Woah! - don't say that name round here :)
Boy, your lucky he didn't scream out loud that Lord Voldemort was in the man's turban. Children are simply masters at embarassing you in public. I'd say that the discreet hand holding got you off easy. ;)
A woman I knew brought her small son to a drive-through restaurant.
The lady in the drive-through window was older, and wearing a LOT of makeup.
It was the week of Halloween.
So the small child blurts out, very loudly, to the drive-through worker...
"HEY LADY! I LIKE YOUR MASK!"
Yeah. You're lucky to get off with sudden hand holding.
That's the problem with children. They tell the honest truth. They haven't yet learned to lie, to protect other peoples feelings.
Maybe the lady at the drive-thru will use less makeup next time :)
Hmm Had a situ back in Novemebr with a friends daughter. We went up to Bradford and were looking around, now my home town, Colchester, is mainly white european in its make up, so seeing someone in traditional Asian dress is really very rare.
Now im with a 6 year old whose never seen this before and shouts about the novelty of this fact in less than complimentary terms, you can imagine I just wanted the earth to open up and swallow me whole.
I don't really remember this, but one time when i was like 2-4 (somewhere in there) i was at the store with my mom, and was sitting in the cart, and we pushed past a somewhat large man, Apparently I poked him in the stomach and asked him "How come you're so fat?"
Luckily the guy had a good sense of humor... but i'm sure I completely embaressed my mom.
My toddler and I were out grocery shopping. Ahead of us in line was a "very generously proportioned" lady wearing bulging track pants with black-and-white jersey cow spots (you see these kinds of things in Cambridge, ON).
well, this little girl of mine started pointing and hollering "MOOOOOO! cow! COW! MOOOOOOO!" at the poor lady, who turned beet red and waddled away as quickly as she could...
Unfortunately, my daughter has an uncle... my brother... I never asked him to teach my sweet little cutie to yell "MULLET! LOOK A DADDY ANOVER MAN WITH A MULLET HAIR!"
but wow it sure is funny when she does it in public
My mom told me about a little boy who exclaimed in a carrying voice his excitement over seeing "trucks" at a construction site.
Only (as with many toddlers) his consonant pronunciation wasn't so good, with "trucks" starting with an "F" sound.
One can only imagine the misimpression and embarassment.
I'm sure that one is going to become an urban legend.

*ahem* If you don't want small children to yell "MOOOOO!" at you, you shouldn't go out wearing cow-spotted clothing. ;)
