Candid Camera

On a lighter note: Friday, one of my husband’s co-workers saw my husband and stopped in his tracks in the hallway, incredulous, going, WHAT are you DOING?

Another colleague was working from home that day, and going past the guy’s office, Richard had noted the camera on top of the man’s computer there.

So on impulse he’d danced into the room, holding his fingers in the requisite rabbit-ear V’s, jumping up and down dancing and singing the little-kid song, “Little Bunny Foo-Foo, I don’t want to see you…”

The guy at home saw him, though. I imagine it’ll be one of those office stories they laugh over for years.

Oh, youngest DD loved Little Bunny Foo Foo! She was the only one of our three that learned it as a preschooler. Credit goes to her Montessori school.

Thanks for the memory!

Oh no – now that song will be going through my head for hours! “…scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head…” That would be a wonderful video moment if it somehow had been recorded. Remember the time when…

I hated that song as a child… I had rabbits – one was definitely meaner than FooFoo – and I couldn’t believe that someone made a song out of poor little field mice getting bopped on the head…

But funny Richard!!

The song is lost on me, but not the mental image I can create of the situation. hihihi

Short moments like that tend to leave a long impression, don’t they?

I LOVE that song (and yes, now it’s going to be stuck in my head all day too!)

I can just picture him doing this — so funny!!

Well, that song won’t be running through MY head. I don’t know it. But I’d love to see a picture of Richard doing that! Must have been hilarious.

Other fun –

A dry cleaning establishment has been in business for so long that it advertises “Celebrating 50 years of cleaning on the same spot.”

Hehehe…. Long ago I worked in Cashiers at a la-de-da store. A coworker was cranky one morning, before we opened. I told her she was doing it all wrong, and proceeded to show her how to have a real stomp-your-feet-pump-your-arms-tantrum. (Josh was in the thick of his red-hot-haired-twos, so I’d learned from the master). So she followed my lead (we skipped the screaming part) for a minute or two until we realized the security camera aimed at our window. We dropped to the floor in giggles. Made the rest of the day very funny. Later we learned the camera can’t see in the window. Whew!

I remeber that from when I was a child:)
There is an award for you on my blog:)Hugs Darcy

Heh. Like I always say, what’s the point of being grown-up if you can’t act childish. What would make the story even better would be if the co-worker at home was drinking a beverage at the time of the dancing and sprayed his monitor and keyboard while laughing. 🙂

My kids loved that song!! No bopping each other was allowed, however!

Oh, thank you so much for sharing that. Bunny Foo Foo not only belonged to that song in our house when the three youngest were little, but the stories about him could last for car rides, train rides and hours of ill toddlers.
