What an evening I have had...

I was making dinner (chicken).  I went to the store specifically for the ingredients that I needed.  I reach for the last ingredent, lime juice, and it's gone.  Well... my kids are always interested in lime and lemon juice...I have no idea why.  So I yell...boys...do you have my lime juice!  I think that they were unsure if they should respond. After some hesitation... they yell back...yeah!  I said bring it to me!  They bring it back ...empty!

Let me add here that I am starving and the chicken is just not as good without it. I am on a sugar free diet so it's not really easy to find things to eat. So okay... no big deal...my husband will pick some up on the way home.

A few  minutes later I ask, "What did you do with the lime juice?"  Again, they hesitate,  "Then my younger son says we filled up our "cowboy guns" and were shooting each other.  I walk into there bedroom and there is lime juice everywhere! It is a good thing we have hardwood floors...so they had to wash the floors. You would think that is was the end of the world!  I don't think that they will be doing that again anytime soon. They had three bedrooms and a hallway to wash.

I called my husband and he says, "What would make them do that?"  I said, " I have no idea...maybe they wanted the container?

They are just wild and crazy boys. That is the only explantion. It's genetic cause I often as my husband "Why did you just do that?" LOL They learn it from their daddy's. LOL
