A Short Story

So there we were after a long day of travel, sitting in our hotel room in Albuquerque, NM.  My ankle was swollen and throbbing, so I asked Simon to run to the ice machine and bring me some ice to put on it.  
He gets a big smile and says, "Oh I have something even better than that!" and ran out the door.

TC and I looked at each other a little perplexed but went back to resting our eyes.  Simon was gone for what seemed like a really long time.

Finally he returned.

He comes to the side of the bed and has me close my eyes and put my hand out.  

I felt him dump something into my hand.

I opened my eyes, he had given me a handful of dirt.

"Rub some dirt on it Mom!"

The boy watches way too much football.


  1. I think I literally just laughed out loud. That's a cowboy response right there!

  2. Now there's a boy after my own heart!
