Geeky Girl: I need someone to help me.
Mr. Geeky: With what?
GG: Well, there’s something in the hallway. I think it might be throwup.
MG: Well, clean it up.
GG: I can’t.
MG: Yes, you can. Just get a rag or something and scoop it up.
GG: I don’t think I can scoop it up.
MG: What do you mean? Of course you can.
GG: I don’t think it’s scoopable. It’s liquid.
GG: And it’s purple.
At this point, I just doubled over laughing. These are words you do not want to hear just before bedtime.
GG: Mom? Mom? Are you okay?
After I recovered from laughing, I went upstairs to investigate the alien vomit. Turns out, it was a splash of berry yoghurt from smoothies Geeky Boy has been drinking. Yes, I smelled it.
GG: Mom, I have never seen you laugh that hard.
Me: Well, I’ve never been told that I needed to help clean up something liquid and purple before.
Parenting. Always full of new levels of grossness.
