This story I'm going to tell didn't happen today, but it seemed appropriate--given the date and all.
A few weeks ago while in Mansa I was packing up our hotel room after the overnight stay. They had given us a full bar of soap and it just seemed wasteful to have it thrown out after only a couple uses.. It was wet and a bit sticky so I tossed it into an empty potato chip bag and packed it in my suitcase.
I didn't give it another thought until the next day when Peter wandered into our office and began going through my things. It wasn't long until he discovered the bag of 'chips'.
I heard him chattering about it and knew it wouldn't be long until he asked if he could have some.
"Mommy, can I have some food?"
"Why don't you look inside first?"
"Take a smell first before you take a bite."
His look says it all.
How could something so pretty, smell not so good to eat.
It was the perfect April Fools' Day joke--even if it did take place in February.
These photos were recreations of the event. I think Peter has a future in acting. What do you think?
