Well, we are back. Man, vacations are nice, but sometimes there really is no place like home. Cause we are tired of being in a car. And ready to eat something resembling a vegetable. Seriously, it is incredibly difficult to eat healthy when you are on the road. I know it is technically possible, but it seems like a lot of work and vacations are supposed to be relaxing sooo…unhealthy eating it is.
You know what happens when you eat unhealthy foods for 4 days straight? Your pants get horribly tight. But since you only packed one pair, they are nice and loose by the 4th day. So, you know what else happens when you eat badly for 4 days straight? Gas…bad gas. Not me of course, but the hubby. And we are trapped in the car with him…for 3 hours.
So Lily begins giggling (cause toots are funny when your 4…or 34) and calling her daddy a “stink machine.” While this is going on the hubby pulls into a Dunkin Donuts to grab a coffee (cause according to the hubby they have the best). Lily sees the Dunkin Donuts logo and immediately starts asking for donuts.
The hubby says, “I don’t think I can get a donut for somebody who says my toots are stinky.”
Lily promptly says, “Daddy, I was just kidding, your toots aren’t stinky at all.”
Then the hubby says, “Tell me they smell like roses”
Lily says, “Daddy, they smell just like roses.”
And with what was this little fabrication rewarded? A donut of course. Well, half a donut, cause we had to teach her lying was wrong.
In the interest of fairness I should note the following:
- As soon as the donut was eaten, Lily went back to calling her father a “stink bug.”
- It is possible that the effects of bad food may have affected other members of the family once they arrived home, but that family member shall remain nameless. Although she is pretty sure her gas does in fact smell like roses.
