We were watching TV last night when an ad came on. A chemist chain is giving away DVDs on make up. The DVD is called "Get Gorgeous".
As the ad finished, my daughter looked up and said "Please, daddy, can you get me that tomorrow?"
Then my wife looked over and said "You're not worried that they will think it is for you, then?"
Now I could have responded in a number of ways. I buy anything and everything for my wife and kids, so any thoughts of "ooh, that's a girly thing" went away long ago! A simple "no" would have done the trick. However, I could not prevent the reply that DID come out.
"Of course they will know it's not for me. I'm totally gorgeous already!"
At this point, my older son exploded into a fit of uncontrollable laughter, falling off the sofa onto the floor. Even after he had calmed down, he still kept snickering to himself for the rest of the evening.
I am sure it was not really that funny. If it was, maybe I should consider a career change!
I can always trust my kids for a reality check!
