Put The Joke To Rest

| OH, USA | Grandchildren, Popular

(Our younger grandson returns from school ill. I am picking up his brother from their house and want to check on the younger boy. He feels too ill to leave the bathroom, so they bring him a pillow and blanket. I called out:)

Me: “He’s sound asleep in here.”

Son: *yells back* “That’s why we now call it the restroom.”

Older Grandson: *whispers to me* “Daddy stole my joke!”

Grandchildren On Red Alert

| NC, USA | Grandchildren, Popular

(This was a story my boss told, about one eventful car ride after picking up her grandson from school.)

Boss: *stops at a red light, and makes a legal right turn*

Grandson: “Grandma! That was a red light! A RED LIGHT! You’re supposed to stop. RED means STOP!”

Boss: “It’s called a ‘right on red’ and there was nobody coming.”

(Her grandson sees a police car parked by the road, and he rolls down the window and tries to hang out of the window waving and screaming.)

Grandson: “GRANDMA RAN A RED LIGHT! HEY! HEY, MISTER OFFICER, GRANDMA RAN A RED LIGHT!”

(Thankfully, there wasn’t anybody around and he didn’t fall out of the window!)

A Cautionary Trip

| Waverly, OH, USA | Grandchildren

(While his little brother was using the restroom, my seven-year-old grandson inspects the huge tent-like “CAUTION” sign a worker had left blocking the path to the stalls.)

Grandson: “Does this sign say ‘caution’ because you might trip over it?”
