O.K., so I know this really has nothing to do with anything that this blog is about…well, except that it happened in real life…but I just had this random memory from my childhood and I’ve been sitting here sewing and giggling to myself for the last 5 minutes and I figured I’d look a little less crazy if I had someone else laughing with me.
It happened like this…
I was probably about, I don’t know, maybe 11, and I was getting ready to head out back to play. I was crouched down beside the sliding door tying my shoes. My mom was at the kitchen sink, just the other side of the breakfast bar, doing dishes, when all of the sudden I’m like, “Oh, shoot!” And Mom’s like, “What happened?” And I’m like, “My tongue fell out!”
I was pulling up the tongue of my sneaker before I tied my shoe, and it pulled right out of it’s stitches and was flopping there in my hand.
Of course, my mom couldn’t see that, I was crouched on the floor on the other side of the bar, remember?
I stood up, showed her the amputated shoe appendage, and we both burst out laughing…
Maybe you had to be there.
It still makes me laugh.
