I Know That Trick

Today is Sunday and this morning while getting ready to go to Mass my 7 year old son had an amazing discovery.  ALL of his shoes, every one of them, were MISSING!  His sandals, his school shoes, his sneakers, every pair disappeared.  "Really?" I said.  So, of course, we looked for them and they were nowhere to be found.  "I can't go to Mass if I can't find my shoes!" he said.  Yeah....right.

Now, I was not born yesterday, maybe the day before, but not yesterday.  I do have experience in these matters, having reared his infinitely more sneaky and Mass avoiding brother.  "Well," I say, "then you are going to have to go barefoot."  I did mean this - he would have gone barefoot.  "WAIT!" he says, "let me check one more place...."

Are you sure you're not my mom? I think I heard JUST THOSE WORDS when I was a kid.
