Euphemisms

My 13 year old was making a sandwich.  She took out all the ingredients and turned to ask me to cut a piece of cheese for it.  I told her I would then forgot when I went to my bedroom to change my clothes.  A few minutes later she found me in my closet and her dad on the bed.

"Mom, will you please cut my cheese?"  Scott and I looked at each other and shared a grin.

"Usually other people can't do that for you, honey."

"Whenever I try to cut the cheese, it just goes all 'phtthppbbb.'"

That pretty much did it.  Scott and I were doubled over laughing and the poor daughter rolled her eyes and left us.

Now if you could come up with a lame joke everytime she needs assistance, she'll give up asking and become totally independent!

I called a house with small children and a child answered. "She's in the shower," she said when I asked for her mom. "How about your dad?" "Ummmm, he's in the shower too." Snort.
