Um . . . Maybe?

October 19, 2022

“Is it a full moon?” L’s mother asked me last night. (It wasn’t.) “Because my teeth feel extra sharp tonight.”

Now some people would find this a strange thing to say, but not me since I knew exactly what she was talking about. What I found strange was what she (without any intent of being funny) said next:

“Oh well, are you ready to try that blood, I mean bread pudding I made?”

L. Was The One Who Pointed Out She’d Gotten The Date Wrong

March 2, 2022

It was easy for me to remember my anniversary this year because L’s Mother helpfully marked it on the calendar . . . incorrectly, but she did mark it.

Point To The Boy For That One

July 28, 2020

Yesterday the “Not-So-Brave Hero” was sighted around here, and (for some reason) he was being attacked by soldiers, leading to the following exchange:

The Not-So-Brave Hero (a.k.a., me): Why are you even attacking me in the first place? What are you, some kind of heedless horseman?!

Soldier #1 (a.k.a., my son): I don’t even have a horse, so that makes me a “steedless” horseman!

My Mother On Gender Neutral Bathrooms

January 14, 2019

Mom:  I don’t know what the big deal is.  At some point in our lives every one of us has used the men’s bathroom when the line to the lady’s was too long.

Me:  I know I have.

Overheard While L. And Lala Were Playing Chess

December 24, 2018

Lala: (after L. had taken her pawn)  Bye, pawn!

L:  You know what they say, “let ‘bye pawns’ be ‘bye pawns‘”.

To Her Credit, She Realized What She Had Just Done Even Before I Could Say “Really?”

November 2, 2018

Last night while talking with Lala we were both struggling to come up with the right term for something when she looked at me and said, “Why can’t English be more like German where you can just take two words and mash them together like some sort of . . . uberword.”

It Takes Actual Wisdom To Listen Though

Sometimes wisdom sounds like you telling yourself that now is not the time to be funny.

It Was Surprisingly Catchy

January 11, 2018

It’s always funny to me what’s funny to me after two nights of little to no sleep.  Today in my son’s virtual school his teacher put up a link for a song and the link didn’t work despite numerous attempts on her part.

So that’s how my son and I ended up singing several enthusiastic (if tuneless) rounds of “Service Unavailable . . . HTTP . . . Error 503 . . . This Service Is UNavailable!”

But Where’s The Fun In That?

December 18, 2017

Recently I started watching Ash vs Evil Deadnothing particularly surprising in that fact, but it did give me an odd moment when I went to make a phone call right after watching an episode.  For one moment having “Evil” on my contacts list took on a whole new meaning . . .

(His actual name is “Evel,” presumably after Evel Knievel, of course.)

Sure, I’d Assembled A Desk, But That Hardly Seems In The Same Category!

July 10, 2017

From a phone conversation with someone whose morning was far more eventful than mine:

Them:  So far this morning I’ve had coffee, [redacted], and I’m getting ready for a shower.

Me:  I haven’t even had coffee yet!
