Funny day at the aquarium

Three funny things happened at the aquarium yesterday... First, while we were all walking to the aquarium, Ree tripped and smacked into the sidewalk so hard that folks nearby gasped. Their gasps quickly turned to snickers when, instead of crying, she immediately grabbed the precious churro she had dropped and started blowing it off while saying adamantly to us "It ok, it clean, I blow it off, I can still eat it." Second, while we were in the splash zone, Ro and Ree were jostling around with a bunch of other kids at a water play area and a little boy opened his mouth really wide and chomped down on Ro's hand. I pulled Ro out of there and told his mom, "Oh my gosh, he just bit my daughter!" But instead of apologizing or talking to the little boy about it, the lady just looked at me kind of vaguely, shrugged a little, and said "Well he was playing with that toy first..." Wow. IMG_0917 Then, while we were waiting in line to get back into the aquarium after lunch, an older man in a khaki-colored jacket stepped around Ro and Ree to cut in front of us. No big deal, and I didn't even give it another thought until TubaDad later whispered, "Did you see who that man and woman were?" I can't believe he was so right and I was so oblivious! Grabbed a quick surreptitious video of them later, can you tell who they are from my dark little video? Heh. Funky day.

  2. For sure - HF and CF. Rude beyond belief - but I live near Malibu and see these privileged characters all the time. They are a horse of a different color!

  3. Man... he looks old, doesn't he? But yet again, your girls crack me up. Someone needs to tell Ree that the Food Detectives totally disproved the five second rule. Which increases my guilt and ick factor, but somehow doesn't seem to change my behavior.

  4. Oh man, have a great comment somewhere up here rattling around in my head, but can't seem to get over the PISSED that is rolling off of me at the bite incedent. Oh no she didn't...... am big on public scenes, apparently, because I'd have had words for that kind of "parenting".

  7. Your girls are too cute! I probably would've done what Ree did. A churros? Can't let a single one go to waste!

    I hope Ro is okay. Sometimes I do wonder what these parents would do if it were the other way around.

  8. OMG ~ Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart!! I can't believe they cut in front of the cuties!

    I cannot believe the bite incident ~ some parents are soooooo unbelievable!!

  9. I cannot believe that the Mom of the bitting child did not think anything of her child's behavior!!! Incredible.

    Unless someone else points out who a person is I have no clue. Too much into my own life. ;)

  10. Harrison Ford was my first guess too... If that's Calista Flockhart in the black sweater than she looks much healthier than her Ally McBeal days.

    No wonder why the boy is so rude, with a mom like that!!!
    Unbelievable how some parents are clueless!
    Today we were at an indoor playground and there were too many big kids (too big for that place, there is a sign at the entrance with the rules, and those kids were too tall for those toys). The security guard asked them to leave. They did, but as soon as the guard left, they returned, with the consent of their mothers!!! Conclusion: we had to leave!!!

  14. JERKS! Some days are filled with them. Glad all the Salsas survived falls, bites, and incredibly rude people cutting in front of children in line, pretending to be greater than thou.

  15. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart and their child Liam(?) He looks like Liam's grandad, which he is old enough to be really, isn't he?

  16. Weird day and that Churro comment cracked me up totally! I loved your undercover video ;-)

    Thanks for the great advice about marking the toys with an initial. 25 years of experience and I had not thought of that one...LOL I will be marking tomorrow!

    Hugs my friend!

  17. Man, I thought Harrison Ford always seemed pretty rude when he was on late night shows... and apparently he's just as rude in person. Grrrr.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Good eye! I had to watch the video a couple of times and still struggled with it. He just didn't look like himself... older I guess. But how RUDE! Oh well... I guess they are people too but how presumptuous! Cutting off anyone let alone two sweet little girls. And the hand biter? UGH! Don't even want to go there. Glad the rest of the day was nice! :)

  19. Some people's kids!! So rude!

    Fun times at the aquarium! Neat video stalking friend!

  20. Am in shock over Little Biter & Biter Mom. Nuts!
    And I would have never guessed Harrison Ford & Calista! I'm no good at spotting celebs in the real world. Did you get a look at her ring? I hear they're recently engaged.

  21. At first I thought 'Is that John Derek'? Then I realized he was dead.

    For sure, Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford. How dare they step in front of Ro and Ree?!? I swear, I'm just like you. I wouldn't have noticed them at all. I only could tell because you gave us all a hint that it was somebody we would know. I've stood in lines at places like the airport and had totally normal talks with people only to be told later, "Do you know who that was??" haha I'm oblivious. People are people to me! But, then there's the Mom of the boy who bites. Geez. What's UP with some people?!?!?

    Which aquarium is that at? We went to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo yesterday and got to feed sea lions and pet sting rays...it was pretty fun!

    ReplyDelete
  24. First, I would have bit her!!
    Okay, maybe not, but the thought would have crossed my mind.
    My first thought on who that was, Christopher Walken!
    :)
    That's funny!

    wow rude parent

  27. I thought Harrison Ford before I hit the play button. I think that still image makes his profile easier to identify.

    Likely I would have noticed earlier than you since I would have been commenting loudly about how rude they were! :) I would have been wound a little tighter than ususal after the bite incident!

  28. Your girls crack me up!!!

    I recognized his voice and then Calista Flockhart. Interesting!

    I think it was funny the way you filmed them. Kudos to you, I would have been too embarrased, and wished I had done it later. Thanks for catching it for us!

  29. I agree..HF does look a little old and she looks even thinner then on TV. I wish you would have ask her if they were bringing Tommy back on B&S..lol (I just love that show:)
    I can not get over some parents..wow. Sounds like a FUN day even with the bitter and his ignorant mom!!

  30. Hi guys, it was Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I guess Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart too. It was hard to tell at first but could you imagine if you had said excuse me the lines back there or something. I wonder what he would've said.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It makes me mad that parents like the biter's mom that get to have as many kids as they want, and no one stops them, and WE normal people had to fill out forms and be fingerprinted and investigated. Don't get me started. grrr

    And Harrison Ford pales in comparison to your Salsa Twins!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Why do people expect celebs to behave any differently than other people? LOTS and LOTS of adults cut in front of people in line. Just sayin.' As for the parent of the biter? You should have gotten up and bit her; hag. It appalls me when parents just smile and shurg and make excuses.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So I say sell that video to TMZ and that will teach him not to cut in line again!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I loved the stories. But you made me miss the aquarium. We are gonna be there in July and I really miss those otters.

    I am sorry for the rude people. Rude people stink!
