Busted

I am often jerked from some present thing I am doing because the sound of Eraser Eater whining and crying is such an irritation that I tend to go a bit ballistic. This thing happened this morning. The boys were sitting at the table antagonizing each other; the Oldest jabbed Eraser Eater with his green pencil in the groin and then in the arm somewhere. When asked why he did this thing he said,

"He kept calling me 'beaver breath'!"

The straight face I was trying to keep was slowly but swiftly turning into bubbling laughter, so I took Eraser Eater's book (the closest thing to me), opened it up, and gently placed my face in it. I turned around as well. This is how literal my Oldest son is:

"What's so funny? {Eraser Eater's} book?"

I quickly pulled the book down, tore out a page, and placed it in front of Eraser Eater. "Looks pretty funny," I said stupidly. I wondered how the heck he buys whatever I say.

"That must be some book!" he said.

I then went to the bathroom, walked out, went to the sink to get a glass of water and beaver breath echoed in my head, making its reappearance. The visage of the Narnian beaver floated before my eyes. I imagined him exhaling out rank air from eating whatever it is beavers eat. Bark, maybe.

I busted out laughing.

"You seem to be laughy lady today, Mom." Was all he said.

Oh, that's funny! When you said how hard you had to try to not laugh, I thought you were thinking what I was thinking, but then you mentioned Narnia, and now I see what a contaminated mind I have. Eek!

It makes me think of the scene from Epic movie (which I saw on a preview; haven't seen the real thing) where Lucy screams, "A talking beaver!" and kicks poor Mr. Beaver against a tree. Makes me laugh, too. Beaver breath. Heheheh.

I wouldn't mind if you put my blog on your site. I'm glad to be in touch!

To show my classical side, the first thing I thought of was the Two Angry Beavers cartoon. *LOL*
