Squirrel came running down the stairs this afternoon [while preparing for her Senior prom] and was beside herself.
"Mom, Mom...." she exclaimed, "you are never gonna believe what Wallene just said to me!!!"
Thinking Wallene was goading her and said something goofy like "Your dress sucks" or "You picked THAT jewelry?" I was all ready to step in and intervene.
S0 I said:
"What exactly did your twelve year old sister say that has you in such a tizzy?"
I know, nice, eh? I am nothing if not caring in a crisis. :)
Squirrel looked at me and sighed before saying:
"Wallene told me that for Prom 'Abstinence is the key.' "
[Holy crap, really? Wallene said THAT?]
After I wiped my mouth off I simply coughed out "Well I guess that 'Health and Welfare' class has worked out well for Wallene, hasn't it?"
Many stompings of feets by Squirrel and a few fist bumps with Wallene later and tadpoles?
I am still laughing.
