Barking Spider

OK, so I debated on posting this or not, but I couldn't resist. Gavin said the funniest thing the other night. Now, if Boyd had said something like this, I would have rolled my eyes and made some remark about his junior high humor. But, when Gavin said it with all innocence, we couldn't stop laughing. It was Saturday night at 9:30 at night when Gavin should have been in bed. We were exhausted from our long bike ride earlier that day and we were still wet from being caught in the rain (see previous post.) We were sitting around the table, feeling a bit dejected, when Gavin passed some gas. Here is the conversation that followed that noise:

Boyd: I think I heard a barking spider.
[a slightly confused look on Gavin's face]
Boyd: Did I hear a barking spider?
[slowly, a smile of recognition creeps across Gavin's face]
Gavin: Noooooo! That's not a barking spider! That was a toot... or a burp in my bum!

We started laughing so hard. Needless to say, we all were in better spirits after that! I am sorry, if you are offended by this, but it was something I just had to record!

Kids are so great! I've never heard a toot explained like that before, but it kinda makes sense. :)
