I was on the phone with my dad a few moments ago, chatting on speakerphone. This is nothing new, as he has some trouble holding the phone these days. As we were talking he summoned Bubba to come say hello.
Sound of feet running down hardwood hallway.
Bubba: (yelling, as most of us are wont to do when on speakerphone) “Hi Sissy! We weren’t doing anything!”
Me: “What do you mean ‘we weren’t doing anything?’ What did you just do?”
Dad: (in panicked, rushed tone) “NOTHING! Don’t listen to anything he says!”
For those of you unfamiliar with my dad – and most four year-olds – this can’t be good.
