"I'm a little bully" - so says my mom!

When I was a teenager I discovered a box of audio tapes my parents used to record and send to my grandparents.  (Long-distance phone calls were too expensive!) 

In one audio recording, my dad asks the 3 or 4 year old me, "Marty, what's your shirt say?" 

I reply, "Jesus loves me." 

Dad snickers mildly and says, "No, Marty!  I think it says, 'I'm a little bully.'" 

I retort that it says 'Jesus loves me' and the conversation shifted gears.

Curious about this as a teen, I questioned my mom.  I let her listen to the audio and asked her to explain. 

She replied matter-of-factly.  "Oh, your shirt said, 'I'm a Little Bully.'  I just told you it said, 'Jesus loves me.'"

Thanks Mom!!!
