Reaping What I've Sown

So last night, about ten o'clock, the kid is making herself a PB&J, and doing a fine job, too (eight is a great age, may I say), when I walk through the kitchen and slip on a bit of yogurt she has spilled earlier and not cleaned up.

"Hey!" I point out. "Someone spilled some yogurt here and I almost broke my neck!"

"Oh," she says, with utter sweet sincerity, "wait, just a minute -- let me get out my tiny violin." Then she kicks in the sound effects. "Eee- ee- eee -- EEE!"

Oh the violin player, what a great way to show the love. Not only smart, but a great sense of humor.
