Cheating Death

Little Miss Thing, age 7: “I’m going to scream so loud it will knock your socks off!”
(loud high pitched scream)

Me: “That was a great scream, but my socks are still on.”

LMT: “You cheated death!”

Me: ” Feeling dramatic today, are we?”

LMT: “I’ll be back!” (evil laugh as she runs off)

Me: “What an interesting phase we’ve started.”
