The other night I came out of my bedroom and into the kitchen and found Aaron sitting in front of the stove in a chair, facing the door to the living room. Not a typical place to be sitting.
"What are you doing?" I asked him.
"Oh, I'm just sitting here, getting ready to protect myself, in case Daniel tries to kill me."
He had my attention.
"Why would he kill you?" At this moment I noticed my small bottle of Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea spray cologne sitting next to him on the stove. Almost completely empty. "What is this?" I yelled. "This was almost full this morning! What did you do?!"
He looked up at me with an innocent look. "He said I was stupid. So I sprayed the bathroom while he's in the shower. He's gonna smell reallllllly good when he gets out." Pleased with himself, he smiled, as if to say "who's stupid now?"
I ran to the bathroom. Sure enough, Daniel was finishing his shower, mad as a wet teenager, and choking and gagging on sickeningly sweet humid air.
Yes, Daniel and the bathroom smelled quite sweet for the rest of the evening.
No, I didn't let Daniel kill Aaron.(although he wanted to)
And yes, Aaron had to give me some of his birthday money to replace my cologne.
I think Daniel is going to be a little more careful in the future about getting Aaron mad. Aaron has proven he can give as good as he gets.
Life with boys is never dull.
