We're going to a friend's for dinner this evening, so I made some brownies to take with me. Well, I'll just test one...(I tell the kids this is "testing for poison" and in no way indicates cheating!)
Stiff instructions to the people I live with: DO NOT TOUCH THE BROWNIES!
I went off to fold a load of wash and found this upon my return to the kitchen...
"Hey, who did this?" Silence.
Off to make the beds and saw this upon my return..."I said do not touch the brownies! Do you all hear me?"
"Not me, Mom, not me!"
"Don't know what you are talking about!"
Hmmm...Can't find a guilty soul...
"Now come on! There will be nothing to take to dinner!"
Ah well, like mother like child...
