I have amusing conversations with my kids and overhear funny things almost daily. Here are a few of the gems...
I was going through a drive-thru with 16 yr old Man/Boy. There was a sign outside the drive-up window that said
"Condiments available on request"
Because the word "condiment" still sparks the 12 year old in me and makes me giggle, I said,
"Look honey they will give you condoms on request."
Without missing a beat the Man/Boy said,
"Mom, they just want you to practice safe lunch."
We were riding in a quiet car. No radio and dark outside. The 5 yr old says to his 8 year old brother,
"If you close your eyes and be quiet you relax."
(I did not know he knew how to do either).
I told my 12 year old TanMan he needed to get his Eagle Scout Award by the time he's 18.
He said, "18? 16! Because by 16 I'll be into girls and won't have time for my Eagle"
(glad he's pacing himself)
The TanMan was teasing the Co-Ed who was home for spring break.
"We celebrated the whole time you were gone!"
"Shhh you weren't supposed to tell her" I added.
"Yea, you know you cried," the Co-ed retorted.
TanMan said, "Yea we cried with cake in our mouths!"
(ahhh the love of siblings)
Co-Ed to TanMan "Have you hit puberty yet?"
TanMan, "Yes. Multiple times."
(heaven help me)
TanMan (as you can tell by now he has a very healthy self-esteem) said,
"If you blog about me the computer will explode in awesomeness.
(so I am going to sit back now and enjoy the fireworks)
