Warning: Beware Of Redhead Mothers

lou_gehrig_shoe_lacesCoach:  “See those long things on your shoes by your ankles?  They’re called laces – tie them.”

12 year old boy:  “Why?  I like them this way.  They’re cool.”

Coach:  “Is ‘cool’ sitting on the bench?”

12 year old boy:  “No.”

Coach:  “Wow, then I guess you will be using those things called laces.  Don’t make me tell you a 2nd time.”

Brian:  “Come on Jess, tie your shoes so we can play!”

12 year old boy:  Sigh.  “Alright, but this sucks.”

Brian:  “No … sucks would be if it was my mom over there telling you.”

12 year old boy:  “Why?”

Brian:  “You don’t know anything do you?  Because she’s a redhead, and you’d be dead at the first “Why?””

12 year old boy:  “Oh, I heard about them…”

Boy hurries and ties shoes.

Brian:  “Come on, let’s play ball.”

Coach to me:  “Wanna be my assistant coach?”

Until next time-

    Having been married to a redhead..(ex #2) I can vouch for the accuracy in Brian’s statement…:):):)

    Too funny! So redheads are deadly, huh? I have dyed my hair red before, but I guess the deadly part doesn’t come in a box.

    I can just hear this conversation unfolding. Kids (and family life) can be hysterical!

    Especially since the word “Why?” sends an electrical shock wave to the base of my spine making me want to propel forward and kill something…
    But maybe that is just a normal reaction for a redhead…?

    Thanks for your comments – you guys are the best.
