Brutal Honesty

Mommy:  Does my hair smell?

Me:  No, you’re fine.  [I’ve been married long enough to know the rules.]

Mommy: Are you sure?

Me: Yep.

…[a half an hour later at breakfast]

Cookie: Mommy, did you take a shower last night?

Mommy: No, I was too tired.

Cookie: Your hair stinks.  Go take a shower after breakfast.

Mommy: But you told me…

Me: Making breakfast must have messed up your hair.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
