Do you remember the Art Linkletter show, "Kids Say the Darnedest Things"? I had my own little version of the Art Linkletter show going on yesterday, I just had to share the story with you.
The house was first on our list of 7 homes. The showing instructions said "Call list office, log in and go". So I did. (I also made a call to the listing agent and left a message, never heard back.) I was told the house was vacant, just go and sell!
The house is a small cottage in a lake community. As I pulled up I realized someone was there. They were unaware of the showing, but as long as we didn't mind the grandkids, 2 boys, 4 and 5 years old, then by all means come in! The boys followed us around the entire time, I tried to keep them occupied when I realized they were not going to let my clients really look at the house. I got to see pirate ships and sailboats, cars and trucks, all sorts of fun things.
Off we went to the other homes on our list. At the end of the tour my client asked if we could go back to the first house again. Sure, no problem! The owners had been so kind before, certainly they would be happy to see us coming back for a second look! I was right, they were thrilled. They answered all sorts of questions my clients and I had, they were VERY helpful!
Again the boys descended on us like stink on poop. Right underfoot, from one room to the next. And this is a very small house, my clients were being so patient and kind to them. Mrs. Client turns to the boys and asks them if they are twins...
With a big smile the older one answers...
That sent my clients and myself into a fit of laughter and their grandparents blushing! He continues on...
"Lots of people think we're regular twins, Mommy says we're IRISH TWINS".
Yes indeed, out of the mouths of babes. A perfect Art Linkletter moment!
