This is one of the not so funny stories that is best saved for embarrassment in the future.
One morning when Daddy was in Australia, Mommy was getting the kids ready for school. The clothes Tessa picked out could not be worn because of the bad weather, and she refused all other suggested outfits.
Tessa: I don't know what to wear. I don't want to wear anything in this closet.
Mommy: You'd better pick out something. I don't want to have to send you to school in your pajamas.
Tessa: You would not do that!
Mommy: Oh yes I would.
An hour later, Tessa was still laying on the floor in front of her closet in her pajamas.
Tessa: I'm not putting on any clothes and I'm not going to school today!!!
Mommy: We'll see about that.
Mommy picked her up and carried her out to the car in her pajamas and drove her to school. When they got to the school, Mommy asked to have the school counselor speak with Tessa about the importance of attending school. The counselor was not available, so the "Acting" Vice-Principal came and had a little chat with Tessa. She spent the rest of the day at school in her pajamas.
Zach was watching the entire scene very, very quietly. He said only one thing on the entire ride to his school.
Zach: Mommy, I will never, ever do what Tessa did.
After school, Mommy and Tessa had a discussion.
Mommy: So, how did it feel to have to talk to the Vice-Principal and go to school in your pajamas?
Mommy: That wasn't embarrassing to have to talk to the Vice-Principal?
Tessa: No, because he is really just my Math teacher.
