- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
One evening at bedtime, my eight year old daughter was playing hide and seek under the blankets on the bed. When I entered the room to look for her, you would not have known by looking at the bed that she was under the blankets. However, the dead giveaway was her pump laying out from under the blankets, which she didn't realize. I immediately burst out laughing and said, "Your pump gave you away." Now it has become a big joke at bedtime.
