The Scariest Word in the English Language, When Screamed By An Unusually Tall Five-Year Old Standing At the Foot of Your Mattress at 6 A.M.
"Mom, I'm snowed in with the boys' swim team."
(and you actually prefer that she stay put since you don't want to try driving out there and you certainly don't want some sixteen-year old boy trying to drive her home. they had a slumber party. ok, the girl managers slept at a neighbor's house).
Although I think scarier words are "I just threw up."
"Dad, dad, wake up. I'm on the Internet and I need your credit card number ... ummm, never mind. I found your wallet."
