EpiPen Not Included

This week at Vacation Bible School, there was a small degree of panic and pandemonium when a little boy announced he was “allergic to popcorn” while he sat in a room filled with children munching on the midmorning snack.

“We have a child with a popcorn allergy.”
“Can someone find a different snack for him?”
“Different snack?!  No!  You have to get him out of there! This could be an airborn allergy – his airway could close!  There’s popcorn everywhere in there!”
“Someone!  Quick!  Get him out of there!”

When they retrieved him from the scene, the teachers asked him to explain his symptoms.  “Tell us, little guy.  What happens to you when you eat popcorn?”

“Oh, nothing.  I just don’t like it. I’d like to have something else, thank you.”

Three guesses on who might be the mother of this little fire starter.

Two guesses on which of her sons is the culprit.

  3. LOL I love it! I’ve heard it a good bit teaching kindergarten. Recently one of mine had an accident of the second type. She said it was because she has “diabetes”. Diarrhea, dear heart, diarrhea. 😉

    • Oh, how funny! One of my kindergarteners asked me to pray for her parenting to have another baby. She said, “My daddy has a low sperm count, and I’m really quite a blessing.” 🙂

  4. I always know when it’s a Tyler story!

    • You have a handful of your own encounters with him, Miss Emily! 🙂

  5. ROFL Oh, I needed a good laugh today. I love you guys! You always brighten my day.

  6. My kids LOVE to declare that they’re allergic to something/someone they just don’t like but this definitely takes it to a new level. Kids are such a hoot!
