"This walk is tiresome"
"Yes Johnny but years from now we can tell our children we walked miles in the snow. The guilt will be delicious"

I dunno... I was thinking they were ghosts as they left NO FOOTPRINTS. Do they have a reflection when they look in the mirror?

Ashling said...

Good one! My husband is starting to tell our children tails like this too-LOL!

Arkansas Patti said...

Perfect since I am guilty of that very tale. Mine is more on the "having to walk across a frozen lake".

applause...applause...applause!

FABU Micro, dear lady!

My mother use to use this one on me when I was a kid. Except, she always added that she walked in the snow with HOLES in her shoes.

Boy, did I feel guilty after that!

*hangs head in shame*

X to you and the gang!

Guilt used to shame - there is the power (sad but true)

Having successfully traveled back in time, Bizgrenn and Angloz watched their past selves from a safe distance, careful not to disrupt the time/space continuum.

Au and Target said...

Ah, that Catholic upbringing :-)

Scott Oglesby said...

So so true, great one!

If I don’t talk to you again before then I hope you enjoy the holidays and try to stay out of jail on New Year’s Eve, yea?

Love ya babes!!

Parents love to use 'guilt' stories, don't they! Wonderful MM this week.

Linda said...

Don't forget to add "Uphill both ways" for a truly guilt-laden experience!
