Reading the blog today by the Yarn Harlot, Stephanie Pearl McFee, made me laugh my head off. She blogged about having to make a new hat because the old one made her head look like a penis. What a riot! It made me laugh because I, too, have a penis story …
When my eldest daughter was car-seat age or a little bit older, she was very inquisitive and extraordinarily verbal. On a regular basis, she asked questions repeatedly and made comments from the back of the car that we still tell stories about. (“Where is that darned McDonalds? Oh, dis makes me soooo angry”)
Anyway, on one particular day, she may have been in pre-school or maybe even up to first grade. I may have had a baby boy by then. (Can you tell that my memory for when things happen isn’t so good?) But I had to run into CVS to find something and when she asked what I was looking for I replied, “penis lights. A string of penis lights”. Ha! Go figure … why I came up with that response, other than that I knew she wouldn’t ask about it any further because body parts were simply “gross”, I have no idea. But it still tickles my funny bone.
And, Stephanie, your new hat is lovely!
