Wot So Funee: Tall Tales

Wot So Funee?

I should have known this day would come round eventually given Meg's extreme imagination.  She plays such strange little games at home that it was really only a matter of time before she took them on the road.  I just didn't expect for it to happen at Sunday School.

During snack time in the pre-school group, the children were talking about times that they had been unwell.  Illnesses brought up included the common cold, chickenpox, a poorly chest, poorly ears and then Meg's contribution:

"One time, I needed to go to the hospital when I put my eyeballs in the oven."

Unfortunately I wasn't present at the time otherwise I would have swooped in and pointed out that no, Meg has never put her eyeballs in the oven.  The lady leading the session however passed on this information to me when I came to pick Meg up and actually added onto the end, "she said it with such a straight face but I'm assuming it's not a true story?"

Oh I can well imagine how she said it, the little so and so!!  It was the same way I was tempted to respond with "actually, it's entirely true.  She now has bionic eyes."  

Because really, how the heck could it be anything other than a complete fantasy??

More importantly, why would Meg choose her eyeballs...and why the oven?!? (I just find the whole thing totally gross!)

I'm beginning to worry about Meg and where her imagination might lead us!


  1. Hehe I have to admit that teacher sounds just as funny as Megs story. :) (how cool would bionic eyes be!)

  2. Meg obviously has a vivid imagination. Might be an idea to check all her homework before she hands it in!

  3. Your straight laced tone in this post, makes it all the more funny.
    Yes, so stupid that teacher HOW could she POSSIBLY have put her eyeballs in the oven - silly lady! ;-)
    Now I understand the term "straight man" from comedy as you telling the story this way, really made it wry (if that's the right word) and really made me chuckle.

    I haven't visited your blog in ages. Is this a new header? It is GORGEOUS.

  4. Hahaha!! Brilliant :). I wonder what that says about your cooking though.... ;) x

  5. This is when my sarcastic nature takes over and fighting the temptation not to tell her that yes the story was true would've hurt!! ;)) xx

  6. Brilliant, beats boring old chickenpox any day! I love the way the teacher had to check though - I suppose she must have thought Meg had got an incident a little bit confused :)

  7. Kids are awesome! I can't wait until Scarlett gets to this age. Although she does tell some interesting stories atm, which may get me & Daddy in trouble one day! "Mummy pushed me down the stairs.." Umm.. i was at work LOL.

  8. Hysterical! What an imagination. And seriously, how on earth could they even think for a moment it was true?!

  9. I wonder what she meant by eyeballs? It's astonishing when they come out with things like that so matter of factly and your left with your mouth open wide trying to think up some plausible explanation for them.

  10. Heheh! She is headed for literary or barrister genius. At least she didn't tell them their Mum and Dad go to the gym every night and leave her on her own with her dolly. Much more believable, and very dangerous - it happened to a friend of mine!


I love to hear from people who've taken the time to read - do leave a comment :)
