When Thing 3 is involved, you never know what he’s going to say. Which means any time spent with him will be entertaining.
I took Thing 2 and Thing 3 to the doctor for their annual checkup. Thing 2 just turned eight and Thing 3 turned six.
As we were walking into the building, there was a frail, elderly man walking slowly with a cane. Thing 3, who never has an unspoken thought, called a lot of attention to the “guy with an old man cane”.
I immediately had flashbacks of being in a men’s locker room with Thing 3 and a noticeably overweight man. So I decided we should take the stairs rather than risk being in a confined space with Thing 3 and the old man.
We were in the examining room. The doctor came in carrying both of their charts.
As Thing 3 climbed up on the table, in nothing but his boxer briefs and a pair of socks, the doctor said, “So you are six years old now.”
Thing 3 exclaimed, “How did you know that!”
It’s the same reaction he has when Santa knows stuff about him.
I noticed he was wearing his underwear inside out. And his socks were also inside out. Why? Because he likes it that way.
Then, out of the blue Thing 3 tells the doctor, “Don’t touch my wiener”.
Just another day with Thing 3. He can make a routine trip to the doctor entertaining.
