Lost Marbles, Found Marbles
Today for some reason is just a frustrating day and I think I will tell a little story to lighten things around here. This story is based on actual events, however no finger pointing will be done and the identity of the main kid will remain secret. It will not be revealed because I am afraid of retaliation and great bodily harm lol.
Once upon a time there lived a brother and sister. They were close in age and loved each other dearly even though the mother could not tell by all the fighting done during the day. At the end of the day brother and sister were put into the bathtub together (they were still young enough to do this) to peal off several layers of dirt, grim and who knows what else. There was extra scrubbing involved this night because of a muddy project in the backyard and the mother wanted to make sure she had brought the right kids into the house.
Brother and sister had heard the term digging to China and wanted to test the theory. They found the perfect spot in the middle of the yard, in the garden and with the help of the neighbor kids started digging. Since it was fall and most of the garden was picked the mother watched this going on thinking,
“Oh God please let them dig till they are exhausted and go to bed early tonight!”
Well after a couple hours and a few feet later they found out that the further down they went the more mud they found. The mother sprang off of the porch to start pulling kids out of the hole that was several feet down before they got stuck for good. See she did not think they would get as far as they did, but she was sadly mistaken. The kids had dug far enough down that they were getting into a water table that part of the town sits on. After some crying and fussing all the dirt was returned to the hole, China would have to wait for another day I guess. Neighbor kids were sent home to their parents, brother and sister were sent to the tub.
Now this is where everything got interesting and I know the mother could feel the hairs on her head going not gray but white. The little bit of sanity that she was holding onto for the night disappeared. What happened was not bad but it was another one of those funny kid moments that you do not dare laugh in front of them, but you just cannot help yourself. So here we go.
Once it was revealed that the proper kids were in fact in the bathtub the mother rinsed them off and decided to get sister out first. Out came the little girl and the mother set about getting her dried off and started combing out the ten feet of rats nests sitting on top of her head. The whole time the little boy is still playing with his toys in the tub. Just when the mother was almost done there was a blood curdling scream coming from the bathroom. The fear was evident in the mother’s face and you could see the thoughts in her head racing through. The little girl was quickly moved aside and the mother went from the hallway outside the bathroom to standing next to the tub in a fraction of a second.
Now with all the squealing coming from the little boy you would have thought there was blood everywhere or there were missing limbs. Instantly the little boy realized mother was standing there and he looked up with all the alligator tears on his cheeks and started freaking out. He kept repeating over and over again,
“I swear mommy I didn’t do it! I swear I did not put anything in my mouth I don’t know how they got into my body! I promise I did not do it! WWAAAAHHHH!!!”
The mother for the life of her could not figure out what was going on and finally got the boy to calm down enough he could tell her what was going on. Now when I tell you what he said just close your eyes and try to image all of this in your head. Are you ready? OK here it is straight out of the boy’s mouth while he is looking straight down the whole time.
“Mommy I swear I do not know how the marbles got in my body. I am a big boy, I don’t put things in my mouth anymore and I don’t remember swallowing my marbles. So I don’t know how they got there!”
The mother perched on her knees next to the tub staring at the little boy still not quite comprehending what he was telling her asked him if he can feel the marbles and can he point to where they are at.
The little boy took a deep breath, calmly looked at his mother and point to his……… “area”. Instantly it dawned on the mother he found his “beans” and being a toddler thought that he swallowed some marbles and they got stuck there.
Without a word she calmly stood up walked out of the bathroom, yelled for the boy’s father and told him he was needed in the bathroom right away. Honestly I don’t know what happened to the mother the rest of the night she simply walked away shaking her head, giggling, and saying,
So that is my story for the day, I will leave the speculation of the boy’s identity to you. Those of you that read my story that knows who I am in the real world and you do not quite know who it is just think really hard and you will figure it out. As for the little boy, I am soooooo sorry and please don’t hurt me lol.
Have a great day everyone!!!!!!!!!
