Ya Think?

G: I’m still full!
Me: That’s because you had a piece of pizza, Big Mac, Nuggets, large fries, and a 32oz soda.
G: It was a Grand Mac.
Me: (looking up Grand Mac) 😐
G: Well now that you list it, it sounds like a lot.
Me: 😐 Ya think?

Geoff Is Better Than Me

Me: Confession, this morning the fitted sheet came undone when I climbed back in bed. I pulled so hard that your side of the sheet popped off… afraid it woke you up, I quickly hopped back in bed and pretended to be asleep when I saw you stir a few seconds later and watched you fix it.
G: Well the other night, after we …, you fell asleep right in the middle of the bed on top of the blankets, the sheets and everything was all undone. I spent fifteen minutes trying not wake you as I gently moved you, covered you up, fixed the sheets… the blankets… and after all that, you got up to use the bathroom…
Me (interrupting): OH MY GAWD…. I GET IT, YOU’RE BETTER THAN ME!!!!!!!!

My Children Were Cute In The Wrong Era.

Me and one of my previously little ham balls.

In all fairness, my kids are still “funny”, but it’s more in an intentional, “I can be Jerry Seinfeld” kind of way rather than “Kids Say The Darndest Things”. They are funny in the sense that they are grown and are able to write the funny on their social media sites instead of me getting all the glory.

This sucks on a platform of levels:

Ben Carson did an “Ask Ben Carson” on his FB profile, perhaps to get an idea of what people think in regards to foreign policy to get some insight, since he seems to be lacking any self formed opinions. One of the questions was a guy ranting about people calling out Christians to act like Christians when it comes to the refugees when we (they) put them down at every turn. There was a lot more to it, but my initial response that I didn’t post was:

Deep Thoughts… Gorillas and Kittens.

tumblr_lt65nkZT8G1qbcv93o1_500When I see pictures or videos of Koko, the gorilla, with little kittens, I think, “Awww, she’s holding a kitten!” I worry about her accidentally hurting the kitten, but all in all, I’m in awe, I’m touched, I see the connection she has with another mammal that’s not her species.

I then wonder, “When I’m playing with a neighborhood cat, or even my own, how many animals view me in the same way that I view Koko?” “Oooooh, look at that unusual animal holding that adorable, tiny kitten! It does have nurturing instincts! That’s so adorable, I hope it doesn’t hurt the kitten! By the way, why does that creepy animal only walk on two legs and is bald every where but the top of its head? Ewwww. We must scratch its eyes out and save the kitty.”

Things I Have To Keep Telling Stan ‘the cat’ Lee

Get off of my head, Stan!

I’m allowed to look out the window, Stan!

You already have food, Stan!

Stop staring at me, Stan!

My bra isn’t your bed, Stan!

I didn’t ask for your opinion, Stan!

Stop stealing my seat, Stan!

I’m on the computer, Stan!

Seriously, Stan?!

You can’t force me to pet you, Stan!

Claws are made for helping, not hurting, Stan!

(knocking me down while he runs into the other room) It’s just the doorbell, Stan! Nice to see you being so brave.

Deep Thoughts… Amish

I’m sitting here on a Friday night, my son is in bed, my fiance is at work and as I was prepping to watch a ‘live’ television show that I recorded, a deep thought crept in my head, “I wonder what I’d be doing right now if I were Amish.”

Since it’s now nighttime and the oil would have been burning for a good hour and a half, I imagine I would have put down the needlepoint that continued after the chores were done and dinner was cleaned up. JP would still be in bed and perhaps Geoffrey would be gathered with the man folk talking about man folk things. Fortunately my week in the shed would be over with and I can now join my kin in the main house.
