My Mom is a Ninja…
Seven year old Kaleb is a big Ninja fan. He eats, sleeps and drinks Ninja stuff. When he isn’t slashing imaginary enemies in the bath tub, he is sneaking around the house trying (in vain) to be as quiet as Kung-fu on rice paper, practicing his skills.
Kaleb says when he grows up he wants to be a Ninja. One day he was extolling the virtues of being a Ninja to his Mom and she surprised him by telling him her little (or maybe big?) secret. Kaleb’s Mom is secretly a Ninja! Of course he protested, “Nah, Mom you’re not a Ninja. You’re just teasing!”
Mom tried to convince Kaleb of her Ninja prowess, but he wasn’t buying it. Right at that moment there was a pesky fly crawling up the wall. Mom said “Look, I’ll show you, watch this…” Mom then proceeded to make a Ninja yell and whapped the fly dead, right then and there, on the wall using her hand as a well skilled Ninja would. Kaleb was in awe!
“See, I told you,” his Mom said. She also said he had to keep it a secret, you know, any self-respecting Ninja does not blab to the world, about their special Ninja status. Now though, when Kaleb tells people what he wants to be when he grows up he says, “I want to be a Ninja, just like my Mom.”
Many thanks to my co-worker, Heather, who told me this true story, I just tried to creatively write it down.
