Dear Ellen: Was It Really So Bad?

I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres.  Why? Because I Can!

Today’s assignment for the Writer’s Digest October 2015 Platform Challenge is to find an “expert” and email him/her requesting a blog interview.  Hmmm.  I’m going to have to chew on that one.  Until then, here is what you’ve been waiting for!

Dear Ellen,

Yesterday I was at the grocery store with my almost two-year-old. I lifted a container of eggs off the shelf, opening it to make sure none of the eggs were cracked.  As I was closing the container, it slipped out of my hands and all of the eggs spilled out onto the floor.  Two seconds after the great egg slaughter of 2015, a store employee came around the corner. His eyes grew three sizes when he saw the mess.  I pointed toward my daughter and said, “She did it.  Sorry.”  Yes, that’s right. I blamed the great egg slaughter of 2015 on my almost two-year-old.  Was that wrong?

Calling all parents!  Has anyone out there ever made a mess and blamed it on their kids?  Tell me all about it in the comments.  I need to know I’m not the only one!
