When I Grow Up…

Tina stepped into her friend’s living room to see a blue child jumping up and down.

“When I grow up, I’m gonna be a stained glass painter,” the child said pointing towards her ‘masterpiece’. “Would you be my assistant while I design the bedroom window?”

“Nothing doing,” said her mother, hands on her hips. “You are going into the shower right now!”

*** 10 minutes later ***

“When I grow up, I’m gonna be a bathtub painter.”
