Kids Say the Darndest Things
Saturday I went to the post office. The line was long, there were a number of noisy kids in there. Everybody seemed pretty orderly in line. Working their way through the line were two kids; one was about 4. He was piloting his very small sister through the crowd, she had to be just over a year old. She was walking, barely. More of a semi-balanced stomp, but she managed to stay vertical and was having quite a time with it. She babbled, mostly incoherently, it appeared that she could barely talk. Until...out of nowhere, rather loudly and clear as a bell, she blurted out "WHAT THE FUCK!" Everybody heard it, most gasped, I shook my head and said "wow, nice." A couple minutes later, the parents came along, and then it made more sense. They were aruging as they were walking out the door.
