So we are sitting around watching tv last night and some ghost hunter show was on. This is something we've watched before, not a huge deal for an 11 year old, right? She loves the show... she's the one who wanted it on.
So, on the show, there is this plastic red ball. Demon #2 says; "Wouldn't it be freaky if all of a sudden a baseball would fall down the the stairs?".
Being the quick-thinking mom that I am, I say; "You know what would be even more freaky?"
I've got her attention... she looks at me with a big smile waiting for the punchline of the joke.
"If you didn't own a baseball."
It totally freaked her out! LOL She said her stomach twisted and everything. She was afraid to get out of the chair... afraid of the baseball that we DO HAVE.
I know it's mean, but it was funny. I can't believe I scared her like that over something so silly.
