Saturday Centus: A Family Story

"Once upon a time there three bears who had been eating beans. They..."

"You stop that," Mom said sternly.

"Wait! There's more!" said Dad as he began laughing loudly.

"Oh Dad.  There won't be any more. And you know it, this is silly. That is all of the story," said Mom as she watched him and us very closely.

My sister and I joined Dad in his laughter. Mom had endured this many times, how many we wouldn't dare to guess.

One thing we didn't guess about though, is that we knew we would never hear the rest of the story from Dad.

Reminds me of how my hubby used to tell our kids frightening bedtime stories about Pirate Pete and I would have to cut him off before they had nightmares.

OH! I can hear my husband starting one of those stories...chagrin and pleasure all rolled into "appropriate" comes to the mother's guiding mind... but I wonder why he never finished the story? sinister? or just cut off. nicely done!

This was cute. Dads are great for doing the fun stuff in a family. I can totally see this scene played out in so many families.
