Gaffe a Minute

Gaffe a Minute is my favorite new find on the Web. It's a website dedicated to stories about embarrassing mistakes, clumsy blunders and kid's innocent sayings.

Here're a couple of stories from the "Slips of the Young" category:

Kiss and Tell
My kindergartner was disgusted: a girl in his class liked him. She followed him everywhere and talked to him nonstop. Then one day he returned from school distraught. Kaitlyn had kissed him! “Where did she kiss you?” I asked, thinking, Forehead? Cheek? Lips? My son answered in a dramatic, horrified whisper: “In the library!”

Burning Issue
Our local firefighters taught my six-year-old’s class what to do if they ever caught on fire. Several days later, while cooking dinner, I accidentally set off our smoke alarm. My son, who happened to be standing nearby, suddenly dove to the floor and started rolling across it while yelling, “Stop! Drop! And roll!”
—Katie

Ali S. your remark reminded me of this story : I live in an area with very few black persons, and upon seeing one, my kid said loudly in a supermarket "daddy, why this guy is all in chocolate?".
Cute and embarrasing.
Fortunately my cousin recently adopted a little kid from Ethiopia : he will help me a lot with my kid's education ;)
