None Of Your Lip! / Callate La Boca!


I spoke with The Kid Brother on FaceTime Monday afternoon. When I told him I slammed the window shut on my finger and I showed him the finger, he said with sincere concern, "Wow! You need to be careful."

When I moved my face close to the camera and told him I trimmed my mustache and snipped a hole in my upper lip with the scissors, he backed away from the screen and said, "You numskull!"


Hablé con El Hermanito en FaceTime el lunes por la tarde. Cuando le dije que cerré la ventana en mi dedo y le mostré el dedo, dijo con sincera preocupación, "¡Wow! ¡Tienes que tener cuidado!

Cuando moví mi rostro cerca de la cámara y le dije que recorté mi bigote y corté un agujero en mi labio superior con las tijeras, él retrocedió lejos de la pantalla y dijo: "¡Tú zoquete!" 




WITH THE KID BROTHER — BEFORE HE THOUGHT I WAS A NUMSKULL.
CON EL HERMANITO — ANTES DE QUE ÉL PENSARA QUE YO ERA UN ZOQUETE.

Otherwise, I feel fine!
De lo contrario, me siento bien!

      Skype and now FaceTime have made things so much better, and a lot more fun.

  3. Be careful! It is a good thing you don't have a chainsaw handy.

      Some years back, I tried for a while to trim big hedges myself with an electric hedge trimmer. One nicked cord and a near miss to my calf cured me of that idea.

  4. Sounds as though Chuck is taking over the 'mother role' maybe?
    Now....BE CAREFUL!

      Not a chance. That's him in the brother role and that's fine with me.

      I'm to my second three. There was the slam to the head with the bathroom door, the nick on the forehead with the kitchen cabinet knob, the sliced finger in the recycling, and the bruised and cut shins on the bed corner.

      He mostly saves "You jerk" for my bad sense of humor.
