When we were at the State Fair, we had promised our kids that we’d get them a souvenir at the end of the day before we left. As the end of our day neared, we got our two girls Japanese style umbrellas and our younger son a light-up space gun. Our oldest son, at almost fifteen, wasn’t really looking for those kinds of souvenirs, and since we weren’t able to find something to fit his age, we chose to tease him instead. So my husband started off by mentioning to me that our son was incredibly jealous. He said that apparently our son had had his heart set on getting one of those pink Japanese umbrellas as well. When he looked at his dad like he was crazy and started spluttering to me that this was most certainly not the case, my husband then finally started laughing. Then I decided to get in on the act too, so as we were passing a booth, I asked our son if a pink screen printed t-shirt with kissing kittens on it was more his style. At that point, he hadn’t quite figured out that we were only teasing him so he quickly gave me a negative shake of his head and looked at me like I had just spontaneously grown two heads and four arms. I then elbowed him in the arm and told him I was just teasing him again. I told him we tease because we love. It’s what we do. He then told my husband that he’d better make sure to pick up that pair of pink and purple tie-dyed shorts that he saw him eyeing earlier, before we left the Fair. Turnabout’s fair play I suppose, especially if it’s at my husband’s expense and not mine!
