Ethan-6yr, regarding the shape of Caden-2yr’s grilled cheese sandwich: That is the exact elephant that is thirsty enough to drink the river of China dry.
Caden-2yr (beaming, over the special quality of his sandwich): YEAH.
Then he proceeds to walk his special elephant sandwich all over the table, while making elephant noises. (note: want one of these special sandwiches? take a small bite out of a grilled cheese triangle. voila.) Ethan-6yr and Seth-1yr join in the thirsty elephant chorus and BOY are they loud, and it becomes apparent that NO WAY is anyone eating that so-special elephant that is so thirsty it could drink the river of China dry.
No. I don’t have a clue what he’s talking about. As usual.
Then we had a little what-is-a-penis and what-is-a-vagina talk, just to round off the night. Yaknow, because those things are important to talk about, and why not right then after the three thirsty elephant brothers stampede through the dining room?
Last week I mentioned that i was considering buying a big washer and dryer. I was particularly pleased by this comment, from Joel*, who clearly thinks I am a level headed appliance shopper:
(Update at end)
I’m going to be so very brief. Friends and family, I’m not talking on the phone. You can thank me now for this because this decision is sparing you a rather unpleasant experience. If ever I had a filter on my face that prevented the stupid/impulsive/mean stuff from flying out of my mouth (note the sentence starts with IF), well, it’s all gone now and hopefully there are current models available that fit and i’ll find one soon.
This pretty much applies to emails, too, since i sent one I’d rather like to have back and of course, can’t. I used to do that sort of thing quite a bit, and i thought I was passed it. Hmm. Guess not.
Earlier tonight I looked at Mike and said, ‘i think i’m going to just not say much. You know… try to watch that ugly mouth of mine.’
He nodded slowly, feigning slow agreement, when he was probably really shouting AMEN SISTER inside and WHAT TOOK SO LONG? Anyway.
My life is wonderful. Not a thing to complain about or be nasty about. Nothing happened to bring this on. It’s just here. For now.
Please, please, let’s pray it away, y’all! (Thanks.)
UPDATE: Minutes after I posted this, I discovered… ahem.
Do you think I made it big enough?! (Thanks y’all!)
Best Writing (it’s my love of all things paranthetical, i know)
Best Humor (poo is funny!)
Best Site Design (so true, eWebscapes)
Most Representative of Women (to which I say, okay. This nomination was totally done in JEST by someone really sarcastic. Like Jeana. Or not, and the problem is much larger than Jeana’s hilarious sense of humor and this could actually be true. In which case, let’s update the previous prayer request to include this heartfelt cry: GOD SAVE THE WOMEN!)
Heather at One Woman’s World hosts this great blog contest each year. I can’t even imagine how much work she must put into it. Her site says that voting will begin on Friday, Feb 2. Have fun, and discover some new blogs while you’re there!
