OT - Throwback Thursday
This has been a loooooong week. I've spent most of the day running here, there, and everywhere and am FINALLY sitting down. Unfortunately, I'm on a mucho boring conference call. HAVE to be on it, but cannot contribute to it. So.....
Throwback Thursday! Do you have any favorite Fall memories?
When I was a kid, there was one big thing we did in Fall: Fall Cleanup. That involved housecleaning AND cleaning up the yard.
My siblings and I had to take turns: some helped Mom in the house and some helped Dad outside. As a kid, I wanted to be outdoors as much as possible and thought that cleaning up the yard was oodles more fun than housecleaning!
One year, my sisters and I were the ones outside helping Dad. Dad had a fire going and did some fence repairs. I was picking up loose sticks/branches and my sisters were raking big piles of leaves. Dad told us to take a break and went inside for a few minutes. My sisters decided it would be fun to jump in the leaf piles (I was too busy poking the fire).
They did their jumping and rolling, then sat down to wait for Dad.
#1: What's that smell?
#2: ~sniffs~ Ew! It smells like dog sh!t! (Dad wasn't around, so...)
#1: Ew, it DOES smell like dog sh!t!
~they both got up on their knees, looked around, did not SEE any dog sh!t, and sat back down~
At that point, sister #2 wrapped her arms around her knees and..... that dog poop was all over the knees of her jeans. It was right in front of her and when she got up to look for it, stuck her knees right in it. ~shrieks~
Sister #1 laughed like a hyena! Until she slapped her hand on her knee....smack dab in dog poop. ~shrieks~
Naturally, that started the dancing around and "oh it's SO GROSS" and "it's on my HANDS" and frantic wiping of hands on grass... while I laughed and laughed and laughed.
