the other day i was taking beans to go babysit at our cousin's house. on the way there i needed to stop and buy gas.
me - jill have you ever pumped gas before?
beans - no.
me - jill!!!! you have to learn.
beans - i don't really want to.
me - oh my gosh beans. just let me teach you.
i finally convince beans and i teach her how to pump the gas. after the gas is done pumping i tell beans that all you have to do is pull out the gas hose and put it back in place. she says ok then i start texting on my phone. the next thing i hear is HELLLLLLLLLLLLLP! i look over and all i see is gas going EVERYWHERE. i start laughing so hard i ALMOST pee my pants. beans, of course, is crying but then eventually starts laughing along too. then i start crying from laughing so hard. we are a laughing/crying mess.
i clean up the car and ask beans how she could have possibly sprayed gas everywhere and tell her to go to the bathroom and wash her whole body down. when i walk in she is super sad because she wants to go to babysit right now. i give her a spare shirt, wash her down super good, then we are off to babysit.
later mom gets a phone call. some how i knew what it was about. i start to sulk in the couch when i hear, "NICOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLE." i think i started cracking up again and then had to repeat the whole story.
what a great day.
