explaining things

there are a few things i can explain to keaton correctly, like how to get to the post office.
there are a few other things i don't explain to her ever, like why i'm in the bathroom so long.
but there are way too many things i can’t explain to her and shouldn't try, but explain them anyway, like how i set her prized tomato plants ablaze with just a jammed stapler.

I don't have any kids, but I'm an aunt who has made some silly babysitting mistakes and one of them was explaining sex to an inquisitive nine year old ...

Iafemmeroar - thanks for stopping by and commenting. it is appreciated. now, about the explaining sex to a nine year old, i havenithing to say, you're on your own. i have enough problems.

itsme - it's a long story, one that i'm sure, given enough time to create, won't be nearly as funny as anything randy will dream up.

ok bob cut out the BS, we all want to know how you fried tomatoes with a stapler.

So, Bobby, did you bang the stapler against the grill to loosen it up, then set off sparks, which, in turn, sparked their way on over to the tomato plants?

As far as the nine year old...in today's culture, they can probably show you a few tricks.

Well for Pete’s sake! …there ya go again with the jammed stapler catching the tomatoes on fire. Bobby, that’s exactly why you’re not allowed inside the Office Supply store over by the burnt down Nursery no more! Jeeze, when are you gonna learn?

bob,
Have you ever wondered what Annabelle is thinking? Read this book "The Art of Racing in the Rain." Wow!
