At the Table

My mom made tacos for dinner. Besides the cheese, meat, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, black olives etc. etc. she also prepared both hard shell corn tortilla and soft shell flour tortillas.

Lauren and I used to make tacos all the time but we always use the soft shell flour tortillas. Lauren reached across the table and grabbed one of the hard corn tortilla.

Holding the tortilla up she innocently said, "Man, I haven't had a hard one in such a long time."

I looked up at my father who was stifling a laugh and I started cracking up.

"Lauren, we live with my parents. It is difficult to find the alone time." I said.

My dad, now laughing said to Lauren, "Would you like for your mother-in-law and I to go for a walk."

How AWKWARD! I would have slid under the table if my darling daddy laughed at such a joke. However, I would have LMAO if I was sitting at the table at your house.

Snort!!

I usually go for the soft ones, even though I like the idea of the hard ones. But they hurt my mouth sometimes.

(we're talking tacos, right?)
