Ave has pink eye...
He's sporting the 'stache, for two reasons, 1) like his father, he thinks 'staches are cool, and 2) it takes the focus off of his eye of pink!
When we got back home from the doctor, for fun, and to appeal to the "little boy" in my little boys, I said, "Do you know how you get pink eye, Ave?"
"No," said The One Who Knows Everything, much to my surprise!! He will usually just make something up, to give the illusion that he does indeed know everything!
Channelling this hilarious scene...
I said, "You get it when someone farts on your pillow." To my youngest, I said, "Jack, did you fart on Bubba's pillow, and give him the pink eye?"
Immediately, Jack said, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO...I didn't!!!"
Avery didn't believe him, and yelled, "YOU FARTED ON MY PILLOW?!? You little..."
"HEY! Watch it!!" I interrupted.
Avery, obviously mad, yelled some more, "I'm gonna...I'm gonna...I'm gonna fart right in your eye!!"
With that disgusting threat, Jack leapt at his brother, and a playful riot began.
Arms were swinging, legs were flailing, the two boys were a tangled mess, and over it all were their mutterings...
"I didn't fart on your pillow!"
"Yes you did! I know you did...I have pink eye!!"
"Oh yeah? I'm gonna fart in your mouth!"
"Oh yeah? I'm gonna fart in YOUR mouth!"
Lily and I watched for a few minutes (they are entertaining), but, eventually I had to separate them, and explain that I was just kidding, and that farting on someone's pillow will not give you pink eye.
I don't think they believed me, though, and I think I may have planted a seed, and possibly started a war!!
Note to self: Flip your pillowcase over before you lay down, and/or change pillowcases often, on the off chance that the farts of little boys can, indeed, cause pink eye!!
