This wasn't funny at the time, but it's funny now....
Me and my kids went to the grocery store to pick up just a few things, and that day it happened to be PACKED! Elbow to elbow people... So I'm trying to get through the crowd with my cart, and I see a lady with an eye patch on walking towards us. I'm thinking, "Dear God, please don't let my kids see her..." But sure enough, my 4 yr old son sees her walking by, and in front of about 100 people, he says at the top of his lungs, "LOOK MOMMY!! A PIRATE!! SHE'S A PIRATE, MOM... LOOK!!!!" The woman glared at me, and I said "I'm so sorry!" and as I was trying to get away from all the snickers, I explained to my son that an eye patch does not make someone a pirate, and that she probably hurt her eye.
