Now THAT'S lucky

You know that saying about how if a bird poops on you, you'll have good luck?

Well, Mister (Oblivious) came in from doing some yard work and sat down at the table for dinner. He promptly heard a chorus of six voices yelling, "Ewwwwwww!!!!!!!"

"What?" he asked. "Do I have spinach in my teeth?"

"No Dad! A bird pooped on you!!!" was the prompt reply.

"Where?!?" asked the Mister.

"I'm gonna get my camera!" Hatfield announced to the enthusiastic approval of her siblings.

While photographing the bird poop, Hatfield then stated, "Ewwwwwwwwww!!!!" for a second time.

"What???" asked the Mister.

"Dad, you have more bird poop on you!"

"Where?!?!?" he asked.

By this time, the children were rolling on the floor laughing.

After photographing the second glob of bird poop, Hatfield noted that upon closer examination, the second batch was much drier than the first batch. Which she deduced to mean that the Mister was pooped on by two different birds in a 2 hour period.

"Funny, I don't feel all that lucky," the Mister lamented while the kids picked themselves up off the floor and all shoved themselves onto one table bench. Because no one wanted to be by Bird Poop Man.

And I guess he's not. Because he's going to be doing that load of laundry all by himself.

Ah, the beauty of homeschooling. The fact that the kids were noting the difference in the poops is evidence enough of how homeschoolers can use any incident for a teaching moment. HAHAHA
