A to Z Honesty - H is for Hickey

Annnnnnnd here's how the Friday night sleepover went: 

This was on my son's neck when I picked him up Saturday morning.
Apparently he ran into the rare and rabid Eatibus Anythingus Hooverus Vulgaris.

  1. I think this falls into the category of an "oops." But I'm not sure; mom will decide.

    1. You could write a horror story featuring deadly Hoovers. OR maybe you could fit one in to your next romance!

  5. The good thing is, hickies aren't directly responsible for grandbabies named Briana!

  6. I KNEW this foray into girl/boy land was going to be dangerous. Next time, send him with extra food to share. It might keep the blood suckers away.

  21. My daughter's friend stopped over one day with a hickey. Noooo! That means my daughter is old enough and I am just not ready to see a hickey on her. Or even think about it.

  23. Let us all know if the sharing of the photo on the blog prevents it happening again, will you? A whole new parenting idea, perhaps?

  28. Really? (Hadn't thought about a hickey in years, but, ahem, know what it is, LOL.)

    1. Kind of hard to hide that one from the parents! haha

    2. Oh yah Chuck? And what IS that name? (That reminds me - I used to have a boss whose last name was Hickey...)

      Delete
    3. Kathy, I think he was actually kinda PROUD of it... he made no attempt at hiding it and only took a little persuading for the photo. I think it's a sign of vast manhood or something... a pagan ritual... or maybe he's just like the honey badger, because honey badgers don't care!

    4. Part of my family are the Hickeys. They're all crazy, every one of them. They'd tell you so.

  30. Boy, are you gonna get it, Cathy, when revenge kicks in!!!

    Poor lad - what a Mum, brandishing the 'evidence' around! (and not just locally - she went all out and gave it the 'global' treatment via the internet!!!)

  32. I remember how secretly proud and delighted I was about my first big hickey. The teasing didn't wipe the smile off my face. :D

  33. Your son must be the same age as mine! I always find it quite disturbing ... kind of like post pissing disturbing. But maybe that is the mother in law in me speaking.

How's it going, eh? It's SO good to hear from you. Tell me every darn thing...
