A true, funny story

I am sharing a story with you that happened a couple of years ago…just because I need a laugh today! It is an infamous, much retold Townsend family story that still keeps us in stitches.

Last night we took the kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel. All is well during the movie. We were like a normal family.

Then we tried to go to dinner.

At the first place, the wait was too long so we left. As we’re leaving, Gabe grabs 5 mints even though we didn’t eat there. And…

While Olivia is walking slowly behind us, holding my hand, Olivia’s pants fall down around her ankles and she just keeps shuffling along. In front of everyone that’s waiting for their table. Through the restaurant.

When we finally notice, we are laughing so hard we almost can’t walk.

We need to get out more.

Then we head over to another restaurant with no wait. As we’re walking back to our table, Matthew sees a woman sitting cross-legged in a booth and her foot is hanging out into the aisle.

So he grabs her foot and shakes it.

I just hurry him along and hope she didn’t notice.

We need to get out more.

While we’re eating dinner, a waiter passes by our table and Gabe shouts out “AAAHHH!!” as loud as he can to scare the waiter.You know, just to be funny. In 7-year-old land.

The waiter jumped and almost dropped his tray.

We need to get out more.

Then as we’re leaving, we’re chatting with the family sitting right next to us. They have 2 cute little kids and so we’re just lamenting being out to dinner with kids. Matthew walks over to their table and his 4-year-old chubby chin is perfectly level with their table. The Mom says “Oh, hello there!” and Matthew….wait for it…

lets out a gigantic and extremely loud burp. Then laughs. We get out of there as fast as we can.

See what I mean? We need to get out more.

  1. I feel like I have lived that before. Maybe not quite as funny, but similar. My husband always ends up saying “we are never taking them out to eat again?” I like your response better. Gives us hope that they will get better with practice ;o)

  2. Ah, but that’s the good stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚
