Classic quotes, Vol. 13

Here are the latest quotes from my 5-year-old son D-, 2-year-old daughter M-, my wife J-, and me:

Me (to J-, once again dangerously undervaluing my hilarious genius): You being in a bad mood doesn't make me a jerk, it just makes me funny without being appreciated.

D- (as we walked past a church): Hey look! A window like a "t"!

M- (pleading with her brother after I explained to him that getting run over by a car would be lethal): And you would get a BWOOZE!!

D- (while building Duplos at the library): Dad, look! It's a dragon... with guns on him!

M- (repeating a gem of J-'s after seeing me in shorts on a mild day): You gonna freeze your bummy off.

D- (trying to start an unknown chant without the ability to spell): B! Y! B-M-J! B! Y! B-M-J!

Just wait til they get older and discover AND master sarcasm.

I'm just impressed that you actually lived after that comment to your wife! That had to take some real restraint on her part.

BMJ. Go team. He just needs to find a school with those initials and you'll eat your words. B! Y! All the cool people are saying it now. Twitter is amazing.

I'm with J - you're a "jerk". Not necessarily a "dork", per se ... wait. Lemme look up jerk ... wow, there are a lot to choose from. Gimme "offensive term referring contemptuously to somebody who behaves foolishly", but not "spicy and grilled". Cannibalism is SO rude!

(Did I get ANY of those quotation marks/punctuation right?)

According to me and the British, yes.

According to shortcut-happy nonsense-promoters, no.

So guess which scale REALLY matters?

Here's a gold star!

Mmmmmm... jerk chicken...

On an unrelated note, happy anniversary to my brother and sister-in-law!
