Who Me?

December 1975. I was 4 1/2 and my brother was 3. Mom had ornament-painting supplies WAY up on a hutch shelf. Lucky for my thirsty brother, I was a great climber. He sucked down that (tiny) cup of yellow lead-based paint like it was Tang. The paint mustache on his upper lip gave me away. BUSTED.

Merry Christmas! Pick your poison.

  1. I’m dying! We had the EXACT SAME ORNAMENTS in our house. My mom painted them & she still hangs them on her tree. Might have to remember to send you a picture this holiday season.

    Also, this line … “He sucked down that (tiny) cup of yellow lead-based paint like it was Tang.” … was hysterical. Did I mention that I also have a younger brother?

    Great stuff, lady. Thanks for linking up!

  2. No children were harmed in the making of this post. Phew! Oh my goodness, this made me laugh. I was never a good climber, so I’m impressed with your agility and swiftness! ;)

    Great story! So glad you linked up again!
