Another Simple Misunderstanding

Rarely do I get to spend time with my oldest daughter who lives 3 hours away from me, so I was happy to be able to spend some time with her and her family, which includes two of her children, Wesley, nearly 14, and Jeremy, 9 and a half.

Jeremy sometimes reminds me of myself. When my childhood home caught fire and my entire classroom jumped up to see all the fire trucks zooming by our classroom window, my teacher commanded all of us to sit down, because none of those trucks were for any of us. I couldn't wait to get back to school to tell the teacher how wrong she was.

Though the fire occurred on a Wednesday, because of the dangerously low temperature, we wouldn't return to school until the following Monday. First thing Monday morning, I ran up to her to tell her she was wrong. The fire trucks WERE going to my house! So there!

On my weekend visit with my daughter and her family, Jeremy couldn't wait to tell me about the mistake his mother had made the time they all went out for dinner. Wesley had made a mental note of the waitress tag that said, "Jackie."

After they all enjoyed a meal together and when it was time to leave, Keeley talked to Mike about the tip. Wesley and Jeremy heard, "Don't forget Tootie."

Wesley had paid attention to Jackie's name tag. "MOM! Her name is Jackie, not Tootie!"

Keeley is still trying to convince Jeremy, who delights in telling this story again and again, that what she said was NOT, "Don't forget Tootie," but, "Don't forget the gratuity."
