Why do the voices of my children get amplified when we are at the Post Office?
Two years ago we walk in and my son yells, "LOOK MOM, STAR HORES!!! (Wars, and yes we are in speech therapy). Thank you and yes, we are the family on staff at the church down the road.
Last week we walk in and get to the counter. I'm taking care of my postal business and the two big boys are standing to my left. One of them tells the other in the most loud, crystal clear voice you've ever heard, "Ow, that's my weiners don't hit me there!" I gave them 'the look'. You know, the "we don't talk about weiners, or any body parts at the Post Office unless we want to die look." I did not want to turn around to walk out. I contimplated insurance on my package as long as possible and then turned to do the walk of shame to the door.
Thankfully the line was all the way out the door so I had an extra long walk of shame.
