The "magic" word

I've really been into my camera lately.

I really love to shoot pics.

No, really.

So, yesterday while Dave took the family up to a friend's lake house to measure some windows, I grabbed my camera and did a little shootin'.

So...we had a slow start:

Then, I told him to "smile for mom, bug!"

And I got this:


So, I said, "A smile with teeth, please."

He got all literal on me.

So...then I hauled out the big guns.

I said the "magic word."

The word that no one can say around him without him plunging into pools of laughter:

I looked at him.

Me:  Hey C, you're really going to make me say it???

C:  Say what?

Me:  The magic word.

C: What, please???

Now...when you say the magic word, you need to say it correctly.

You have to use your diaphragm to push the word up from the bottom of your stomach.

A gravely voice helps too.

And lower the tone a few octaves...

Me:  Hey.....

(dramatic pause)

He looked at me expectantly.


" just made your mom say BUTT for the sake of a picture"

Priceless. That "real" smile is a winner!
