Wax Paper Kazoo, and You Can Too!

I made the mistake this morning of introducing the low technology kazoo: wax paper held against one's lips.

Me: So here's how you do you it. [Holds wax paper to lips.]
Ooooooooooo!

Him: Let me try! [Takes the piece I hold out to him.]
Oooooooooo! [Rattle, rattle]

Me: Hahahahaha!

Him: OOOOOOOOOOOO!

Me: Haha!

Him: Oooooooooooooo! [Dances around kitchen.] OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Me:

Him: [Prancing like a sprite.] OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Me: Maybe you should go in the other room and do that.

Him: [Hears only a Charlie Brown teacher voice. Keeps leaping around kitchen.]

Me: May you should--

Him: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Me: [Eyes jingle in head. Picks up wax paper.]
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Look on the bright side: at least it isn't a tin whistle! And MY kids have a full drum kit...

I can still remember the pained look my father would get whenever we wrapped our combs up in paper and 'played' them.

Give a man a kazoo and he'll wonder what it is. Teach him to play a kazoo and he'll be annoying forever.

Funny post, Danette!!

My grandma use to say, "If sooner or later it is going to annoy you, then don't teach a child to do it."

There were times during my childhood that my parents wished I had not picked up talking so well...grin...
