As Clean as Cold Water Can Get Them

As Clean as Cold Water Can Get Them

coldwaterHahaha. Got this in my email. Too funny not to pass on…

Larry went to visit his 86 year old grandfather in a very rural area. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, Larry’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon and eggs. Larry noticed a film like substance on his place, and questioned his grandfather asking, “Are these plates clean?”

His grandfather replied, “They’re as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal”.

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, Larry was concerned about the plates as it appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”

Without looking up the old man said, “I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don’t you worry, I don’t want to hear another word about it”.

Later that afternoon, as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass. Larry yelled and said, “Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get to my car”.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, ‘COLDWATER, GO LAY DOWN NOW, YEH HERE ME!!!”

Since Noah and I are away on vacation, thought I'd post another edition of You said WHAT to your kid? On SDL's Facebook page awhile...

After asking a friend to leave my house for being rude and over-obsessed with the going-ons in other people's lives, I sat down and wrote this list.

I'm a bad dad sometimes. Like a really bad dad. And this is proof.

Josh (a gay man) rocked the boat when he shared about his marriage to a straight woman. But as challenging a post as it was, something just didn't sit right with me.
