Day 11 Question 11: What is the silliest most off the wall thing you’ve ever done in your life?
I just asked my kids to answer this question because I couldn’t think of anything on my own. They made me laugh so hard with each of their answers. For now, I will tell you about an incident which my second daughter told me stands out in her mind as the most off the wall thing I’ve ever done.
One day my husband was in a particularly foul mood. When he gets that way, he tends to complain a lot. Usually I am able to just tune him out and ignore all of his noise. On this day though, I just didn’t want to hear him at all. I was in the kitchen making him an egg salad sandwich and he kep going on; about what, the details have long faded. I wanted him to be quite so badly. Finally when I couldn’t take his obscene mouth any longer, something got a hold of me and I took the hard boiled egg I was peeling and I smashed it in his neatly trimmed beard.
We both looked at each other and we were both equally shocked. The look of bewilderment on his face as he stood there, in our tiny kitchen made me wish I had a camera close by. Well it worked! He didn’t say a word and he went and cleaned up. My house was quiet once again and I could actually hear myself think for a change. Never underestimate the power of a tiny egg 😉
