Definition of Birthday Asphyxia: a condition of severely deficient supply of oxygen to the body that arises from being unable to breathe normally.
Also known as what happened on our way home from dinner tonight. Tonight was one of those perfect nights that come along once in a...well, never. It was the first family night of perfection we may have ever had?! Mamaw joined us for Shane's birthday dinner, the kids ate free, we got a free chocolate mess, the boys behaved really good except for the occasional getting out of the chair's to dance and get a whoo-hoo.
On the car ride home is when things took a turn for the worse. Somebody (who shall remain nameless because I wouldn't want Shane to get embarrassed even though I think it was one of his proudest moments) let a silent big one. Folks, I'm talking I'll be having nightmares tonight. It gets worse though. The frickin' child safety locks were activated on the windows. Yep, you read me right we were on lock-down in a most crucial time.
Then sweet Mamaw, with her prim & proper 83 year old Southern East Texas draw says, "I believe someone let out a Rooty Tooty!!!"
