At Dinner Last Night

This is not a verbatim conversation, just an approximation:

Little Bro: I’ve been thinking about when I was little, and sometimes I got in trouble for outing myself, and I don’t think that’s fair. If somebody confessed, you should have shown mercy.

Big Sister: they did show mercy for confessions. You didn’t confess, though, did you? You just talked too much, like usual, and accidentally gave yourself away and got caught. That’s not confessing. That’s being dumb.

Little Bro: yeah, but it was an accident.

Mama: Exactly. You think you got in trouble for being naughty, but actually, you were suffering the consequences of being both naughty and stupid.

Little Bro: But it was only accidentally stupid.

Papa: Don’t discount the dangers of stupid, son, especially accidentally stupid. There’s a whole lot of stupid around-

Big Sister: Yeah. About 6 foot 3 of it.

Little Bro: 6’4″ I’ve grown.

Family: (collective smirks)

Little Bro: Wait. Arrgh.

    That is PRICELESS.

    Reminds me of a birthday card my high-school best friend got me, “I just want you to know that I love you and have your back. I stick up for you. When I heard people saying, ‘She sure acts stupid,’ I jumped right up and said, ‘HEY!’ (open card)

    ‘THAT’S NO ACT!’ ”

      I agree, PRICELESS. 🙂

      And I’m sorry, but that card is quite funny, too. 🙂
