OOPs, I guess you're not the one skipping a Fourth of July Picnic and who's brother is coming home from the service? sorry!
When you're at the checkout line at the grocery and your 7 year old points out loudly that Casey Anthony is on the cover of a magazine. The lady behind us says, "Wow she knows a lot for such a little thing." <with a not too pleased look on her face> I am mortified and before I have a chance to say anything, my 8 year old son, who couldn't stand by and let lil sis get all the attention of "knowing a lot" goes on to tell the lady that Casey murdered her baby and even though she might look pretty in the pictures, her heart must be very small like a dirty raisin. (yes a dirty raisin). The lady was aghast, and I was blushing and trying to pay and get out as fast as possible, while my children gave this older lady a complete run down on how a jury (made up of nice people like you) would find her guilty next week and then they might send her to Jesus so she could explain what would make her do a terrible thing like kill or she might have to spend the rest of her life in jail where bank robbers live. This finally made the lady give in and have a chuckle. She patted them on the head and smiled at me. I smiled back and ran as quick as I could.
