|The Gremlin at the Museum of Flight’s Free Family Fun with Firemen Day|
The Gremlin has been in rare form the last few days – driving his parents crazy like never before, so the Mother of the Gremlin jumped at the chance to take him and the Arch-Gremlin to the playground to drive each other crazy.
During a lull in their playing, the Arch-Gremlin turned to the Gremlin and smacked him on the shoulder. The Gremlin didn’t miss a beat, and spoke softly.
“Jasp-air, if you do that again I’m going to have to hit you back.” The Arch-Gremlin, also four, decided she needed to respond to this.
“If you do that I’ll cry and tell my mom.” Unlike last time, the Gremlin was one step ahead of her.
“But I’ll tell my mom first, so let’s just not.” This was apparently acceptable to the Arch-Gremlin.
Just a few minutes later, she turned and smacked him again.
“Jasp-air! We just talked about this!”
“I know. I just wanted to see what would happen.”
“Okay, but I am getting very frustrated with you.”
A short time later they were playing at the water table, when the Gremlin turned and sprayed the Arch-Gremlin in the face. As soon as she recovered, the Gremlin looked over and bounced his curls in innocence.
“What? It was an accident.”
“No it wasn’t!”
“You’re right, it wasn’t. But i’m pretty sure it wasn’t an accident when you hit me earlier.”
“No, it wasn’t.”
And with that, the two went back to their playing without further incident.
