes in the back of my head. Her teacher is the one is told her that, apparently she threatens to use them all the time. And don't worry, I didn't deny their existence, just refused to use them at that time.

PS. At least you got an actual word. On your blog all I ever get is gibberish.
