There's always something

On swearing:

Allie:  "Why did you just say a bad word?"

Me:  "I didn't say a bad word.  What did I say?"

Allie:  "The S word."

Me:  "No, I didn't."  (I didn't.)

Allie:  "Well, sometimes you say it in your head.  Don't you?  I can tell."

On boy bands:

Allie:  "In One Direction, is there a guy named Harry?"

Me:  "I have no idea.  Why are you asking?"

Allie:  "At the party, S, K and T were talking about One Direction.  'Harry's my favorite.  Harry's my least favorite.'"

Me:  "Oh."

Allie:  "I said, 'Who is this Harry person?'"

Me:  "That's a good question."

Allie:  "I think they should be called Zero Direction."

On wearing work clothes while I'm not at work:

Anna:  "Aren't you going to change clothes before we go get ice cream?"

Me:  "No.  We don't really have time.  I can just wear this."

Anna:  "But the workers are probably going to wonder why you look so fancy."

On playing Barbies with Emily:

Anna:  "She's supposed to be a worker at the snow cone place, not catching people jumping off the building."

(Apparently, the applicant had to pass a series of challenges, including catching bungee jumpers, before she was offered a position at the snow cone place.)

On fashion:

Allie:  "I'm a purple skirt kind of girl."

On technology:

Allie:  "Don't you know that the best way to communicate is by talking.  Not texting.  (In a mimic-like voice) I'm going to text this person.  I'm going to text that person.  He hasn't texted me back yet."

On band names:

Emily:  "When I was little, I thought that the Goo Goo Dolls were dolls, like the ones in It's a Small World."

Actually laughing out loud here too!!! Too funny!

And I've got to agree that talking is the best form of communication :)

Cindy said...

Ok. I absolutely love that they know who the Goo Goo Dolls are, and not who Harry from One Direction is. You're obviously doing an amazing job!
