“It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won’t drink from my glass.” ~Rodney Dangerfield
A close friend has a ten year-old son who lately has had a problem with chapped lips. She got him a couple of tubes of some medicated lip balm, the kind where you squeeze out a bit of stuff and put it on your lips.
Being a ten year-old kid, he lost them. He told mom this the other night, and she said something to the tune of “Just look around, I am sure they are here somewhere.” Nothing else was said.
Nothing else, until this email from his teacher today …
Staff and myself are growing concerned about Steven’s “lip balm”. I noticed him using it yesterday and other staff noticed it last Friday. We saw it again today. Apparently he is using a brand called Monistat. In fact he has two of them. He has been using them on his lips. I (along with other staff) advised him that it isn’t what it is being used for but he continues to argue with us and claims that you guys gave it to him for his dry lips. If that isn’t the case, please let him know to discontinue with this brand.
Lips are lips, no?
I am sure the Mom is aghast…but I know my own Mom will friggin’ LOVE this story, I gotta send her a link.
Ken is correct, I think this story is hilarious!
Holy shit! My Mom actually showed up! Hi Mommy!
Oh, and send cookies!
That could have been one of my kids.
Gadzooks! I’m surprised the school didn’t notify Child Protective Services.
My friend’s son, who happens to have DS, added a beer to his lunch bag and took it to day camp when he was 6. His counselors knew what a character he was, so they simply took it away and gave it to his dad when he was picked up. We still laugh about it 18 years later!
As an Aussie I did have to google monistat, now it totally makes sense and I nearly wet myself laughing! My autistic do once shaved off his eye brows and kept them hidden under a hat till the school made him remove it lol
Thanks for the early morning laugh, SD and a very Happy Chanukah to you and yours…
