Squelch and other stories

I'm the one writing this. -- Michael


Ryan was up much too late. We were on our way home from an evening with some friends and Ryan was giving all the classic signs of a grumpy baby. As we turned out of the parking lot, the tires made a sound squeeking*squelch* sound.

I said to Caroline in a joking voice "You made the tires squelch!". A few moments latter Ryan started laughing and said in a loud voice "SQUELCH!".

I said "What's so funny Ryan? Do you think it's funny when we say 'Squelch'?". He broke down in hysterics. Caroline and I couldn't resist

squelch Squelch SQUELCH SQUELCH!

He was laughing so hard he could barely breathe. Every time he'd start to calm down, Caroline and I would say squelch again and again and he's just laugh and laugh like a maniac.

After about 10 or so minutes it didn't make him laugh as much and as he gained composure, it was his turn to be the funny one.

"ummm... SQUELCH!" he yelled.

We laughed.

*Squelch* he said in a high girly voice.

Now we were laughing at him.

His squelching continued till we got him into bed, and periodically the next day. 'Squelch' will still make him smile, but it's not as funny as it was before. :-)
