I am taking the liberty of being completely random again. It has been a while, and it's time again.
Annie was here this weekend and we were talking about what the kids wanted to be when they grow up and she mentioned that she would like to be an actress. Jimmy, ever the sensitive one, said that she should be a comedian. Annie said that she wouldn't be good because she's not funny. Jimmy, of course, chimed in with the opinion that if Annie were to even only appear on stage, then she would be funny enough. Annie, being the type who can give it just as well as she can take it, said that all a comedy strip would need for fodder was to run a tape of our everyday household and the public in general would be entertained for days.
Sometimes I really feel like she's right.
Let me give you a case in point.
Jimmy are I were in our new living room sitting on the floor when Elizabeth was getting ready for bed. For some reason, her clock had lost power and was blinking. She needed to set it for the right time so she could set her alarm and could get up in the morning. She called down the stairs to get the time. Jimmy looked at the clock and hollered up to her 'It's 9:43' then he went off to the kitchen to get a snack.
He reappeared shortly looking very smug. He sat back down beside me and in a very confiding whisper told me 'I tricked Elizabeth. The time I told her was 5 minutes different than the real time so she will always be early.'
Why, what time is it really?
The same whisper now accompanied by a giggle said '9:47 heehee'
Umm...Jimmy...that's not going to make her early...
The next thing was from the lips of babes...Jo to be exact.
When we got home from church this evening, we were just all kind of playing around in our new living room, and I went and get a bowl of blueberries to share. When they were all gone, the little dudes were taking turns putting the bowl on their heads.
When Gabriel put it on his, Elizabeth said, 'He looks Jewish'
Jo answers with 'And I'm strawish'
What is that Jo?
Gabriel's Jewish and I'm strawish.
But what is strawish?
It goes with Jewish.
I felt like we were playing a game of MadGab (which is a really fun game, by the way).
Juice-ish. It goes with straw-ish!
So Gabriel is juish and Jo is strawish!
Ahhh...is that tape rolling?
