Brief Interlude


I interrupt this recap of our trip to share something funny that recently happened to my dear husband and Anjolie. After church some dear friends of ours, that we have known since 29 Palms days, invited us to go to eat with them at the Officers Club. It is really a nice place, and we are all in our Sunday best having a wonderful time catching up and all. Well, Anjolie, who has been doing a great job finishing her potty training, told us she needed to go. Brian graciously offered to take her. About 10 minutes later a very red-eyed Anjolie and a VERY red, sweaty faced Brian arrived back at the table. We all noticed that SOMETHING had gone terribly wrong. I pulled Anjolie who was still choking back sobs onto my lap and quietly tried to ask what happened. Of course EVERYONE wants to know, so it is silent while she bursts out in the most pitiful cry that I have ever heard, "DADDY..choke choke... FLUSHED MY PACI!!" with that she broke down and sobbed as if her best friend had been flushed (pretty close to the truth). I looked over at Brian wide-eyed, and everyone else is smothering full out laughter. Brian did not find it so funny and proceeded to irritably explain the bathroom drama that had taken place. He had taken her in to the bathroom, but apparently, Anjolie did not make it all the way. Already flustered, he plops her on the potty to finish up. As she is looking to check her progress (sorry) her paci (as we call it) fell into the potty. A VERY angry, at this point, Brian who hates any type of "messy" situation gets Anjolie cleaned up and feeling he had no other choice, flushes the beloved paci. He said they both stood and watched as paci swirled away to the next chapter in its existence...the ocean...at least that is what I told Anjolie. I assured her that her dear paci was with Nemo. Ok, now TEARS are not only rolling down Anjolie's pathetic little red face, but they were rolling down ours as well as we are ALL almost suffocating with laughter. The big question from Brian's buddy was, "Why didn't you just get it man?" HA HA HA...he must not know Brian very well.

Hee hee, yes it was, but we got her 2 new ones. You won't believe this...the very next day she did it again...at home though. Brian got that one and boiled it. I am going to get a big ladle and label it "Emergency Paci Retrieval System"
