Brettism Hump Day has all the answers

Last night it was the usual chaos during the arsenic hour as I was making dinner. The kids had assembled at the table as I scrambled to get food onto eight waiting plates. Finally the din got so loud that I turned around and yelled "Is it so difficult to JUST BE QUIET???"

Emma looks up and starts to reply, but Brett cuts her off. "Em-ma, you're going to get us in more trouble. And that was called a rhetorical question. That means you should know the answer by how loudly she asks the question."

I've never heard the term arsenic hour, but oh is it so appropriate! I guess so named since it's the time of day you're most likely to slip arsenic into your hubbys dinner? Sounds about right to me! :)

Brilliant Brett.

He sounds like a handful but I still want one! How do you not just immediately go from wits end to a huge grin when you hear something like that?
