Surely, he would stop

There was the post about Tornado E becoming a budding Casanova.  It was pushed aside for . . .

There was the post of Tornado E shaving his head.  It was pushed aside for . . .

There was the post where I nearly preformed an exorcism on Tornado E this morning.  It was pushed aside for . . .

I was outside holding Tornado A, talking with my 80 year-old, retired airforce officer neighbor, when Tornado S came prancing out of the house, down the drive-way in socks and his Ghostbuster t-shirt that he had pulled his arms inside the shirt.

Me: Tornado S.  Go inside and put on your pants.

Tornado S: I don’t know where they are!  They’re lost!  Forever!


The neighbor (chuckling): You must have to do a million things a minute, Fae.

Me: Yes.  Well, I’ve got to get Him inside.  Have a good afternoon.

The neighbor: You too, dear.

I walked down the driveway to where Tornado S was dancing.  I took his hand and led him up the drive way.

Me: Rules are rules, dude.  You are direct violation of Penis Rule #3.  No running outside nude.

Tornado S: I thought that was Rule #2.

Me: No, that is keep your hands to yourself and don’t touch other people’s privates.  (Which is violated often in this household.)

I walked into the house, released Tornado S, placed Tornado A down with some toys, went and found some new underwear for Tornado S.  I returned to the room, just in time to see Tornado S sprinting out the door to the garage.  I dropped the underwear and strolled after Tornado S because surely he’ll stop at the end of the driveway.

I walk out of the garage to see Tornado S sprinting down the street.

I couldn’t call out.  I couldn’t yell his name.  I couldn’t command him to stop, to come back.  I couldn’t use The Voice.

Because if I opened my mouth, I would have doubled over in laughter.

As it was, little bits of laughter were escaping my tightly closed lips.  I started to walk because I couldn’t run with laughter bubbling inside me.

Of course when he was three houses down, I realized I had to kick it into high gear.  I ran at full speed after the little streaker.  I wondered when was the last time I ran at full speed and realized it was nice to stretch my muscles.  Then I passed Tornado S, turned around, scooped him up, threw him over my shoulder.  I walked home.

The neighbor: (laughing) Fae, my dear, I think the young man is an exhibitionist.

Me: Unfortunately, all my boys are.

At least it makes life more entertaining.

    Our three boys are constantly naked. And outside. Keeps the neighbours away from their tv screens, anyway. Our little bit for the mental health of the street.
