Double Take

I was at the mirror in the bathroom this morning, about to dry my hair. I did not look at my son when he walked into the room. Mentally I was still in my bed fast asleep.

"Mama, I got your balls here," Zane said.

It took a couple of seconds for those words to compute, my face to register "Huh?" then a couple more seconds for me to turn in his direction.

Zane was holding a bag of colorful plastic balls from his toy box. He smiled at me as he held out the bag.

It was at that moment that I decided that I needed a cup of coffee.


  1. absolutely, with kids you have to get your head out of the gutter....or at least snicker your way through it :)

  2. Lol, my girls have had my balls for years!

  3. What's so odd about that? My wife will take my balls out of her bag every now and again and say the same thing.

    I'm a professional table tennis player and need my balls to be well protected.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
