Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

TAT: The Sniffer

Tova Darling's Totally Awkward Tuesday is here again, which means you all can laugh at my ever-expanding moments of awkwardness. Yeah, I know - every day around here is Tuesday. Be sure to look up some of the other awkwardness on the blogosphere, linked up to TOVA.
***
My dear husband had some books to return to his college bookstore last week, and so decided to take Monsoon along for some boys only QT (quality time). As they were standing in line, Hubby was zoning out a bit, as he tends to do in boring long lines, but he knew our boy was right there within arms length and not making a huge racket, so all was well.
Then the line moved forward a step and he happened to look down just as Monsoon approached the lady in front of them. She was "large. Very large. With a large, large behind," according to my husband. Monsoon stuck his head forward, creeped up to her very large behind... and proceeded to sniff.
I don't know if anyone else noticed (although I would think someone would had to have gotten quite a kick out of it), but Hubby snatched him up before he could do anything else to the woman (like what? I don't know - tell her how she smells, maybe) and did the ole ground-stare thing until his turn at the counter came around.
*Keep in mind that 1. sniffing runs in his blood - a childhood story for another post; and 2. we recently added a puppy to our family. *

Oh, no! The power of puppy persuasion! Can't wait for the "sniffing runs in his blood" explanation!

I'm with Sassy Britches. I think I follow-up sniffing story is in order.

Kids do the funniest stuff. It is a good thing we have blogs with which to share these tidbits.

Is it weird that I do that?

Call Me Cate said...

Awkward, yes. But funny as hell. :)

I don't know that I would have been able to keep it all together the way your husband did; if the sniffing didn't get her attention, my laughter surely would have.
Too funny.

LegalMist said...

And, just curious, did you guys ask him "why?" Inquiring minds want to know....

Ribbon said...

Yep, that certainly would have been awkward!
One time when I was in a bookstore my little bloke ran behind the counter and lifted the woman's skirt and stood under it!

Best wishes Ribbon

Valerie said...

That was too funny. I thought I had already became a follower, I guess with my daze the last couple of weeks of being sick I imagined it. lol

I visited 'I Need A Kidney Now' last night when I seen it here. I can't donate one as I got my transplant in 2001. Luckily one of my 4 siblings was a match. I will definately post about it though.

Julia said...

OMG That is so funny. I could see my son doing that too but I'd be the parent who did not catch him in time and the large personage would be like WTF is this kid doing...

I am posting your photo and write up tomorrow so be on the look out at TAG! :O

Jen said...

Hilarious...I have this need to smell things as well...but one day I was sitting behind this lady that I know doesn't bath and groom as much as she should. My baby started to cry in his carseat and I totally forgot to hold my breath and ended up inhaling this womans butt. It smelled like a butt...it grosses me out everytime I think about it.

totally sounds like something G would do. We are all about scents around here!
