Saturday at the park

Dr. Grumpy: "What's going on? Why are you fighting?"

Craig: "FRANK ATE ALL THE BROWNIES!!!

Marie: "YEAH! I PACKED 3 BROWNIES FOR US TO HAVE AS SNACKS AND HE ATE ALL OF THEM!"

Dr. Grumpy: "Frank, did you eat all the brownies?"

Frank (with chocolate all over his face) "Mmmph. Yeah, but I had to."

Dr. Grumpy: "Why?"

Frank: "Because! Look at this wrapper! They all expired last month, so it wasn't safe for them to eat! I did it to make sure they'd be okay."

And the part about the broken arm?

I love his logic!

was Frank telling the truth? Did you check the wrapper?

Hard to know what I find more amazing about the anecdote, that the kids didn't appreciate the enormous self-sacrifice Frank made, or that baked goods stay around long enough to expire.

Sad thing is, I can see my kids doing the exact same thing. :(

So how's Craig's leg? (I am not asking about his hair, repeat: I am not asking about his hair)

Gracie's Mom said...

It was so very thoughtful of him to take one for the team like that.

Frank needs awareness of YOPIs so he can really start his cariere in foodsafety.

Dr. Courtney said...

LMAO! He is brilliant indeed! I could've never come up with that lol.

Sorry to hear that Craig broke his leg. Best wishes for a quick recovery.

Blessed be Frank. He could have crossed to the other side and bypassed his neighborly duty, instead he held himself to the higher duty, his brotherly duty, and did partake of the expired-brownies alone.

As he himself showed mercy, Craig, go and do likewise- after all what are conniving brothers for.

I remember years ago in high school one of my football teammates NO ONE LIKED was constantly drinking out of other people's water bottles because he was too lazy to bring his own.

I solved the problem. I brought an unmarked bottle full of salt water and let it sit and wait... sure enough, the kid took a huge swig, screamed, threw the bottle, and stammered around yelling like an idiot.

He didn't drink out of anyone's water bottle after that...

Such brotherly love and thoughtfulness! :)

Frank, you'd better watch that you don't come up with that one too often; I did as older sister and chocolate bar fundraiser for the high school band, and football team supporter, and student council supporter, and... look what happened to me. Let this be a lesson to you. You'll have contributor to the public good written all over you. And zits.

A real mom or dad never buys packaged brownies, they bake them at home, so there is never an issue as to having enough brownies, and they are always fresh, moist and delicious....excuse me I am going to bakery.

Moose beat me to it.

Now make him drink the expired milk.

take the other two by for icecream, but make frank sit in the car to avoid "sugar toxic reaction from expired brownies"

He is quick thinking and already a politician, (many of whom seem to be lawyers). My question is this: why did Marie think to pack snacks for everyone and neither of the boys did? Hmmm?? She forgot dear old Dad though, or Frank could have had four brownies and also could have saved his Dad from himself.

Kid is going places. What happened to Craig's leg?
