i'm not calling him a liar....

so i told yall "going to school" was something new we started this year with my son. and he's been going this summer too. so i take him to school a few weeks ago and theres a pony there. so like everyday i ask him, "did you have fun today"..his answer is usually no. sometimes he'll surprise me and say yes. i'll ask him, "did you learn something today?"..his answer is usually no. so this day his answers were, "yes..". so i said, did you get on the pony? and his answer was yes.

 now, i'm an active father and i know my son. i've taken my son to the zoo. i've taken him to carnivals..all kinda places with ponies. and he always gets scared of the ponies. like he don't want to get near them. and i admit when i was a child, i didn't like ponies either. in fact i didn't like any animals. probably why i refuse to touch any till this day. so i ask him, "you weren't scared of the pony?". and my son is not a talker like that, but his reply was "no i not scared of no pony". so i was like, "oh shit.." so i start telling everyone he got on the pony. so i'm talking to his mom. i tell her they had a pony at school and he got on it. she was surprised as hell too.

so yesterday she calls me. and she's like, "i thought you said he got on the pony". and i'm like he did. and she's like, "they sent a disc of the kids on the pony. he was NOT on the pony. in fact he wasn't anywhere near the pony. i see all the other kids on the pony... ". so i'm like did you ask him? and she's like yes. i said, did you get on the pony and he said yes. so i'm like..well maybe they didn't take a picture of him on the pony. and she's like.."he didn't get on no damn pony". i'm saying why she gotta call the boy a liar? so i'm like, "you think he's lying?" and she's like.."he ain't get on no damn pony..."so i'm like put him on the phone. and he gets on the phone and i ask him, "you rode the pony at school?" and he says yes. so who do i believe. him or his mama or the pictures? i have to admit i'd believe him over his mama anyday. but the pictures..do they lie? we'll find out today. because i know she's been waiting all weekend to take him to school and ask. so i expect a call at 9:01am telling me, "he didn't get on no damn pony" cause she like to be right.

*update from yesterday*: HE DID RIDE THAT DAMN PONY!

@beyond danielle: not that she thinks he's a liar. he just says "no" a lot and "yes" when he's in the mood.

@dabossbitch & alovelydai: he DID ride the pony. he just wouldn't take a picture on it when they got ready for pictures.
