A Disappointment

Little Brother just came sleepily down the stairs and got in my lap.

"Did you hear a funny noise just before, Mom?"

"What kind of noise?"

"A weird kind of noise."

"You mean when Daddy dropped a bunch of stuff in the bathroom?"

"No, not THAT noise. A noise that sounded like this: ssshhhhhhhh."

I thought about it for a minute, then remembered:

"OH! That was the street-sweeper machine going by! That must have been what you heard!"

I thought he'd be happy to know I figured it out. But he just looked at me seriously and said, "I thought it was an alien ship."

Oh well. Maybe next time!
