Because I have no one else to share this with...

Nate's friend Gabe is over today to play. They have spent the last 45 minutes on our front porch, laughing at our neighbor's dog's butt. Did you follow that? It is apparently a really, really funny looking dog butt. I wouldn't know, cause I haven't looked myself.

A few minutes ago, they came in for juice. Then Nate said, "C'mon Gabe! Let's go look at Candy's butt again!" They ran back outside. I can hear them hooting with laughter out there.

They are cheap dates.


  1. I just about fell out of my chair reading this! You really should post a warning when writing about something so hilarious. Something like, "Reader fasten your seat belt..." Truly the cheapest of dates! Love it!

  2. Children entertaining themselves is music to my ears!

    And it must be a really funny dog butt. Why haven't you given us pictures?!?

  3. I'm with Becky. Must be one funny looking butt!

  4. I'm trying to imagine the conversation Gabe and him mom had on the way home:

    Mom: So, did you have fun with Nate?
    Gabe: Yes!
    Mom: What did you guys do?
    Gabe: We looked at Candy's butt, drank juice, and looked at Candy's butt some more!

  5. @Kim--thanks! Jason is out of town and I was like, I have to tell somebody about this!

    @Becky and Gretchen--I suppose it must've been pretty funny! But, alas, no I did not take pictures. I mean, who wants to sneak around taking pictures of the neighbor's dog's butt to put on their blog? How would you explain that if you got caught? In the immortal words of Meatloaf, "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that."

    @Jenni--Exactly! We aim to provide well-rounded, quality entertainment here at our place! :)

  6. I LOVE this story. What exactly, though, constitutes a funny-looking dog butt? I'd love to get some insight from Nate. My 3 year old and my good friend's 5 year old spent an entire car ride laughing over saying "Ewww, somebody tooted!" No one had actually let one fly, mind you, it was just the phrase that cracked them up.
