You Could Say Mom Is Shell Shocked

| Related | October 23, 2013

(My five-year-old sister is given a turtle for her birthday. About six months later, my sister and her friend are playing with the turtle in the bathroom. My mom comes in.)

Mom: “What are you doing?!”

Sister: *spins around, holding her turtle in one hand and my mom’s toothbrush in the other* “Giving the turtle a bath!”

Mom: “STOP THAT! THAT’S MY TOOTHBRUSH! GIVE ME THAT! YOU BOTH ARE IN TROUBLE! OUT OF HERE! NOW! NOW!”

Sister’s Friend: *muttering to my sister as they’re leaving the bathroom* “I don’t know what she’s so upset about. We do it every day.”
