Well, my son called me at 11:30 last night.
Pinky: Mom, I love You!
Me: I love you too Son
Pinky: Mom I almost died tonight
Me: What happened?
Pinky: We were all floating down the river, I was in my big tube and got sucked under by one of those things?
Me: O My god
Pinky: Mom, I fought for my life, my friends got sucked under also, I rescued them. I was never so scared in my life. There was 6 of us Mom
Me: Is everyone all right?
Pinky: Well, when it was finally over mom, It was like the movie Romancing the stone. Remember when they go over the falls and they end up on opposite sides of the river.
Pinky: It was like that. Everyone was crying and scared to death. I yelled to them all to stay put and I would come get them
Me: Oh my god,,,,
Pinky: Well, they didn't stay put and I had to call 911 and they sent rescue out so we finally all were safe. Oh and by the way the cops just pulled me over for not having mud flaps. I told them what happened and they said they had heard about it on the scanner. So he didn't give me a ticket.
Me: (all the while I have warned this kid about such things for years, during this conversation I kept asking him, did you guys have life Jackets on)... The Rivers are still high and fast and cold in Oregon... I warn this kid and warn this kid... I am glad they are all safe, But then he told me they had a 3 year old with them. The child is safe.. Back to the life Jackets
Pinky: No Mom, quit asking me about life jackets, No we didn't have life Jackets and Boober was drunk.. Oh yeah and the The 3 year old had a life jacket on...
Me: I am glad your are safe and everyone is alright.
******************** Why does it seem our warnings always fall on deaf ears. Do our kids think we are stupid and just make this crap up?... I have seen time after time this happen.. And to have a 3 year old with them. I seriously think they all must have taken a stupid pill. I am glad they are fine and I am so glad they all had the bejesus scared out of them. ***************
What a bunch of Dumb ASSES....
