Dad Story: Transfer of Blame

Another quick excerpt from February 2004:

Mom and Dad had a hilarious argument tonight.  Dad is working on selling this commerative postal cancellations in June.  He started to describe the final product and to better illustrate he got out the frame and cancelled envelope and started to assemble an example for me.

"Why don't you show her the sample you already made?" Mom asked.

"BECAUSE ANNE!" Dad snapped, "I gave that to my friend– I told you that!!!"

"You never told me that," Mom said, "When would have you told me that?"

Dad's response was swift.  He didn't even skip a beat, "I never told you!  But you should know still.  What do you think, I'm an idiot?  I'm going to spend all this time making one when I already have one done?!?  Is that what you think?!?"

Neither Mom or I could respond.  We were too busy cracking up.

I've never seen such a quick transition from admitting blame to accusation!  🙂
