Funny Story Monday: Misunderstandings

Here's a quick but funny story.  My sister is 3 1/2 years younger than I am.  One time, when she was about 8 years old, we were at the beach with the entire family.  She was getting sunburned so my mom made her put on one of my grandpa's t-shirts. 

Once she pulled the t-shirt over her head and read the wording on the front of it, she started crying.  When asked why she was crying she responded, "I don't want people to think I'm retarded".

The shirt read "Kiss me.  I'm retired."

  4. Jaime, I laughed out loud and big times. Kids are so funny because most of the time they don't know what they're talking about.
