Bizarre truths

Do you ever wonder if your kids are telling the truth simply because their story is so bizarre?

Vee and Kee: "We went to Ultimate practice today and there was one really short kid who tried to do a throw when a really big kid blocked it with his knee. The short kid might have a broken arm. One of the guys called his mom. His mom called the paramedics. The paramedics couldn't get in because the gates to the field were locked."

Me: "Well, then, how did you get in if the gates were locked?"

Vee and Kee: "We all jumped the fence..."

Me: "The whole team?"

Vee and Kee: "Well, yeah."

Me: "Where was the coach?"

Vee and Kee: "Stuck in a meeting at work. So, the paramedics got there and couldn't get in so they called the fire department so they could bring their ladder. You know, they couldn't get the kid out since he couldn't climb the fence with the broken arm... then the mom showed up and the coach showed up with the key to the gate and he let everybody in. And THEN the fire truck showed up with the ladder."

Me: shaking head, "Are you serious?"

Of course.
