Did I Just Say What I Thought I Said? XII

It’s the twelfth edition of “Did I Just Say What I Thought I Said?” in which I share phrases that I never thought:
A) Would ever need to be said in the first place,
B) that I would need to be the one to say them and
C) that I wouldn’t just be saying them, I’d be yelling them.

“Stop putting grapes in the flowers!”daffodils with grape

And, as if that wasn’t enough:

“No! No goldfish either!”

Thankfully, I was talking crackers.

Apparently daffodils make irresistible cups for small bits of lunch that you are no longer interested in eating.grape in a daffodil And, to be clear, it wasn’t the daffodils I was worried about so much as the vase, an as of yet unbroken wedding gift.   I refer you to The Anarchist 2.0 and the Goldfish to refresh your memory as to the nature of my concern. But I’ll give you a hint.

Kids are masters at wreckin’ it.

Fortunately, due to my new “No grapes in flowers rule,” the vase is safe… for now.

      Supposed to being the imperative word there! Although to be technical they are supposed to go to the chickens- but sometimes the dogs get there first too.

    Only a mother of small children can say such things and not be considered a loony. 🙂 By the way, your flowers are gorgeous.
