Recently, E3.11 climbed up on my bed where I was laying, staring at the ceiling. Instead of cuddling in next to me, she stretched out on top of me, so we were both laying there, staring up. Then she farted on me. It was loud, long and stank. The conversation following it went like this:
Me: "Oh, gross E3.11! You don't climb up here and fart on me! Go fart on daddy!"
E3.11: "I didn't fart." (in between giggles)
Me: "Uh, yeah, you did and it was disgusting."
E3.11: "No I didn't."
Me: "Yes. You did. Don't lie to me."
E3.11: "I did not fart. Just ask Sister."
Then she shifted a little bit to the right, looked back at where she had been and said in a slightly deeper voice: "She's telling the truth. She did not fart."
She slid back over to her original position and using her normal voice, said: "See. Even Sister agrees. I didn't fart."
Can you believe that she came up with that?!?!?!? Not even 4 years old, and she's creating eye-witnesses to defend a lie. She's headed for a life of crime. But she's cute and silly and keeps us smiling.
And she didn't fart. Even Sister agrees, and you can't argue with that.
