    Food To Swear By

    | Erie, PA, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Siblings, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

    (My sister, age two and a half, is sitting at the table in her booster chair looking at her baked potato. Suddenly, she begins to scream.)

    Sister: “F***!”

    (We all turn to look at her, aghast.)

    Sister: “F***! F***!”

    Mother: “Sweetie, what…why are you shouting?”

    Sister: *shouting* “I want f***!”

    (She points angrily at her potato.)

    Mother: *to my father* “She heard that from you, you realize!”

    Father: *to my mother* “As if you never swear!”

    (My parents proceed to fight. My sister is still screaming and pointing at her food. I slowly walk over to the silverware drawer, remove one item, and hold it up where my sister can see it. She squeals in delight and bounces in her chair.)

    Sister: “Yay!”

    Me: “Yes, sweetheart. Here comes your fork.”

    Our parents: *in unison* “Oh!”
