Photo Story Friday: High Octane....I'm on Fire!!!

Here I am at 12:22am, still awake.....with a short 7 hours before I should be rolling out of bed. For some reason, I can't fall asleep; and since it is technically Friday, I will go ahead and do my PSF post!!!
PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Last week, we had Joe's mom, sister and brother-in-law over for dinner, drinks and to watch the Florida vs. Oklahoma National Championship football game. We had (chicken) wings before our pizza and decided to have some fun with the kids. We got 20 crispy medium wings and 10 "high-octane" wings; and we bet (or dared) the boys to eat one...only one of the high octane wings for $ 10 and bragging rights!! Of course Cj wouldn't even touch one (he is my p-i-c-k-y eater); Joseph wanted to do it, but I thought he might be too little for so much "power".....So, along came Ethan...he will always try any new matter how they look and he is always up for a bet!!!

The FIRST bite...not so bad..............yet!!

Uhhhh...yea...he's on fire at this point!!!
He did it...he ate one whole high-octane wing....and he won full bragging rights (which are SOOO important to siblings)...oh, and of course he won his $10....not bad for 1 minute of his time!!
He was a great sport...... even though it took a whole can of Dr. Pepper, an ice pack, a glass of milk and a slice of pizza to get the "fire" out.... oh and a tummy ache for the rest of the night!!! Oh well, he'll surely remember it for a real long time!!!
BTW- we did let Joseph try it out--- we took a medium wing and dipped one side of it (lightly) in the high octane sauce.... he loved it, but was on fire himself too!!! All for the love of a good bet!!!

That's so funny. What an easy way to get $10!

Michelle said...

LOL! What a hoot!

Honey Mommy said...

I would eat one of those for $10 too! Great job buddy!

Chris said...

Not for 10 bucks -- I'm a coward at heart

Congratulations to Florida!

WOW! I wouldn't have been able to pull that off unless I had a big glass of milk! But all worth it for him, I'm sure. $10 bucks go a long way when you're that age! haha
