Laziness on my part...as evidenced by my much later-than-normal shower this morning. And laziness on Maria's as well. John left to go get a repair done on our car as I was starting my shower, so I asked him to tell Maria to keep an eye on Jack until I got out. Afterwards, I popped my head out of the door wearing a towel and a smile-
MARIA- Yeah? (distractedly, tv in background)
ME- Is Dad gone?
MARIA- Yeah (still distractedly)
ME- Where's Jack?
MARIA- Um,,,I don't know...
---Jack rounds the corner from the kitchen with a piece of bread in his hand and a triumphant grin on his face.
ME- Um, how about "he's dumping a brand new loaf of bread all over the kitchen floor"?
MARIA- Um...I don't know...
---I come into the kitchen to find Jack has, indeed, dumped a new loaf of bread all over the kitchen floor. He has, in fact, stepped all over most of it.
JACK- Oh no! Mess!
ME- Uh huh
JACK- Bread! YUM YUM!
So,,,no grilled cheese for lunch today after all....
