Can Chapstick Kill you?
Ok so this picture wasn't from today...but every blog needs a picture lol
Usually Wil is pretty quiet in the car. He keeps his thoughts to himself and stays in a twilight of sleepy awakeness that I like to call morning haze. I wonder most times what he's thinking of and sometimes he obliges with a tale or two.
This morning, he had a time waking up. I popped up at 5:29 AM 1 minute before the alarm officially went off and decided what the hay let's get up and shower anyways. Wil was still in bed when I was out and dressed at 6:09. Seeing as we have to leave at 6:30 I woke his little butt up. Opened the door and said....Good Morning Lazy Daisy...time to wake up! With a grunt and a groan he did as was told.
Fast forward to the truck...we get in and as I'm backing out he says "Mom....(yes?) Can Chapstick kill you?" Me taking it quite literal respond...sure it can...anything is possible. Thinking...if a toothbrush in prison can kill you surely a chapstick can, right?
He get's a little flustered and stutters "R.R...R...Really?" Sensing with my special 6th sense that only Mothers have I realized he was serious and that he had probably done something stupid with Chapstick. Seeing as he's an 11 year old boy I was hoping it wasn't anything so disgusting that I would have to return him home and involve his father in it. Because really, what do I know about BOY stuff? Ok I know some....lol
So I gently begin the quesitoning...Why are you asking? "Well because I was reading my chapstick" And..."and I was wondering if it would kill you" Dang this kid and his circle questioning tactics!
What happened to your chapstick? "Well nothing to this one" What happened to the Chapstick in question?..."well..." ...... Well? "Well, it was really good." What do you mean it was really good? Like it tasted good? "Yeah...it was like a Cupcake or Twinkee. And what did you do to it?..."I think I ate it"
You THINK you ate it?! (What the hell!) ..."Yeah it was really good" Why the heck would you eat a Chapstick!? "Cause it was good" (trying to refrain from laughing hysterically by this point..) You just ate it? "No, it was awhile ago.." Like last night? "No I was like 9 or something" Ok..."and well I was reading my chapstick this morning and it says not to eat it...will it kill me?"
Yeah, you have about 30 seconds to live...(yes I'm that mean lol) "What!? You're lying!" Yeah of course I'm lying, if it was going to kill you...you'd already be dead. Don't eat chapstick ya dingleberry. "Even if it's really good?" Even if it tastes like candy...it's not. "Ok"
