I am always highly entertained by the things my kids say, and just because they are older now, doesn’t mean they have gotten any less entertaining. In fact, I tend to think that they are getting funnier, and I keep trying to get Alex to write his stuff down and try an open mic night at a local comedy club. Anyway, today has been rich in humorous conversations around our place!!
This morning, at breakfast~
Alex: I had an epic dream last night that I was Iron Man!
Me: Really? Were you flying?
Alex: Yep! And I was using those hand cannons and everything! It was awesome! But I can’t tell you everything, because my dream had spoilers in it, and you haven’t seen the movie yet!
Me: Seriously? Your dream had spoilers???
Later in the day, upon returning home from Jo-Ann Fabrics, where Abby and I bought a book entitled “Zombie Cupcakes: From the Grave to the Table With 16 Cupcake Corpses” by Zilly Rosen. When we started flipping through the recipes, we discovered that it is full of Zombie Movie Trivia, so I was quizzing her on it, even though we hadn’t seen most of the old zombie flicks.
Me: Okay, try this one: The movie “The Serpent and the Rainbow” (1988) is based on the nonfiction book of the same name by which anthropologist?”
Abby: The what???
Me: “The Serpent and the Rainbow”
Abby: Oh, great! Gay Slytherins!
Me: Wow. That was an amazing leap!!
Stay tuned. Kendall is coming, and that can only precipitate more hilarity!!!
