Neither short nor stout

April 25, 2010

Worst day ever

On our ride to Lincoln this afternoon, I was driving and Lloyd was reading one of his giant books. Suddenly, he looked out the windshield with a distant, serene and zen-like look on his face.

Lauren: “You o.k.?”

Lloyd (quietly): “I…… am no longer a little teapot.”

Lauren: “*gasp!*”

It’s been such a part of his identity for so long. What now? What now?

  2. Kristi Said on:

    And we’ve managed to hide it from him for so long. How did he ever figure it out??


  3. Peggy Said on:

    How long has Lloyd believed he was a teapot?


  4. Kristi Said on:

    Do we dare tell him the other things?


  5. Mark Said on:

    While no longer a little teapot, may he never forget that he is and will always be Jesus’ little lamb.


  6. Christina Said on:

    Yes, well, I am STILL not necessarily a dianasour! If that is any consolation to you Lloyd.
