Ever had a moment that just left you thinking, “AWKWARD!”? We all have. One of mine came during a building trip to Mexico. There were a few young boys that hung around the area we were working, and they had fun playing with our tools or showing us things they discovered. Lorenzo in particular was very good at this. One day after wandering the dry grassy area around our site, he announced that he found something cool. I went over to look, and he shoved a dead horny-toad in my face! Ummm…. thanks. At least I had the camera ready for this shot! 😉
Lorenzo was also a fan of the bracelets our team made. He wore his proudly, though they were only simple beaded strings we gave out to the kids and families we met. We did not make enough for everyone, however, so our team didn’t keep any for ourselves. After showing off his toad, Lorenzo noticed that I wasn’t wearing one, so he took the bracelet off his arm and handed it to me. Awwwww! How sweet! I pulled a translator over to tell him I was very thankful, but he should share it with his family. He just looked at her and boldly declared in Spanish, “Don’t worry, I have four!” He then emptied his pockets to prove it. Haha, oh well. It’s the thought that counts.
Kids say the craziest things! What’s your favorite kid story?
