A Couple of Funny Stories

Chris usually takes Ethan to school in the morning and one morning this week they had quite a rough start to the day. Chris had set the alarm on the house before getting in the shower just as a precautionary just in case Ethan decided to go outside, Chris would hear the alarm and know. Mind you, this has never been the case. But on this particular morning one of the stray cats in the neighborhood decided to visit us and Ethan saw him so wanted to give him some treats. He pushed a chair over to the door, unlocked the chain on the door and then opened it. Eek! The alarm went off and it was LOUD! It startled Ethan and he ran upstairs to Chris who was getting out of the shower to see what was wrong. Ethan was crying, no not crying, screaming. Chris asked him what happened, calmed him down and then got back in the shower. A couple of minutes later the alarm company came over the intercom asking for our password. Chris couldn't hear what they were saying so he asked Ethan to turn off the bathroom fan. Ethan didn't know what Chris was asking so he took off running out of the room. Chris gets out of the shower again, talks to the alarm company and then gets back in the shower to finish his shower. He finishes up and when he gets out he hears someone knocking at the door. He went downstairs, fully anticipating it being Cary police only to find Ethan on the back porch knocking on the door crying. He opened the door and asked him what he was doing and he said he had tried to feed Kenny again and got locked out (he forgot to unlock the door knob). Chris, just shaking his head, said why don't you just sit on the couch and watch cartoons. Whew! What an eventful morning.

And today this conversation took place.

Ethan: Daddy, I took some money to school this morning to give to Katie.

Chris: Katie who?

Ethan: I don't know.

Chris: What for?

Ethan: Because Katie had an earth break.

Chris: What?

Ethan: She doesn't have any food and her house is rumbled.

See if you can figure that one out. I will post again later and interpret it for you.
