When I Say, "Beat"

I was trying to rush the older kidlets along on getting dressed for church Sunday morning. They were playing and hiding under a blanket in the kitchen. I lured The Girl out and tried to make a game of moving them into my room where I'd laid out their clothes. I started to race and said, "Come on, we can beat your brother." She laughed, said, "Okay!" and ran over and started kicking the blanket he was hiding under, yelling, "Beat! Beat!"

And so remember folks, be very careful what you say. They may not mean to others what you meant them to mean.
