Quick... very quick !



My 8 years old niece was going through her mom's bedside table when she found some , hum, battery operated device ( k'mon, you know which one I'm talking about ) With perfect timing , my sister entered the room and found her daughter standing by the bed, holding the... thing, wondering what to make of it . Without a flinch, my sister grabbed it and said : " Wow ! You've found the flashlight ! I was looking for it . Thanks !! "

Quick... very quick !

But somebody needs a better hideout...

Only problem is... my dd LOVES flashlights and would then be hunting it out any chance she got :) Was definitely quick thinking though :)

Thanks for stopping by Crayons (via Michele!!)

Grins said...

Same thing happened to a friend of mine except this particular device was VERY lifelike. She turns around upon hearing "MOM! Theres a willy in your drawer!!!!". She about died of course. Here via Michele. Going to snoop around a bit.

kenju said...

Yes, I think a better hiding spot is in order; maybe a shoe box in the closet??

Michele sent me.....LOL

Yes, I can just see her hunting for it again when she needs a flashlight.
Michelle sent me.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I was here earlier today and Michele sent me back! Congratulations on being Site Of The Day!
Have fun with it!

Karen said...

OMG! Awkward! She is one quick thinker. Hopefully her daughter will forget this. I know your sister won't!

Congrats on being Michele's site of the day!

Star said...

Michele sent me. I bet your sister is thrilled to have that story up on the day Michele chose you for extra traffic!

Just a trumpet player said...

Yep ! My sister's so proud to be a star now...

Sandy said...

LOL! Ok, but now what about when your neice wants to play with the flashlight?

Michele sent me over to say congrats on being site of the day.

art-sweet said...

Yeah! Another Photo Friday Friend makes site of the day!

Congrats and hello from Michele!

kenju said...

Congrats on being Michele's site of the day! I still think the "battery-operated device" should go in the closet! LOL

Scouser said...

Wonderful little story. Here via Michele's today.

Miss Cow is a Cow said...

Sue said...

Hi, Michele sent me -- good comeback -- now I'll know what to say if it ever happens to me. Congrats!!!

Sparkling Diamond said...

heehee...too cute! Althought now the question is: Will she always have this crazy memory (hence future stories) about the weird flashlight she found once?!?!

Here from Michele's!

Leslie Shelor said...

You sister is a quick thinker!

Here from Michele, hello, and congratulations on site of the day!

used*to*be*me* said...

ROFLMFAO! That is classic. I think once we had kids, every one of us who own a batter operated object had to find a better hiding place. Thankfully, my daughter was only 2 when she found it. Nothing to explain there. Whew!

PS - Michele sends me today.

shpprgrl said...

Too funny! I bet your sister finds a new hiding place doesn't she! lol

Here from Michele's!

Good Company said...

LOL....Just like in the movie Parenthood, but that one happens in front of the whole family. Maybe I should consider a new place for the "flashlight"

PS> Michele sent me!

Wordnerd said...

Probably should put it out of sight...I have visions of an electrician or plumber asking to borrow a flashlight and the child bringing him mom's!

Here from Michele's ... thanks for the laugh!

Claire said...

Oops! One day that girl is going to have the shock of her life!!

Here from Michele's. Congrats on being site of the day!

Anonymous said...

For all of your concerns...The flashlight is well hiden now !!!

Deb R said...

Funny! :-)

Michele sent me.

Cin said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

That'll never happen in my house.

We have cats.

Ahem...

Michele sent me. Thanks for that!

yellojkt said...

Not a very bright kid if she didn't realize there was no bulb. Still pretty embarrassing.

Michele sent me.

Just a trumpet player said...

Yellojkt: she is actually one of the brightest kids you'll ever meet. But since she has a Luminou flashlight, one that has no apparent lightbulb, just a glowing plastic cover, she thought her mom used the same kind of technology... after all, she held that thing for about 5 sec...

KaraMia said...

Oh man, you just gave me some blog material..now only to figure out how to edit for family..hmmmm

Sue said...

Hello again -- here from Michele's today :) -- still think it is hilarious :)

Shane said...

Dak-Ind said...

Carmi said...

Reminds me of my own childhood experiences rummmaging through my parents' room when they were away.

It's a wonder my mind wasn't damaged permanently!

Good times!
