Recently overheard at our house

“Mom. Honestly. It’s called a turn signal.  You should try using one some time.”


“Why do kids say ‘KK’ now instead of ‘OK?'”

“I think it’s because it’s easier to spell.”

“…. Are you messing with me?”


“Somebody at school told me that gum is made from pig guts, but I know that’s not true because otherwise wouldn’t all gum taste like bacon?”


“Hey, Mom, wanna get tattoos together?”

“Uh, no. Not even a glimmer of want there…”

“Yeah. It’ll be great.  We could get half a mustache tattoo on your hand, and half a mustache tattoo on my hand, and then when we hold hands it will make a complete mustache. It’s called bonding, Mom.”


“Hear that? It’s God. He’s saying, ‘Stop touching my food with your bare hands.'”


“Do you want to watch some ‘Curious George?'”

“Yeah. I love it. I love that little monkey.”


“Peanut!  We do not hit Sissy with our duck!”

“It’s sort of absurd, really. Who, other than a two-year-old, would hit someone with a duck?”
